  • In 1930, in North Corbin, Kentucky, one man had a dream,

  • and that dream would become the greatest fried chicken franchise in America-

  • nay, the WORLD. It's eaten in Japan for their Christmas dinner!

  • Santa Claus hops down the chimney with a big old bucket of chicken. (chicken clucks)

  • Today, I will attempt the impossible

  • and I will taste EVERYTHING that KFC serves at its fine chain establishment.

  • Whoaaa, it smells great in there! (What have you gotten yourself into)

  • (Try Guys theme music)

  • (chicken clucks) (singing) La la la

  • I don't have every single thing you could purchase by line, but everything they sell is represented on this table.

  • Sometimes it's in three-piece meals, sometimes in a bucket, you get it. We don't need to double dip here.

  • It's improper when eating fried chicken (very funny).

  • I don't have a bucket today, because this food actually already comes in buckets, so there's no need.

  • How about we start with something they've been selling for a long time, but I've never had.

  • The pot pie.

  • Warm yourself from the inside.

  • Ohh, cryptic~. You're about to embark on a journey that will end with you eating a handmade pot pie.

  • Won't the journey begin with me eating a pot pie?

  • Also, I'm not drinking a sweet tea, I'm drinking a-- what is it?

  • Nothing says Kentucky like mango fiesta.

  • Oh God!

  • Also, we're gonna rate all this food on how finger-licking good it is. One finger-lickin' or five finger-lickin'?

  • Wow, I'm about to cry, it's so good. I am not even using my fingers this is ten fingers good.

  • There's so many fingers.

  • It's like I'm making out with the colonel. I don't think Kentucky would approve of that.

  • Wow there's so much text on this box. And it's so funny, it says "dreams do come true." You're right!

  • They're so funny, more like Kentucky Fried Chuckle! (chicken clucks)

  • "Enjoy my freshly prepared food then hey, free box!"

  • This is chicken... wings? (chicken clucks. again)

  • They sell chicken wings?? (bell dings)

  • Why wouldn't they? It's the same thing. Ooh they're a lil spicy, pretty tasty. Let's crack open this ranch.

  • (sound of wrapper opening) A-S-M-R-A-N-C-H

  • Woooah! We're Marilyn Monroe-ing!

  • That's a nice amount of heat, I'm sweating a little bit. Like three and a half finger-licking goods.

  • We got another box! "Made with delicious chicken but named after popcorn, that's marketing gold, folks."

  • K-F-Chuckle gets me again!

  • This one tastes the most processed.

  • They have this finger-licking good sauce, I have no idea what it is. Oh my God!

  • Wow, what a complex sauce.

  • They're not bad, I'm sure kids like these and they're a great vehicle for sauce.

  • Ladies and gentlemen, everybody's favorite Zach Kornfeld!

  • Zach: Am I the first guest? Keith: You are the first guest.

  • Zach: Wanna do our theme song? Keith: Yeah.

  • Zach and Keith: (singing) Here comes the man in black~

  • Zach: That's not our theme song!

  • Zach and Keith: (singing) K-F-C la la la!

  • Zach: What's happening over here? Keith: (stammering) It's just-it's just-it's just-it's just-

  • Zach: It's just been happening? Keith: Even the table gets bloated when you eat fried chicken.

  • Keith: Try the sauce, you're about to freak your butt apart.

  • Zach: My butt! Stop it! Keith: See? See?

  • Keith: Potato wedgies.

  • Keith and Zach: Cheers.

  • Keith: That's really good. Zach: Oh, yeah.

  • Keith: Yeah great crispiness. Zach: Oh, yeah.

  • Keith: The potato is super fluffy inside. Zach: Oh

  • Keith: My God.

  • Zach: I think it's worth going to KFC just for this. Keith: Here, try this drink.

  • Zach: What is happening!? Keith: It's a real drink they offer.

  • Zach: Bye. Keith: Bye!

  • Zach: Thank you! Keith: You're welcome!

  • Next! Ooh! What do we got here?

  • Original. Recipe. This here folks is what started it all.

  • Mmm very fatty, look at that dark meat just oozin'.

  • And try this drum in here just to check out the drum. Oh, yeah, (chicken clucks) four finger-lickins.

  • Oh my God! It look, it's the food for children! So we got a little chicken little sandwich, some mac and cheese,

  • squeezable apple sauce. It's been in the same box. So guys this apple sauce is a hundred degrees.

  • It's better than the drink.

  • I need the uh- the spork.

  • Oh, can we look at this? Hold on-

  • See what I'm seeing? They changed it, it's like a rectangular foon. Things change.

  • It does the job. It's not amazing, but it's not bad at all.

  • One to three fingers, depending on how much you like mac and cheese.

  • The real thing that matters here is the chicken little. This is a little chicken sandwich for children.

  • (screams)

  • I wanna be honest, I would recommend you not get this.

  • I think if you're taking your kid to KFC just buy 'em a bucket, who are you kidding?

  • Yeah, this is no bueno.

  • I'm sorry, I'm stuck in Taco Bell land.

  • Oh, that is not brisk, baby.

  • Sandwiches!

  • KFC's got a lot of 'em and I've never had any of 'em.

  • Well, I have one of the old slider ones and I did have one of the kids menu a moment ago.

  • But other than that, I've never done it.

