KFC launches NEW lunch special

Kentucky Fried Chicken launched their newest special yesterday: a local lunch special for only 11 florins, about 6 USD. The package comes with two chicken legs, rice, fried banana and a soft drink. Instead of the fried banana you may also choose for a corn cob. From Monday to Friday you can order your lunch special between 11 AM and 3 PM.

During a press conference at the newest location of KFC Aruba in the La Salle straat, marketing representative Johana Jacobs-Alvarez Blanquicet explained to the local press what this great bang for the buck deal is all about. “The place where you get your favorite chicken, sandwiches, snacks, sweets and sides will now make lunch easy and quick with this grab & go concept.” Aruba has four KFC locations, all ready to prepare your lunch.

Some History
KFC is an American fast food restaurant chain headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, that specializes in fried chicken. It is the world’s second-largest restaurant chain after McDonald’s, with 22,621 locations globally in 136 countries as of December 2018. Whether you call it KFC or Kentucky Fried Chicken, the restaurant that made founder Colonel Sanders a household name is one of the world’s biggest and most successful fast food chains. The blend of 11 herbs and spices that went into Sanders’ original fried chicken recipe is still in use today, and its components remain a mystery, even though many have tried to decipher it (some claim to have reverse-engineered the recipe, while writer William Poundstone famously asserted that it’s only flour, salt, pepper, and MSG). A Sanders-signed copy of the recipe is inside a vault in KFC’s Louisville headquarters, and even the manufacturers don’t know what goes into it: Half of the mix is made by Griffith Laboratories, and then it’s sent to McCormick, where the rest is added.
