KFC & Taco Bell Tips (2)

KFC & Taco Bell: Colonel Sanders Thinks Outside the Bucket

Although some die hard Kentucky Fried Chicken fans think Colonel Sanders was rolling over in his grave when the aptly named Yum! Brands, Inc. began to combine KFC storefronts with Taco Bell storefronts, I think he was doing the worm. Colonel Sanders’ is clearly the parent of this lovechild, but it is clear that the Colonel’s Mexican maid was doing more than just cleaning. These two got together, and got it right. The Colonel took his eleven herbs and spices south of the border while the missus was out, and I hope he never comes back. I mean, where else can you conjure the perfect meal under one roof? Nowhere. Tacos and Fried Chicken go together like all of the other great health foods of the world, like Ice Cream and Cake, Coffee and Donuts, and Spam and Eggs. But, what else would you expect from the company that brought you Long John Silver’s? That’s right, the Colonel’s been hangin’ out with the Pirate, and a perfect storm of fast food goodness is about to converge over the culinary world. So let’s cross our fingers and hope that soon Capt. Silver’s world renowned Fish Planks and hush puppies will appear alongside our other favorites, like Popcorn Chicken and the Double Decker Taco. The food Gods are certainly smiling

Favorite Dish For an appetizer, I recommend a six-pack of Soft Taco Supremes with a six-pack of Biscuits. For an entrée, I recommend a bucket of Extra Crispy and a Seven-Layer Burrito. Then, you wash it all down with a 52 oz. Mountain Dew. But, save room for dessert, becuase we mustn’t forget about the Chaco Taco. “What is a Chaco Taco?” you ask. According to the not-so-Mexican producer of this delectable delight, Klondike, it is “artificially flavored fudge rippled reduced fat vanilla ice cream, a taco shell cone, milk chocolate flavored coating and crunchy peanuts,” which in technical terms makes it a Nutty Buddy shaped like a Taco. BRILLIANT!!! The chocolate “flavored” coating drapes perfectly over the taco-shaped waffle cone, and only hints at the divine swirl of flavor inside. With each bite, the faux fudge ripple rips through your soul as the reduced fat vanilla ice cream plays your heart strings like Liberace. Like the KFC/Taco Bell combo, the ice-cream/taco combo hits the mark dead on. I have seen the future, and it is Mexican infused!!!

KFC & Taco Bell: MM 50.5 Chicken and Mexican

I have not eaten at this KFC/Taco Bell

In 1939, Colonel Harland Sanders first gave the world a taste of his most famous creation, Original Recipe Kentucky Fried Chicken, featuring that secret blend of 11 herbs and spices. The Colonel is dead now, and his name is mostly gone from the franchises which are mostly known as KFC which stands for Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Now the KFCs are often combined with Taco Bell which is a strange combination IMHO.

Favorite Dish:
I like the extra crispy chicken (a fattening food if there ever was one), the honey bbq wings and the biscuits (also extremely fattening - probably worse than french fries).

Favorite Dish Taco Bell has sort of Mexican Fast Food, which I actually like. Taco Bell started out west as a restaurant called Taco Tia. The food is sort of Mexican in type. But if you ever compare the chalupa in Taco Bell to one in a Mexican restaurant you will see that they are not the same at all.

Most people remember the talking Chihuahua when they think of Taco Bell.

What I remember though is that the logo used to have more colors in it. In addition to red, purple, yellow, and white they used to also have orange and green Then they tried to open a location in Middleburg VA, and Middleburg had rules about display signs so that no one would put up a tasteless sign - their rule was no more than 3 colors. So Taco Bell changed their logo.
