      No, not really. fried chicken is edible, but compared to burgers, fish n chips, pizza, kebabs, chinese or curries its rubbish. I have it about once a year when my dad suddenly gets a craving for it, and hes dissapointed every time lol

      I would die for KFC. I will leave a nightclub early to make sure I get to KFC before it shuts.
      Here they shut at 1 and in Munich around 2 :P

      MSG doesn't even have any proven risks
      MSG = Flavour enhancer. flavour = nutrition. Fake flavour = fake nutrition

      Im not saying its causes mental problems and everything else people think is bad about it, But, it has been proven to be and is hense named a 'flavour enhancer'

      If your cooking something tasty you can add it (seasoning and herbs are better IMO lol) like some people in the far east do but theres not much point as its tasty already and MSG is only in low quality or preserved food.

      My local KFC at home is always busy so the food is always fresh, 3 piece variety meal with gravy :coma:

      I like the Big Daddy burger as well but trying to get one at uni in Manchester is nigh on impossible given pretty much every one has gone Halal :mad:

      A flavour enhancer can mask nutritional value because taste is based around you sensing nutritional value and personal preference of food.

      You need water - your thirsty, you need protein - meat etc

      MSG can make you think KFC is a good source of protein when it might not be because the flavour is enhanced making your body think its more meaty goodness that it is.

      Because we all have good diets these cravings are not as obvious as they used to be but they are still there if you can be bothered to deprive yourself of something for a week or so and see how much you think about it in the last few days.

      No, obviously nobody is delusional enough to think that KFC is actually a good source of nutrients, you don't need to blame it on a huge corporate conspiracy theory.

      Still tastes awesome + i'd go so far as to say the guilt adds a little extra something

      KFC factory farm their chickens in the most horrible way. They overcrowd them so severely that they have to cut the beaks off their chicks so that they don't start to fight and peck each other. I don't know how anyone could face eating anything that comes from such an unsanitary, extremely cruel environment.

      I haven't ventured into my local KFC since someone found some part of a mouse in their food!

      I was never keen before that though to be honest.
