    Hey Ryan,

    Do you think they will be doing the coupon thing or just handing them out? The news online seemed a little vague on that.

    The coupons were an epic fail.

    They did the one free piece offer before they did the two piece meal debacle. The one free piece offer ran really smoothly from what I saw, so this should be no different. Also, you do not need a coupon.

    These grilled chicken pieces are very small and petite. It’s not even worth paying for, imo.
    I’m not going to bother to wait in line for a small piece of chicken, it will make me look desperate.

    Seems to not be selling too well does it? This is the third time since it’s debut that they are GIVING it away?

    Doesn’t interest me in the least – I like Boston Market or Mimi’s – a little more expensive but so much better. 🙂

    Actually, the grilled is doing very very well according to numerous business publications. Yum Brands has seen strong sales since its introduction this past spring. I think it has more to do with getting a “free giveaway promotion” right, instead of what happened with the Oprah fiasco. I think it’s more of a PR push by KFC to make amends for that.

    Boston Market is getting into the game. $1 Real Chicken Meal Deal. Quarter white meat or 3 piece dark meat chicken served with mashed potatoes and corn bread. Valid 10/26 – 11/1.

    Just got my free piece of chicken; I went with a friend, and although there were four other vultures like us hanging around after our orders waiting for the free chicken, the people there were friendly about it and were nice enough to put two pieces in a bag for my friend and me.

    We got a pretty big drumstick and a thigh. The drumstick was larger than the fried pieces we had ordered, while the thigh was the same size.

    Very juicy, but almost saltier than the fried chicken. I suggest you eat the grilled first, since you’ll say, “Hey not bad,” before you eat the fried chicken and say, “Now that’s why I come to KFC. For @#)ing FRIED chicken!”
