The Kapiolani KFC is still selling dinner rolls. One worker said they have no idea when the biscuits will be available.

I won't eat at KFC until biscuits are available. In fact, knowing about this lack-of-biscuit situation saved me time. I went to Church's to pick up their honey butter biscuits to take to a potluck without having to stop at KFC first to find out they don't have any.

If grits are the "instant" kind (like mashed potatoes/oatmeal), they don't taste that good. KFC'd have to have a machine that stirs it constantly at the right time, and I'm not sure that there's enough of an audience to justify serving it. I love grits with cheese, but it's not a traditional accompaniment to fried chicken. KFC doesn't serve breakfast food--yet--if it ever starts, then I'd be very curious to see their version of grits on the menu!

Grits are more of a breakfast food. But I've never really come across them very often, even in Texas. I had them once on my breakfast tray in a hospital and didn't know what they were.

Kapiolani's KFC is still selling dinner rolls. I didn't ask and they didn't say when the biscuits will be back.

I voted in that poll. "Gross! And shame on them for selling such an unhealthy thing!"

Talking Re: KFC is getting cheap.

I remember trying to talk someone into trying grits, and they didn't want to. After several attempts to talk them into trying some, they said "Okay, I'll try one grit."



True story!

Biscuits appear to be back - purchased some @ KFC Don Q on Kaheka yesterday afternoon. Have yet to check out my "regular" stop on Kapi`olani @ Ke`eaumoku.

The Kapiolani store had them since Wednesday (night). I was talking about this situation to a friend yesterday over lunch at Popeye's (yeah, I know I eat way too much chicken).

One theory I purposed that during the biscuit shortage, the local KFC's managed to contact Love's Bakery to supply them with roughly the same number of dinner rolls they would sell if they had the biscuits. For example (the numbers are just top of the head, not the actual numbers that KFC uses) if one store sells 1,000 biscuits in a week's time, they would get 1,000 dinner rolls to cover the storage. However since some people refused to accept the dinner rolls, instead of selling 1,000 that week, they only sold 700 dinner rolls. Now August 24 comes around, the new shipment of the biscuit mix has arrived but the store still has 300 dinner rolls left, they are still good, so do you throw them out or do you continue to sell it?

They should (but won't) donate them to a soup kitchen and sell the biscuits like they advertise, especially since said rolls are keeping customers away. That would be win/win for everyone. But the day that happens will be a cold day in July in Texas, so....

Because it's not part of KFC's image.

You can eat KFC, text, and drive at the same time.

Will the line be as long at KFC for this new chicken as the line for Raising Cane when it first opened at University?
