I agree on the disgusting OP, but heck no on the shrimp and grits! Done well, that's a fine meal. Have you tried it?

KFC using doughnuts for a sandwich
is not that different from the McDonald's McGriddle sandwiches that are maple flavored griddle cakes and very sweet

Although I won't try it for health reasons, it does sound kind of delicious. I love sweet/salty/savory combinations. Too bad today's KFC chicken is a poor imitation for what it used to be.

What I don't understand is, when I go grocery shopping, the people in the produce department shopping are often very overweight. It is difficult to get around some of them, yet they are carefully buying produce? I had a neighbor, 89 years old, thin as a rail, who would stop at Burger King and buy a bag of 12 hamburgers and stick them in the fridge and graze on them.



I agree KFC used to be better in the 80's and 90's and their BBQ chicken was a big hit. In general, I think they are good still, but the coleslaw isn't as good as it used to be.

It sounds and looks gross, sure. Does it taste gross though, factoring in how taste is subjective.

We don't own this. We'll fight you over grits and cornbread and whether either should have sugar in them (NO!).. We have some weird stuff, like a pineapple and mayo sandwich (Don't ask).. But we do not take ownership of Chicken and Waffles.


Boiled peanuts are the official snack food of SC.. We take those seriously as well.. We order sweet tea and get a packet of sugar on the side.. There'll be hell to pay.
Afraid that actually we might need to at least take co-ownership. Chicken and waffles was one of the curiosities I learned of when I moved to Memphis at least thirty years ago. It was a staple at a lot of outdoor events, church bazaars, charity events, etc.
It's actually not bad, depending on how it's served. In spite of all the comments about how it sounds disgusting, it's just a combination of sweet and savory, pretty much like barbecue sauce or honey mustard on any kind of meat. It's not as weird tasting as it sounds.

I tried KFC's new fried-chicken-and-doughnut sandwich, and it's a near-perfect answer to the craze over the sold-out Popeyes sandwich

"Move over Chick-fil-A and Popeyes KFC may have taken the battle over chicken sandwiches to a new level.

The fast food chain announced its testing a fried chicken sandwich that has glazed doughnuts as buns.

The sandwich will cost just under $6.

Customers can also choose a chicken and doughnuts basket meal chicken tenders or bone-in chicken plus a doughnut which will cost $5.49.

KFC said customers who just want a doughnut can add one to any meal for $1.

But the sweet and savory combos are not available nationwide. KFC is only testing them for a limited time in Norfolk and Richmond, Virginia, and in Pittsburgh."


Yum

Two of nature's perfect foods combined!

-white flour, white sugar, and white grease...

combined with crispy flour and grease encasing hormone saturated chicken.

Perfect
Sounds good!

People throwing them, or...?


KFC has come up with some weird crap the past few years. The double down, for example..


I think they should take some of the money they're throwing to marketing and use it to fix up some of their restaurants. Because I believe that's the biggest problem they have. Every KFC i've gone to in the past 10 years has just been nasty.
