KFC Introduces Sunscreen

It's been quite the summer for KFC.

This summer, the fast food chain revealed KFC sunscreen, a meal box that charges your phone as you eat, and the unusual origination story behind the chain.

But they didn't stop there. Earlier this week, it was learned that KFC accidentally revealed the secret recipe behind their mega famous fried chicken.

A journalist from the Chicago Tribune was interviewing Joe Ledington about Colonel's KFC past. We all know the Colonel as the man with the mustache on the KFC logo. He just happens to be Ledington's uncle.

As Ledington was taking the journalist through their family's scrapbook, he spots a handwritten recipe.

The recipe looks like something you'd find in your family's recipe book.

Written in neat cursive is a list of 11 ingredients apparently used to make the chain's famous chicken. Though KFC refuses to admit it's the classified recipe, many believe it is.

We guess we'll just have to try it.
