Those 11 people? 5 Spice Girls and 6 guys named Herb.
11 Herbs & Spices. I need time to process this.
It's the answer you've all been waiting for! KFC follows 5 Spice Girls and 6 Herbs to pay homage to the 11 herbs and spices used in the company's original fried chicken recipe. The top secret blend was kept under wraps until Colonel Sanders' nephew accidentally revealed it to the world in 2016.
People can't get over this clever move on the part of KFC's marketing team, claiming that they have officially won the Internet. Ford's Chief Brand Officer Musa Tariq even offered whoever runs the KFC Twitter account a job!
Regardless of whoever came up with this ingenious PR stunt, the world just can't stop talking about it. What a way to pay tribute to KFC's coveted recipe!
