I've never held expectations that fast food is "all-natural."
I'd swear I saw Santa coming down the chimney before supposing the "buttery" biscuits at fried chicken chains contained real butter.
But I always assumed the honey packets served along with the biscuits were actually honey.
Grabbing a bite at a KFC with family in Texas not too long ago, I gazed at the honey packets sitting on the counter and almost added a biscuit to my order, as I find the thought of drizzling the sweet, golden goodness over the white, fluffy flesh of a freshly cracked biscuit eternally tantalizing.
A few minutes later, we laughed as we realized the packets did not merely contain honey, but "Honey Sauce."
The ingredients read: High Fructose Corn Syrup, Sugar, Honey, Corn Syrup, Natural Flavor, Caramel Color.
At least honey is an ingredient in the honey sauce, which is more than can be said for most "maple" syrups.
Still...honey sauce...I can't stop laughing.
