No Chicken at KFC

My son stopped at a KFC last night because his girlfriend wanted chicken. The only thing they had was chicken pot pies. It seems strange that a chicken restaurant does not have fried chicken. Another time went to a waffle place that could not make waffles. I reminded them that waffle was in their name. It did not matter, they could not do it. I think the supply chain problem is getting worse. Every store we go to is out of things and we have to substitute something in its place. Are you finding any unusual shortages of basic items? Do you have a funny story about it? We would all love to hear it.

I don't eat fast food, I think I would only if there was no choice. Last week, many people were angry here because all the local Burger King restaurants didn't have any hamburgers. It's a burger place. I get it that supply chains are messy and all, but wow! Our KFC places have all pretty much closed because they were run so poorly, but I did read online that the only one within driving distance to me had several days with no chicken. They had pot pies and chicken livers, that's it.

@akalinus Well, chickens for KFC mostly come from Missouri and Arkansas. Arkansas was hit especially hard by the bird flu earlier this year. It's possible they're still getting their stocks of chickens back up. (That's also the reason eggs were priced so high earlier this year.)

@DaddyEvil The price of eggs is from price gouging. That is the only way to figure out why the price varies so much from place to place. I think they charge whatever they think they can get away with. I don't know what is going on with the chickens. It seems that there is usually an overabundance of chicken but not eggs. So strange.
@akalinus It happens.Here is a small samoss vendor.You can buy hot and tasty samosas from him.People mostly prefer to buy samosas from him.Once one of my friends from another city visited me .I wanted to treat him with the most tasty hot samosas from the vendor.But when I went to him;he told me that all the samosas he had prepared were already sold.
