KFC customer posts photo of chicken head found in her order

Is a chicken head white meat or dark meat?

© Provided by New York Daily News - Woman claims to have found a chicken head mixed in with her fried chicken.

That was hardly the first thing on the mind of an Englishwoman who posted social media photos of a crispy chicken noggin she said she found in her hot wing meal.

“I found a fried chicken head in my hot wing meal,” a woman named Gabrielle wrote Monday. “Put me off the rest, ugh.”

After noticing Gabrielle had still given her meal a two out of five star review, KFC UK responded, “Probably the most generous 2-star review ever.”

The fast food joint’s Twitter reply admitted their customer’s finding was “a shocker,” but also saw a silver lining.

“Honestly, Wow. We were genuinely surprised by this photo,” KFC UK responded on Twitter. “Baffled, even.”

In its defense, KFC UK wrote that Gabrielle’s finding proves the fast food chain uses real chickens, as advertised.

KFC UK lamented the fact that the Instagram feed “Takeaway Trauma” had picked up on the chicken-head instance, but didn’t deny that such things can happen — on rare occasions — when serving up chicken meat. The company also said it had offered Gabrielle free chicken, which she allegedly accepted. She was also invited to come visit one of its kitchens so she can see how meals are made.

British media outlet the Independent reported that the chicken-head debacle happened in southwest London.

The Subway sandwich franchise is engrossed in a highly publicized lawsuit in the U.S. over allegations that its tuna products do not contain the kind of fish advertised by that fast food joint. They vigorously defend their tuna offerings.

I know Shona1 has seen them, and for you I'll post them here again.

Just a kiosk that opened not too long ago, and has been busy since, so hopefully it will remain a long time.  A few  metres away a man is busy shucking the fresh caught oysters and scallops.

.

.Dressed oysters on the grill on the right, and dressed scallops on the grill on the left.

.

The dressed scallops.  I don't know what's on the left, and haven't seen them for a while.  If they're escargots I could kick myself for not trying them.

800

.

The dressed oysters, When they are not busy, the grills are not on, and when ordered they are cooked on another grill that faces the other direction, so they are never overcooked.

800

I visit that stand and buy their seafood once or twice a week - I just love those oysters and scallops.  And now, everybody, eat your hearts out - the price - 4 oysters (and they give you 5 if they're small), 10 yuan, the equivalent of US$1.60, (only 40 cents each) and 5 scallops, 15 yuan, the equivalent of US$2.50 (just 50 cents each)

Thank you for posting it Buzz, the scallops look delicious. I am not big on oysters, but if they are made different I might give them a try. The prices are cheap, over here you would pay a lot more. I get them in a restaurant broiled in butter and spices for $20 or more.

If you ever get Conch Ceviche right on the beach, you literally look your meal i

n the eye(s) right before they 

force it out of the shell and behead it. 

They dice the whole animal so fast...and onto the grille it goes while they 

dice onions greens and garlic, maybe a touch of rum

It's sublime.

All the while the chef is talking, distracting and starting a bidding war for the victims

Well there are certain organs that are often served as meals. I like beef liver and onions, and chopped chicken liver as an appetizer, and I have eaten sweetbreads.  I'm still alive so I don't think it harmed me.

Liver is like head cheese Filet Mignon.   The usual ingredients were parts not used  elsewhere like brains, ears, feet, tongue, eyes, etc

You haven't lived until you've tasted a plate of that nasty

No, I don't eat ears, feet, eyes, brains, etc.  Although the Chinese eat the eyes of fish.  There is a tradition that to honour someone at a banquet, using chopsticks (of course) you pluck the eye of a fish and put it on the plate of the person next to you.  When I was sitting next to the person who was the host at a banquet, when the fish was served, he placed it in front of me to have the first piece but I plucked the eye and put it on his plate. Everyone at the banquet stood and applauded me.

Another interesting thing at the many banquets I was invited to is that everyone should contribute some kind of entertainment. I used to either sing songs in English or French, or tell riddles, that my friend who was bilingual would translate to Chinese.  The one that always stumped them was the one about the airplane.

Amish scrapple is all that without the gelatin binder, they use cornmeal and waste nothing of the pig.

The joke used to be, how many bug parts per million were allowable by the FDA or FSIS.

My mother told us that the occasional piece of straw or fly wing never killed anyone, lol.

I've been seeing lately a lot of stories about meat manufactured from plants, even done by 4D projection, so I don't blame them for making it clear.

I think the most surprising part of this story is that the customer posted a two star review.  KFC has gotten so awful that even a meal sans chicken head gets one star from me.

I bought my last bucket of KFC chicken in, I think April or May of 2020.  My son requested it.  And it was awful.  There was more fat than meat in it, and I don't know if there's much in the world more gag-inducing than chicken fat.  We each got a piece, picked at it, then tried another piece, and gave up.  I haven't been back since then.

I guess at least there was no chicken head.

I got the potato skins a while back, and they were literally just that.  There was no potato on them.  It’s like someone got the bright idea that you could peel the potatoes to make mashed potatoes and then scrape the skins out of the bottom of the sink and toss them in the deep fryer.  The rest of the meal was equally terrible, and the restaurant was the dirtiest establishment I’ve ever seen.

Well, Hal ordered potato skins and what he got was what he ordered.  What I take issue with is the pictures they use for their advertising and menus, showing a nice thick amount of chicken in the bun, and when you get it it's less than half the amount of chicken than you saw in the picture.  You can add "exaggerating" to "economizing".

For me the contrast is worse than you think.  It has now become impossible for me to access IMDb through any browser, English or Chinese, and that site was necessary for me to create and accurately .score movie quizzes based on genre, and also now makes it difficult to create and score quizzes using any other method.  Creating and scoring movie quizzes was one of the passtimes I enjoyed most spending my time doing.
