You could get better fried chicken, but sometimes only the Colonel's secret blend of 11 herbs and spices will do. KFC's unique Original Recipe combines old-fashioned saltiness with a slight undertow of zesty zip that is revered from Korea to Kuwait. Often paired with WingWorks these days, fried chicken is no longer your only option at the counter, just the preferred one. Buffalo wings or a Roasted Chicken Sandwich are available when you're not in the mood for a bucket of deep-fried food; or if you are in the mood but also on the go, grab a minibucket of deep-fried food: the Jason Alexander-endorsed Popcorn Chicken. Notable side dishes include perfectly consistent mashed potatoes with mellow brown gravy and succulent corn on the cob that comes complete with a stick for easy, one-handed eating.
