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.
A lot of people like salads. There are overweight people in my family but itís just part of how we always had dinner that thereís salad first. They also like fruit, etc and there is always a veggie with dinner. Itís not unusual IMO to like produce and junk food too.

They eat salad and put a creamy dressing with hundreds upon hundreds of calories on it, plus cheese, plus bacon bits and fried chicken etc etc.

Salads at chains with ranch of similar dressings have well over 1000 calories alone. Now throw in a beer and some fried appetizers and you're pushing 1500+ calories for a single meal.

Most folks issues are they eat a small amount of "veggie" (normally fried or cooked with butter) and a large amount of meat and bread.

Yes I know they put fattening salad dressing on it. The post was in response to someone who asked why are they even in the produce department?

I like pistachio pudding and I like mashed potatoes. Doesn't mean two things you like mixed together is a good idea.

I agree, it's gone way downhill. I thought it was delicious up into the 90's. The last time I bought it was about 10 years ago and it was pretty pathetic. Now I'd rather have fried chicken from the grocery store deli than from KFC.

Using a glazed donut as a bun is nothing new. There was a hamburger joint doing that a decade ago. I think it's disgusting. I can't stand sweet stuff on my animal protein. Makes me gag.

Shrimp and grits is amazing. And grits and greens. And boiled peanuts. But i draw the line at fried chicken and sweet breads.

Looks disgusting! On a side note, it's really strange that a major US chain like Popeye's has been "sold out" of their sandwich for over a month! That's unheard of.

The GOOD kind of diarrhea, right? The kind when you still have the happy memory of how good the food was when it went into your mouth.

I guess with the popularity of the heinous combo of chicken and waffles, why not chicken and donuts? Americans will eat anything sweet. What's next, cinnamon candy coated steak? Shrimp in vanilla pudding, oh wait, we already have that (shrimp and grits). Maybe foie gras with skittles? All examples of garbage American food that just need to go away and off menus so that good dishes can be offered.
