Well these guys are wing-diddly-licious and just as the Colonel said, finger-lickin’ good. No 11 secret herbs and spices here peeps. To be honest, I think that shady old geezer with the dodgy goatee is bullshitting about that little catchphrase. His chicken is flavoured with salt, MSG and self-loathing and the jury is still out on what the other things are. Lucky for you guys I don’t need to be all bloody secret squirrel about my ingredients, I’m happy to share my recipes, so bugger off back to Kentucky with all your mystery and lies Mr Sanders.
