When you look at the KFC logo, you can’t help but to not take it seriously. It’s an old, smiley guy with a white beard and who he really is doesn’t really come across your mind when you’re sinking your teeth into a crispy, juicy, and delicious piece of fried chicken.

However, perhaps only 65 years old KFC brand was founded, he really understood how difficult the coming of success.

There is also a story behind it. It was started by Colonel Sanders but before he had a small restaurant on a highway which
he closed because of a new highway built nearby. At the age of 65 and turning broke, he had small recipe which he wanted to market to restauranters and hoteliers in return of some percentage in profits. So he started marketing it and he had to get through 1009 refusals before somebody finally said yes to his proposal and the rest is history. KFC is one of the largest food
chains in the world.

There’s an informative article at WebMD that examines a study of 13 fast food restaurant chains and how healthy – or unhealthy – their kids meals are. It should come as no surprise that they got a failing grade.
Ninety-three percent of the choices had too many calories. While that’s high, I found it a little surprising to see that less than half (45 percent) had too much external image mag-glass_10x10.gif. I just figured that would be much higher.

The article categorizes the worst and best choices you can make for your kids at some of the establishments they studied. Those you should avoid include Chili’s, KFC, Sonic and Burger King. Those with healthier selections include Subway, Denny’s and Arby’s.
The fast food industry disputes the claims of the study, but it seems they aren’t hearing what is being said. The claim is that most choices are unhealthy. But they dispute by saying that they have external image mag-glass_10x10.gif. Right, but most aren’t.
Some blame has to go to consumers who make poor choices. But let’s be honest. If you’re in Burger King, and you smell the grilled beef and fries, it’s mighty tempting to skip the dainty salad that’s buried beneath all the other fatty sodium-filled choices.

KFC – One of the Kings of fast food, it’s time for KFC to come out of the Diet Closet and run with their original name: Kentucky Fried Chicken. The Diet World is a vast, much different terrain than it was in yesteryear.
Although we still recommend that a dieter should hide from fried to drop excess pounds, there comes a time when we must all hone our dieting skills and execute control over what we pass through our lips. I can’t imagine going through life, never being able to sample the Colonel’s tasty original fried chicken recipe.
Breakfast: Since KFC doesn’t do breakfast for obvious reasons, we recommend that you either drop off at the Subway for the 270 calorie Egg & Cheese on Deli Roll OR that you enjoy a bowl of yummy cereal sprinkled with sliced fruit and dunked in skimmed milk. – Allow 270 Calories for breakfast.
Lunch: 1 Original Drumstick, 1 mashed potato with gravy, 1 biscuit for about 450 Calories
Dinner: ½ Chunky Chicken Pot Pie PLUS an order of green beans – About 460 Calories
Be sure to incorporate a couple pieces of fruit, such as two small plums, for a mid-afternoon and a late evening snack. Also keep in mind that this KFC planner is not intended to mirror a healthy meal suggestion rather to provide a pattern for dieters who do fast food now and then. Daily menu suggestions are based on calories.
The above menu is in dire need of more fruit, more dairy and more vegetables.
Foodnote: The KFC Snacker contains 320 calories, 17 grams of fat, 1 gram of trans fat, 25 ml of cholesterol, 690 milligrams of sodium, 29 carb grams, 2 grams of fiber, and 14 grams of protein.
The KFC Buffalo Snacker contains 260 calories, 9 grams of fat, 1.5 grams of saturated fat, 25 ml of cholesterol, 870 milligrams of sodium, 31 carb grams, 2 grams of fiber, and 14 grams of protein.



KFC might be the first fast food chain to slash Trans fat foods from its menu as KFC is reported to have announced to ban the use of partially hydrogenated vegetable oil in 5,500 of its restaurants in the US by April 2007. Facts provided point out that Kentucky Fried chicken and potato wedges contain a total of 279kcal enveloping cholesterol, saturated fats and sodium.
Followed by the failure of McDonalds ‘Go Green’ menu of salads and Walt Disney’s most awaited Trans fat free foods, the attempts of KFC to use Trans fat free oil will be scrutinized on the basis of final flavor and texture, and any alteration in this might effect the expectations of consumers form KFC. Therefore, KFC has to strike a balance between flavor and nutrition to please and nutritional advocates and consumers.

