400px famous bowl

Last year I spent a little while in Kentucky. While there, I took the opportunity to revel in all that the state stands for, at least if you happen to be an ignorant Londoner: bourbon, weak and rather nasty beer and, of course, fried chicken.

Now, though, I realise that I missed out on something. And that something, ladies and gentlemen, is the KFC Famous Bowl – a snack that, unbelievably, Colonel Sanders has decided not to bring to the UK.

There are several wonderful reviews online. One, sadly now removed from the LA Times website, apparently described eating the bowl as “like throwing up in reverse”. In the meantime, might I suggest perusing the Onion’s “Bowl at the howling rim of famous-ality“. Probably not a good idea if you plan on actually eating in the near future, though.