  • Feel like you have to pit these sandwiches against one another,

  • How could I do that alone?

  • I would only be able to have a little chicken competition with the one and only, Chris Reinacher!

  • Chris: Heeeeey!

  • Chicken watch baby! Keith: Well, we don't know if we have that IP back baby!

  • Keith and Chris: Chicken Sandwich Showdown!

  • Chris: 2k18

  • Chris: What's your rubric for sandwiches?

  • Keith: Moisture of the chicken, Chris: Okay, moisture.

  • Keith: Crispiness of the outside,

  • Chris: Of- you're talking- of the chicken itself. Okay. Keith: Of the chicken, not the bread.

  • Keith: the mouthfeel.

  • Chris: Mouthfeel is a- is a really good category. Keith: Yeah, it's like about-

  • how does it feel in your mouth?

  • Colonel's Crispy Chicken Sandwich.

  • Actually looks like a giant version of the kids sandwich.

  • Should we Lady in the Tramp it? How should we do this?

  • Chris: It's fine. Keith: Bland.

  • Chris: I'm not licking any fingers.

  • Georgia Gold Honey Mustard Barbecue.

  • Barbecue just means sauce, right? Because there's no barbecue back there.

  • Keith: No. Chris: I don't know what a Georgia chicken is.

  • Keith *attempting a Southern accent*: It's a chicken that talks like this, Chris~.

  • Keith: The chicken breast on this one was better, it was more moist. Maybe it's because it had sauce on it?

  • Chris: I feel like I'm so used to tasting good chicken with you though that I'm just gonna be

  • negative this entire taste test. Keith: Well, try not to be.

  • Chris: I tried hard and I like the packaging.

  • Keith: Wow, what the f*ck! Chris: Wow!

  • Keith: Oh, wait a minute *makes buzzer sounds* Chris: Time out.

  • Keith: I've read about this, I didn't think we'd get it because for a brief sit in the summer in some places

  • they had the Pickle Fried Chicken. We got it guys. We got it. This is the Pickle Chicken from KFC.

  • Chris: In the-

  • Chris and Keith: Chicken Challenge

  • Keith: No, sandwich.

  • Chris: Chicken Sandwich Challenge. Keith: Chicken Sandwich Showdown.

  • Keith: Showdown.

  • Chris and Keith: Chicken Sandwich Showdown! 2k18

  • Keith: Wow, you really gotta flex that jaw to get in there, huh?

  • Chris: You just like barely have to open your mouth.

  • Keith: This is sort of what they replaced the Double Down with.

  • Chris: Double Down was so aggressive.

  • Keith: I've never gotten heartburn so fast in my life, but it was delicious.

  • Oh, the sandwich is bailing!

  • Chris: It's fine, it's boring, also like you don't want to go through this in the middle of the day.

  • Let's be honest with ourselves. W-What? Why are you- what are you doing? Why'd you order this?

  • Alright, what are we doing now?

  • Keith: Smoky Mountain Barbecue! Chris: Smoky Mountain Barbecue.

  • Keith: There we go. That looks like a different sandwich. Chris: Yeah!

  • That's fancy barbecue sauce right there.

  • That one's in the lead for me, I think that's definitely, of the sandwiches especially, a five finger-licking good.

  • Of the menu as a whole, probably a four finger-licking good.

  • Chris: Wow! Thank You.

  • Keith: Nashville Hot!

  • I just love smelling sandwiches.

  • Chris: Okay.

  • Keith: Whoa! Chris: Got a immediate kick.

  • Keith: Wow! Chris: That's the most interesting thing we've eaten

  • all day! In the...

  • Keith and Chris: Chicken Sandwich Showdown

  • Keith: Woo, the scovilles on that are up there!

  • That is the hottest fried chicken sandwich I've ever had from a fast food place.

  • Chris: From a fast food place. Keith: By far.

  • Oh God, give me this terrible drink. Chris: I dig it though.

  • Keith: It's a five (chicken clucks again.. i'm not writing this anymore) finger-lickin' good. It's really delicious.

  • Chris: It hits your spice buds immediately.

  • Keith: Hits those spice buds immediately.

  • Chris: Spice buds! Keith: Spice buds!

  • Keith: Right now, I don't think anything is gonna beat the Nashville Hot.

  • Looks like we got another stupid big f*ckin sandwich.

  • Chris: Americans like more.

  • Chris: Oh, am I suppose to eat it? Keith: Uh, huh.

  • Chris: All right. Keith: Bit my finger a little bit.

  • Keith: This one tastes better than the pickle one.

  • I think it actually is better to have two plain chicken breasts than pickle breasts.

  • I'm done with this sandwich, it's stupid, it's not very good. It bores me.

  • This is the chicken tender sandwich thing that they get for children. I've already eaten it. You can eat it.

  • Chris: I don't like this idea. Keith: I ate it in the kids meal.

  • Chris: No. Keith: It's boring. Yeah, it sucks. Whoa!

  • Chris: Sorry. Keith: Let's just at least keep it,

  • cuz' we might be able to it to feed somebody.

  • So at the end of the Chicken Sandwich Showdown 2k18, who won, Chris?

  • Chris: Nashville Hot Chicken, hands down.

  • Keith: Second place? Chris and Keith: Smoky barbecue.

  • Keith: Then the original, then the Georgia Gold, then the pickle thing,
