(Huffington Post)   To honor Col. Sanders' Southern heritage, KFC Japan unveils Colonel's Bacon Potato Fritters - mashed potatoes mixed with bacon bits, herbs, and sour cream before being battered and deep-fried. Surprisingly, they don't top it with a Confederate flag   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 68

Why would they? More soldiers from Kentucky fought for the Union than the CSA, and the only military Harlan served in was that of the USA.

Sounds better than the bullshiat they fry for the Chicken Festival where I live. They want $10 a plate for a piece of chicken and a biscuit. fark them,I can make that shiat in my own kitchen for maybe at the most a $1.50 a plate and that plate includes two sides,the chicken and the biscuit.

/At the lovely Sanders stage,that rattles the windows in my apt,last year I saw people clapping. I get curious and go to look at the stage. There isn't anyone on it. Those brain dead bastards were clapping for the radio that was on between the scheduled shiat.

Wow, the "confederate flag" joke was hilarious. That never, ever gets old. It remains funny every time it is referenced, no matter how many times I hear it. Very clever and witty, submitter. I hope no one ever comes up with a new, fresh joke with which to generalize southerners.

They article lost me when they fried it.

I use butter and sour cream when I make mashed potatoes, and they are excellent. The bacon sounds good too, but that would add a lot of work just frying a couple pieces of bacon just to chop-up and mix into potatoes.
 
2012-09-25 10:32:11 AM  
Kentucky was not part of the confederacy it was neutral during the war thus no confederate flag is needed. Sad knowledge of history.

At this point it's basically a sour cream bacon tot.

Which still sounds delicious.

Ever since The Colonel stopped doing random inspections and driving away with the pressure cookers of KFC's that weren't up to snuff, the chain has gone downhill. I would not eat at one. Bojangles is currently the best of the chicken places.

you know, we were like rly insensitive to the Japanese dudes during ww2. what did they do to deserve Americans occupying the're country?! occupation is wrong.

imagine if we were like invaded by foreigners who don't speak or language, like we'd want to fight back to.

just becuz they sneak attacked pearl harbor on 9/11, that doesn't give us the rite to nuke them.

Memo to subby: Harland Sanders was born in Indiana...(they were part of the Union). He opened his first restaurant in Kentucky (which was a neutral state) so the whole confederate flag reference shows that you're dumb, too lazy to do a bit of research or failed at trolling.

As of 1861, both Kentucky and Missouri had stars on the flag, in spite of both states not actually seceding.

I make some bacon cheddar mashed potatoes with butter, sour cream, sharp cheddar, and bacon. It's basically a loaded baked potato in mashed form. Farkin' delicious and well worth the bacon cooking time.

As subtle as it may seem to the uneducated, there are significant differences between Hillbillys & Rednecks.

Por ejemplo:

A Redneck drinks cheap booze while a Hillbilly makes their own.

The list goes on...

Truth. No fast food is better than Bojangles. I worked in one for about an hour when I was 16... Do you know how much lard they put in their biscuits? So much, so much tasty delicious lard. I'd still make an appearance at KFC to try this though. I've never had fried mashed potatoes and I'd like to know how they are without putting in any sort of effort.

But now I live in Texas, the worst place in the world because it's not far enough East for Bojangles and not far enough west for In And Out. We have whataburger, where you can get an average burger in just under 30 min! Unless there's more than two people there ahead of you, then it's going to take a lot longer than that. At least the move has given me a reason to stop eating fast food.

Seriously though, whataburger sucks. I can cook a 7 mm thick burger with all the fixings in 15 min, but it somehow takes them 20? In 20 min I'd be able to add in some cold fries, but unlike whataburger I wouldn't be able to get them stale in that amount of time.

The only problem I had with the Double Down was the national panty-twisting that resulted. Like no one's eaten a couple of breaded chicken breasts and a couple pieces of bacon and cheese in one sitting before? Some site (maybe even the Consumerist) published a list of all the other fast food stuff that was much higher in calories (hint: a lot).

The double is just chicken cordon blue and it had less calories than a big mac.

I think the confederate flag joke was more about a sort of cultural misunderstanding/ignorance that exists in places that are far away from other places.
They'd probably put a confederate flag, thinking it would be ok and is associated with some part the the US's history.
Maybe/kinda like that hitler-themed resto in India.
I think that was the joke.

Anyway, these things sound delicious and I'd like to order a bucket.

Votes. There was a vote of which of three "Colonel's Recipe" to be turned into an in-store item. There was these, a "proto-biscuit" (as in, the old-fashioned original version of the current biscuit), and cinnamon doughnuts.

Either they or McDonalds used to have an excellent chowder sold in a bowl made out of a hollowed-out ball-shaped loaf of bread.
