KFC small very thin paper bag

The new KFC small paper bag torn apart under the food’s weight. Paper cover is more like it.

If they have to double up the bag to make it stronger, how much do two of those bags cost vs one stronger bag in the first place? lol
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Sounds very unhygienic even more so with covid.

I wouldn't be surprised if they are thinning the bag to save money, or yours had a tear that propagated.
Or both.
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburders eat people

I noticed this with grocery bags. They are so thin ... you can’t re-use them as garbage bags. Half the time they got holes all over the bottom from the trip home!

Freshco bags are the best.

Hard to believe the weight of kfc food caused the bag to tear under its own weight.

With the way kfc resizing has taken place, I would not be surprised if that was a 20 piece in that bag.

Canada, eh?
Ordered a mighty bucket for 2 yesterday, same issue as OP. Walked out and dropped the entire bag on the ground.

Chicken was too mighty to be contained in a bag.

I ordered two small boxes last month and the lady gave a middle bag. It almost slipped from my hands as well but it didn’t get torn. The picture that I post is the small bag and it cannot handle the weight of two small boxes. The edge of the box cut through the paper and I almost dropped it. On the other hand, the large bag that they gave me last Christmas for the bucket chicken was strong.

The small kfc bag already falling apart. I happened to go grocery shopping across the street so I put the kfc boxes into that grocery plastic bag to bring it home.

If you know anyone who gets the green Mandarin takeout bags, ask for one so you can use it to carry your KFC bag more easily.

Best to make sure both hands are free to carry the food. No cellphone or keys in one hand nowadays!

I have a similar issue with Cineplex food-if I get a big drink and popcorn and candy, there are no trays. Only with the prepared food areas, does a person get a tray. Bring back plastic trays for popcorn and snacks! Cardboard tips.
