It's been a while since Colonel Sanders produced anything to make the culinary world stand up and take notice, but his latest production, "KFC Bowl," reminds one that Sanders once treated us to "Chicken in a Bucket" and his all-time classic: "Special Recipe."Featuring an ensemble cast of vegetables, starches, and test-tube poultry parts, KFC Bowl is a junk food tour-de-force, an artery-hardening treat that'll tickle the taste buds of anyone who laughs coronory bypass surgery square in the face. Cobbled together from parts left over from KFC's "expensive" meals, The Bowl is like nothing you've ever seen before ... unless, of course, you've seen chicken, potatoes, corn, or cheese before.
What brings the project together, of course, is the bowl. Without the bowl you'd just have two sloppy hands full of mashed potatoes and corn that would slowly drip all over your shoes while burning your hands. Sanders has anticipated this problem by slapping all the leftovers into a hard plastic container that's as aesthetically pleasing as it is microwave-safe. Special mention goes to the lid, which caps everything off and prevents the saturated fats from sliding out of the bowl and into the KFC bag while you speed home because the drive-thru guy forgot to give you a spork.
One might expect the company that gave you Honey BBQ Wings, Popcorn Chicken, and Oven Roasted Twister Snacker to simply rest on its laurels and not take any chances. But KFC Bowl is one of the year's very best gut-fillers. It's slick, it's greasy, it's delicious, and it slides right out of your anus in less time than it took to shovel into your mouth.This production could put Ex-Lax out of business.
