Who would’ve thought that Colonel Sanders would be expecting such a breakthrough from his small roadside restaurant in North Corbin, Kentucky, selling fried chicken to now a rapid expansion across the globe? I agree with the growth as these Kentucky Fried Chicken are Finger-Licking-Good.
Recently, a Twitter user has yet gained another glorified stage for cracking the subtle message hidden by the Brand KFC in their official account. If you go through their account, you will see that KFC follows only 11 people on twitter. And that’s where this buzz is coming from.
Let me break it down for you.
Ring a Bell Yet? No? Keep reading.
You will notice a list of six people named Herb. They have nothing in common except for their first names. Why is this so important, do you ask? Well, the puzzle is only really solved once you take a look at who else they follow.
- Geri Horner
- Melanie Brown
- Emma Bunton
- Melanie C
- Victoria Beckham
Otherwise known as…
The Spice Girls!
KFC is pretty proud of the fact that they only use 11 herbs and spices to create their famous recipes. 11 herbs and spices. You guys, 5 spice (girls) + 6 Herbs= 11 herbs and spices.
This fact was discovered by a Twitter user, @edgette22, and it was only a matter of hours before it went viral. We have to thank him for this revolutionary discovery. It’s like our whole world has suddenly become clearer. Thank you, @edgette22, for your contribution to society.
.@KFC follows 11 people.
Those 11 people? 5 Spice Girls and 6 guys named Herb.
11 Herbs & Spices. I need time to process this.

I mean… I don’t know what @edgette22 does for a living… but he needs a raise too. Smartest man of the day.

the person that runs the KFC account needs a raise. I don’t care how much they make now. GIVE THEM A RAISE.

Here are some other interesting facts about KFC.
– The account seems to be run by Colonel Sanders himself, given the fact that he passed away like 36 years ago.
And if you’re new to the internet, I will let you in on a little secret. We love funny old people. I don’t know why, but we just do. Take Betty White, for example, the internet absolutely adores her. She is probably more famous now than when she was younger.
– They sent one of their burgers to space.
It is all very tongue-in-cheek, and you have to give credit where credit is due. Colonel Sanders and his team keep up with all the current trends. We have to respect them for that.
