The pieces are comically small now. I think what used to be a thigh pc has now become 2 pieces. I understand costs of business is constantly going up (food cost, minimum wage increase, rent, etc) but I'd rather they raise the price a bit than give us this garbage

heh it's a throw-away piece that accidentally got stuck in the fryer.
Call it what you will but they counted it and its twin as 2 pieces towards the bucket of 12 I bought.

They still make good chicken. Just don't buy buckets where they can throw in chicken-bites like this.

sketchy corner store near me (Sherbourne/Dundas. S/W corner) has a Wacky Wednesday special. Two pieces dark meat. Leg and thigh plus they stuff the rest of box with wedges. Just $2.99

Haven't found anything cheaper around here.

looks like a chicken nugget. If that the size of a thigh, imagine the size of a nugget.

use to like the taste of kfc but haven't been in 5 years switched to popeyes and not popeyes (due to Tim Horton;s takeover) the quality is deteriorating. My place to go Chick n Joy

I swear I remember a popeyes around that area which to me was very strange.
could possibly be former Popeyes franchisee gave up the franchise and open their own non royalty store.
WE see this a lot in the pizza and wings business.

Close. Used to be one at South East corner of Sherbourne/Queen. Went on to become two failed pubs.
An earlier version of this article incorrectly described a behavior of crows exposed to crow corpses. Live crows only touch, attack and attempt intercourse with crow corpses, they do not scavenge them. (Actual NYT correction)

Holy smokes, wish I read this first before going there today. Ordered a 4 piece with fries and gravy, the actual size of the chicken pieces was incredible, wtf happened to KFC?!?

First time being there in many years, will never set foot in there again, what a ripoff.

We still have popeyes :(
But i miss that home style with light batter! I remember it being so delicious when i was a kid.

Funny story... My parents said that when i was born... They celebrated by buying a bucket of kfc! They were refugees new to Canada... So eating a big bucket of nothing but meat was a big deal :lol: but "Canadian chicken is amazing... But their vegetables are strange and mushy... How do they grow these?."
That was my mom's first experience with coleslaw.

Got KFC last night, the festive double bucket. Chicken pieces were same as usual, nice and fresh, same normal size as always.

I went to KFC last night and was so shocked by the size of the chicken that I had to google it. It looks like it's an actual thing.
