Chicken chattin' CHANGED ITS NAMES, BECAUSE OF A CHANGE IN INGREDIENTS. Umm.. you know the ‘C’ in KFC still stands for chicken, right? Yeah, this one doesn’t even make that much sense. There are some who think that we’re not allowed to use the word “chicken” anymore because of a false rumour that we use genetically modified chicken. Are you ready…? Chicken, chicken, chicken. Yep, definitely not true. In fact, we probably changed our name to KFC because it’s shorter and easier. Imagine trying to say “Man, I could really go for some Kentucky Fried Chicken right now” on an empty stomach!
