    NYT: In Kentucky, Fried Chicken History

    Admittedly, I do not think I knew "Duncan Hines" was a real person until I read this...

    :)

    Interesting history and I have read a lot of stories surrounding the Colonel, albeit I'm not a big fan of KFC.

    I've seen the museum on a food/ travel show or two in the past. I'd definitely love to check it out eventually!

    Oh right, did KFC at one point in the last few years (either in the states or abroad) change it's name to Kentucky Grilled Chicken? Seriously!

    KFC tastes fine for HK outlets, but they are awful for Canadian and New Zealand branches.

    went there about 15 years ago. very clanish town. got some stares and odd looks with a black guy in our group. cool place, but definitely only worth going if you're traveling between lexington and knoxville.

    Seriously? Corbin is a very friendly place. I hate to say it, it was probably a result of having a black guy with you. It is hopefully better now (haven't been in a few years) but when you start heading in that part of the state there is a lot of racism.

    I got so excited when we got off the Corbin exit as a kid because it meant Cracker Barrel! The writer of the article should have stopped there, or anywhere else in KY, so he/she would have known better than to write "fried country ham". If you haven't tried country fried ham you are missing out of a KY staple!

    I'm sure it is friendly, but that should be reflected on to all races.
