The KFC French Fries Experiment

UPDATE: KFC has fries again. The world is once more, a better place. 🙂

Yesterday I wrote about how peculiar it was that KFC was running out of french fries. A few people left comments about how they (1) really did go to KFC to find that the fries have been replaced with mashed potatoes (not really complaining here) or (2) are so curious that they want to go to the nearest KFC branch and order a value meal that comes with a side order of fries and see whether they really lost stock.

As a blogger experiment, I wonder how much time it will take for information like this to disseminate – and on the other side of the coin, have a KFC rep actually be shocked to find out how Filipino bloggers are wondering what happened to their french fries. Honestly, I think they should be flattered – for a commotion like this to actually make it to the blogosphere.

So there you go. Go to your nearest KFC branch and order a meal with fries. Leave a comment here whether your branch has or not 🙂

maybe they read your post and re-stocked =) Or maybe they figured out you’d blog about them and intentionally replaced your fries with mashed potatoes.

Went to KFC at SM San Lazaro earlier after shopping.

Though I didn’t order fries with my meal, I asked the crew if they have fries available.

They do have it, as they pointed to the machine where they cook the fries — full of freshly-fried french fries!

I thought at first, with hope, that KFC took regular fries off the menu temporarily because they were replacing the trans-fat laden precooked ones. I hope a KFC rep clears this up–or maybe they won’t lest they be pressed to admit to trans fats in their food.

How stupid is this post? why on earth would you even bother to blog about KFC fries is that a momentous experience in your life that you order a freaking fries and they didn’t have it? Did that made your world stop?

Or you are just trying to continue fooling us that you are one of the best filipino blogger by blogging about mundane stupid things or maybe people stopped feeding you information that you pass off as your own thoughts that is why you posted this?
