KFC is savagely critiquing social media users' attempts at recreating the Colonel's famous 11 herbs and spices.
Everyone has been in isolation for a couple of weeks now, and people are really beginning to miss their favourite fast-food restaurants. Instead of waiting it out, they're trying their hand at recreating their beloved takeaways at home.
Ambitious home-cooks have been taking to Twitter to show off their impressive work, utilising the hashtag #RateMyKFC. Then, the official UK KFC Twitter account began to do as requested and rate the public's chicken - and they did not hold back.
Reply below your best homemade KFC with #RateMyKFC and I’ll score it out of 10.— KFC UK & Ireland (@KFC_UKI) April 6, 2020

British Kentucky Fried Chicken shared pictures of people's chicken, along with hilarious and savagely honest feedback on their replication success.
"This is the saddest thing I’ve seen and I’ve watched the Futurama episode were the dog waits outside for Fry. 3/10," they wrote about one limp-looking chicken burger.
In another Tweet, poorly-fried chicken was compared to uncomfortable shoes: "I wore my new Dr Martens for the first time today to pop to the shop. That was less painful than looking at this. BBQ sauce touching the mash?! Gravy needs a few thousand extra granules, too. Chicken looks decent though. 4/10. #RateMyKFC."
We’re Kentucky FRIED Chicken, not Kentucky cook it in a lukewarm bath for 9 minutes Chicken. Mash looks nice though.— KFC UK & Ireland (@KFC_UKI) April 6, 2020
You also forgot the hashtag which loses a point. 2/10#RateMyKFC https://t.co/u5SCdJ1zKd
KFC wasn't afraid to get personal, either. Even the best chicken had points deducted for the chef being overly keen with submissions and for using Nandos sauce.
Dylan. I know you're proud of this. I can tell by the three times you've sent it in. I'll be honest, it looks bloody tasty...BUT, the coverage is more patchy than Joseph's technicolor dream coat. That means it's a 7.5/10 from me #RateMyKFC https://t.co/ziNTsznc3u— KFC UK & Ireland (@KFC_UKI) April 8, 2020
The account is still accepting homemade chicken submissions but has shared the disclaimer "I'm more Ramsey than Berry". So be warned, your fried chicken might get roasted.
