Scotland: It's a different world

Imagine my surprise and delight upon arriving into Edinburgh last weekend and finding that our hotel was a stone's throw from KFC. But wait, there's more. After a particularly boozy awards bash on Friday night I decided the only sensible cure was to pay the colonel a visit. It would seem Scotland has their own regional variations on the classic menu, including paninis! Both a spicy and italian version were available. Naturally, I opted for the latter in order to provide a better comparison to the almighty Zinger Tower and I have to say, it fared very well indeed. Soft, toasted panini, swiss cheese, a Zinger piece of chicken, sliced in half to fit the panini and salsa. Though you might not be able to tell from my lager-ravaged face, it was delicious.

Kentucky GRILLED Chicken??

It was only a matter of time until the Colonel would have to join other fast food chains in offering a low-fat, healthier menu option. According to Brand Republic, KFC are setting up to release a line in Kentucky Grilled Chicken, already being sampled in Australia. Under the name "Cayan Grill" the grilled chicken meal weighs in at less than half the fat and calorie content of the original recipe chicken. A spokeswoman from KFC UK reported that there were no plans to release the grilled variant in the UK, but this could just be until an official announcement is made.

Colonel's face disfigured, KFBloggers raging

Thanks to an anonymous tip off (and, it has come to my attention that Google Streetview is disfiguring the sweet face of our Lord Harland Sanders. Apparently the software recognises the faces of the general public and blurs them for privacy reasons, but will also do so to any signage featuring a distinguishable face. Surely this system should have some kind of built-in understanding that defacing the Colonle is the equivalent of defacing the Queen's face on say, a stamp or bank note?? Somebody should be severely punished for this outrage!
