KFC For Xmas?

Christmas special menu at KFC. What is it with Christmas and KFC in Japan?
Raise your hand if you've ordered or are ordering the Christmas chicken set. 

Do you know that a year before I was born, KFC came up with a catchphrase "Christmas = Kentucky" in Japan? All the dough poured into making the promotion a success in the 1970s sure had not gone down the drain since it seems like Christmas does means a Kentucky chicken in Japan. xD

Colonel Sanders must be so happy and proud, to say the very least.
I just hope nobody gets confused with Santa & Colonel Sanders. heh heh

  2. The Colonel is usually deck out in his Christmas gear around this time of the year. Don't forget the Christmas Cake as well, which is a sponge cake covered in whipped cream and topped with strawberries.

  3. When I was young many family would eat a whole chicken at Christmas evening. And would eat a big decoration cake. I think KFC would want the revival of chicken eating custom at Christmas dinner.

    1. OMG! KFC on board. The smell circulating in the enclosed space. o.O

      I guess it's supposed to be a nice gesture? hehehe

  5. Forget about the KFC. Where's the champagne and the chocolate cake? Oh, all right then, if you have to be a purist, where's the eggnog and the Christmas pudding?

    1. nobody ever serve me eggnog before. Would I get a taste before the Nara do? For energy? :-D

    2. Forget all of that. Give me a turkey with all the trimmings and that is a good Christmas dinner.

      For now, I'll settle for sushi. Why work hard to make something that tastes... okay... Had sushi last year, and planning to do the same this year.

    3. I know Disneyland serves turkey leg, all year round. ;p

      Sushi for Xmas. I like! :)

      But how dare you not bowing to convention! You are in Japan! o.O

      Hahaha

    4. I'm a rebel without a cause. :P

      Besides, why get chicken when I'm still trying to "diet". I'm failing miserably though. Need to go for a run but a common cold is keeping me from doing it.

    5. Sox should be more than happy to help with the workout. :-)

      Cold - blergh. Get well soon!

    6. Nah. He's more interested in sniffing out new things to eat as we go for a walk. Also marking his territory.

      Thankfully the cold is going away. Did a quick 2km run this afternoon before heading to work. Just got the final stretches to go.

    7. Lina, OK, I'll provide eggnog in Nara! Lots of protein to replenish those tired muscles!

    8. Dru, you're still obese after your Canada holiday? :p

      Seriously, though, hope you've already killed that cold!

    9. We don't have turkey for Christmas in South Africa. We prefer an ostrich stuffed with mutton and brandy.

    10. Have you heard of the Turduken? Turkey stuffed with a duck which was stuffed with a chicken. 3 birds in 1, literally.

      Cold has decided to go for round 2. What started innocently as just a sore throat got better, then came back for round 2. Got a runny nose and starting to cough. Just gotta rest a lot and I'll be fine. Should be healthy within the week... fingers crossed.

    11. The Chinese has similar dish too. Something like pigeon in chicken, chicken in duck or stuff. The problem I have with that dish is that the put the birds with the head intact. I eat fish head but bird heads are just too weird for me. ;p

      Ru,
      Don't joke around jungle women. It might get dangerous! Or we might be stupid enough to believe you. hahaha

      Dru,
      Oh dear. I'll cross my fingers for you, if it helps. ;)
      Take care.

      Delete
    12. People eat bird heads? Is there anything left in it? I have seen a chicken head on my plate before, but never thought of how to eat it. Chicken feet? Sure. Head? Can't imagine.

      Thanks for the crossed fingers. Won't help much, but the thought counts more than anything. :)

    13. Never tried chicken head myself. Maybe it's just for presentation though I do wonder why you need to see the chicken's eyes before you eat them. o.O

      How's the flu now?

      Delete
    14. I don't think you need to see the eyes, but it doesn't hurt. :P

      Flu? I hope it isn't the flu because I've been at work. I hope it is just a bad cold. No big change. Working makes it worse but had a little alcohol to help stop the cough. It works for a few minutes... ;)
