KFC Canada introduces biscuits to menu

I like the KFC biscuits.
In between Popeyes and Church's in size and softness.
Hopefully it comes complimentary in personal sized combos.

They used to have some kind of biscuits or buns here in Canada when I was a kid (70s/80s) I'm pretty sure.

ETA: It was buns. They were really nice soft buns you got with the meals back then in Canada.

Yes, they were slices of warm bread about the size of a deck of cards. I remember them too.

Looking forward to trying them.

When they are fresh out of the oven, I enjoy the biscuits as much if not more than the chicken at Popeyes.

Church's is better but just smaller.
Popeyes is bigger but dry and compact texture.

It was called Grecian bread. It was awesome. Could buy whole loaves of it.
Their fried chicken, potato salad and bread was the ultimate comfort food meal for me.
Their food quality has sadly plummeted since their glory days.

Churchs chicken is so bland. I have tried it 2-3 times and just has no flavor to it. I think they are all closed now in the Toronto area.

Popeyes>KFC>Mary Browns>Churchs

That was back when they also gave out little packets of honey with the chicken.

I hate the biscuits. Any kind of corn meal biscuit. Dry , crumbly and tasteless.

I'll always pick Church's items on the menu over Popeye's any day of the week. There are a few places in the GTA where Popeye's and Church's are very close in proximity. On more than one occasion, we've grabbed chicken/biscuits from both places and plopped everything on the table for a free for all. Three out of three times, I've proven to my friends that Church's food was better and superior in every way to Popeye's. Church's hands down was the winner every time!

It's like a coffee, cola and other taste test, you have to have all the items together and try them out at the same meal.

That bread was nasty. It was *WET*. Yuck...

I never liked it as a kid... then on a trip to Florida my parents got us KFC takeout and... first time I had those buttermilk biscuits. Loved it, as well as the slaw that wasn't colored lime green mush, the mashed potatoes and gravy instead of the lame-ass fries, etc. After that trip, never was happy at KFC in Canada until "Scott's Chicken Villa" and the nasty bread went away (too bad the limp greasy fries held on).

(I know, I know, Col. Sanders himself was up here in Canada but he only controlled the chicken recipe... the other garbage -- limp fries, wet bread, green slaw -- was Canadian crap).

Not sure where they were giving you wet bread. I had it many many times, in the GTA, and it was never wet. You could even buy it in bags like regular loaves.
This is what it looked like