KFC's logo used from 1997 until November 2006

Early television advertisements for KFC regularly featured Colonel Sanders licking his fingers and talking to the viewer about his secret recipe, and by the 1960s both the Colonel and the chain's striped bucket had become well-known. The bucket as product placement can be seen in the hands of both Annette Funicello and Dwayne Hickman in 1965's How to Stuff a Wild Bikini, and was also featured prominently in the 1968 Peter Sellers vehicle, The Party. The Colonel made appearances as himself in Jerry Lewis's The Big Mouth (1967), Herschell Gordon Lewis' Blast-Off Girls (1967) and Al Adamson's Hell's Bloody Devils (1970), as well as an appearance in 1968 on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In.

Despite his death in 1980, Sanders remains a key symbol of the company in its advertising and branding.

Before he became a platinum-selling pop star in the 1970s, Barry Manilow sang the commercial jingle "Get a Bucket of Chicken" [1], which was later included on Barry Manilow Live as part of "A Very Strange Medley."

Throughout the mid 1980s, KFC called on Will Vinton Studios to produce a series of humorous, claymation ads. These most often featured a cartoon-like chicken illustrating the poor food quality of competing food chains, mentioning prolonged freezing and other negative aspects.[43] TV ads also featuredFoghorn Leghorn advising Henry Hawk to visit the restaurant for better chicken.

In the 1980s, KFC was an associate sponsor for Junior Johnson's NASCAR Winston Cup Series cars, with such drivers as Darrell Waltrip, Neil Bonnett, and Terry Labonte.

In 1997, KFC briefly re-entered the NASCAR Winston Cup Series as sponsor of the #26 Darrell Waltrip MotorsportsChevrolet with driver Rich Bickle at the Brickyard 400.

A co-branded Long John Silver'sand KFC

By the late 1990s, the stylized likeness of Colonel Sanders as the KFC logo had been modified. KFC ads began featuring an animated version of "the Colonel" voiced by Randy Quaid with a lively and enthusiastic attitude. He would often start out saying "The Colonel here!" and moved across the screen with a cane in hand. The Colonel was often shown dancing, singing, and knocking on the TV screen as he spoke to the viewer about the product.

The animated Colonel is uncommon today. Still using a humorous slant, the current KFC campaign revolves mostly around customers enjoying the food. It also features a modified version of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" as the theme song for practically all its commercials, though the restaurant actually hails from Kentucky.

In 2006, KFC claimed to have made the first logo visible from outer space, though Readymix has had one since 1965.[44][45] KFC says "It marked the official debut of a massive global re-image campaign that will contemporize 14,000-plus KFC restaurants in over 80 countries over the next few years." The logo was built from 65,000 one-foot-square tiles, and it took six days on site to construct in early November. The logo was placed in the Mojave Desert near Rachel, Nevada.[46] It is located in the northern section of Rachel, Nevada at 37.6460°N 115.7507°W .

Many KFC locations are co-located with one or more of Yum! Brands restaurants, Long John Silver's, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, or A&W Restaurants. Many of these locations behave like a single restaurant, offering a single menu with food items from both restaurants.[47]

The resurrected Kentucky Fried Chicken logo

One of KFC's latest advertisements is a commercial advertising its "wicked crunch box meal". The commercial features a fictional black metal band called "Hellvetica" performing live, the lead singer then swallows fire. The commercial then shows the lead singer at a KFC eating the "wicked crunch box meal" and saying "Oh man that is hot".

In 2007, the original, non-acronymic Kentucky Fried Chicken name was resurrected and began to reappear on company marketing literature and food packaging, as well as some restaurant signage.
In 2010, an advertisement was shown in Australia showing an Australian cricket fan giving West Indies fans KFC chicken to keep them quiet. The ad sparked a debate over racism in the ad, suggesting that all black people eat fried chicken. Fried chicken was eaten by black slaves[citation needed] because it was cheap and easy to make. Though KFC stated that it was "misinterpreted by a segment of people in the US",[48] the ad was later pulled from TV. However, several Australian commentators have expressed the opinion that the ad is not racist, because this is not a racial stereotype in Australia and the cricket fans in the ad are not African American, but West Indies cricket supporters (the West Indies cricket team was playing a Test cricket series against the Australian cricket team at the time of the ad).[49][50]
Also in 2010, Yum! signed a naming rights deal with the Louisville Arena Authority for Louisville's new downtown arena, which opened on October 10 of that year as the KFC Yum! Center
