Are You Eating Kentucky Fried Chicken....KFC Fresh?


This Daddy's Blog

FRIDAYS FINAL THOUGHTS

Fridays Final Thoughts is where I post my thoughts about stuff that has happened over the course of the week or things that I have planned for the weekend.  Well this week I saw some tweets and they made me laugh.  No, not because they were funny, but because of how gross and disgusting the product the people were tweeting about.
I saw people tweeting and using the hashtag #KFCFresh.  They were talking about how great Kentucky Fried Chicken is and how they were making it fresh and they actual tweeter's were making the chicken and then eating it.  One example actually talked about how they were eating a KFC Chicken Pot Pie. OK that is when I got sick. KFC's Chicken Pot Pie has got to be one of the most disgusting things throw together.  Does anyone even realize that Colonel Sander may have actually died from eating his own chicken?  Do you not ever wonder why it's called a SECRET recipe?  They don't want you to know what's actually in the food you are buying. Kentucky Fired Crap = KFC.
In the book "Eat This Not That" it lays out what is in the KFC Chicken Pot Pie. Whats in that KFC Chicken Pot Pie? Check this out and then say you still want to go eat one.  82 ingredients in a chicken pot pie. 80 friggen 2.  WOW.

Lets get back to the whole big picture of Kentucky Fried Chicken and why they are a nasty place to eat.  I don't eat there to begin with but this morning on Good Morning America I saw a commercial for them. Talking about how fresh their food is. Yeah right.  Then I see boxes of chicken coming off the delivery truck and the boxes are labeled with

Now this is disturbing for a reason.  Last year T and I watched the life changing documentary Food Inc. and we saw some nasty things. One of the biggest things we took away from Food Inc. was how bad certain companies treat their animals and one of them was Tyson.  The way that Tyson and the people that run the chicken houses for Tyson treat the chickens is just so wrong. They are not the only one, but when I saw the Tyson logo on that box in the KFC commercial this morning I looked at T and we just laughed since all those #KFCFresh tweets talked about how fresh and great the KFC product was.



I hope that if you have not seen the Food Inc. documentary you will. Take the time. Even if you don't change how you eat, at least know what you are eating.  The Eat This Not That books are great too for just telling you what you are eating and what is better.  Have fast food chicken but if you are going to eat KFC the book will tell you to go the extra five minutes and go to (insert place) for better quality chicken. 

So I guess after blasting the #KFCFresh with facts on twitter, one of the ladies that was doing the #KFCFresh cooking thing decided to unfollow me. I think that is pretty funny. I don't mind. I actually love that. I think it is so amazing what people - bloggers will do for a free product. A free lunch or dinner.  I am not going to do a review on a product that I wont use or cant endorse. No way. And if you ask me to do some review on Kentucky Fired Chicken and the freshness of the product and how its made, sorry. Just cant do it. I'm calling bulls**t on you. Sell yourself out for some bad product and bogus a$$ stuff.

So after this little post, do you feel even a little more informed?  Did you already know how bad KFC and the food was?  Did you know HOW bad the food was?  We all know fast food isn't good for us, but did you ever even think about what you are eating or what you are letting your kids eat?

#KFCFresh (hashtag on twitter) isn't so fresh. But they must have a hell of a sales team to get people to buy into that.

Think about what you eat before you eat this weekend. That is all I am saying and asking!

I have been told by numerous people about the Food Inc. documentary. I totally agree about knowing where your food comes from even if people decided to continue to eat at fast foods. I saw those tweets also and said wow people will do anything for a buck even if it means promoting unhealthy food. That aside, I never thought of where my food came from until I had a child. Now we try to choose the best option of food for her by purchasing from local organic farmers.

Ah, yes. Food Inc. I didn't eat for weeks, seriously. Even things we think are healthy aren't. So team that up with Super Size Me, and you'd think I'd be a skinny mini! :)

I watched Food Inc and it definitely opened my eyes. I stopped buying Tyson products after that. And we don't eat at KFC either.

I think so many people have an ignorance, maybe innocently, maybe on purpose, to how bad our food industry is. I'm not surprised by anything anymore, and yes, did know about this. One should just stay away from fast food in general. Funny though that they can get away with advertising fresh at all...
