KFC in Switzerland?

Just wondering I have never seen there is KFC in Switzerland? if no, what makes people here dislike it? or it was banned by the country? Has anybody seen one here or has it ever existed in this country before?

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

Err, for mechanically reclaimed, I think you're looking more towards McDonald's. KFC just treat them badly when they're alive.
I miss KFC so much...

I see your interests include cooking. If so, why would you want to eat KFC? Get some inspiration here. There's many more threads on "real" food on the forum, just use the search button.

Do they serve the traditional English welcome drink called "Vimto"?

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

my swiss husband eats buckets of their coleslaw when we visit Canada..
*barf*

When we were in Prague last year, he found a KFC and his face lit up like a friggin xmas tree...so, he orders a large 'slaw...
not even close to what the cdn version tasted like...to say he was disappointed would be an understatement.
Personally? the city where I lived, I will never get that smell of grease cooking while driving down Weber St. on a hot, humid day outta my nose.

Guilty as charged your honour!

I use to occasionally eat that sort of.... stuff.... and indeed it is very tasty and you get a great calorie rush. I just know now that for them to achieve that they have to throw in so much sugar and salt as well as all sorts of real nasties to keep the production costs down and flavour levels up.

And of course what the chickens have to go through (and what goes through them in thier feed) doesn't bear thinking about.

I am not much of a KFC freak, but used to love Taco Bell. Cant find any of those or similar joints here...none that are so dirt cheap!

Re: KFC in Switzerland?

The OP asks about KFC, and people start talking about food and chicken and stuff? Stay on topic people!

Damn, got a major craving for a box of some of the Colonels delectable, salty, fatty goodness now.
