    According to todd wilbur, its salt, pepper, MSG snd a pressure fryer. Pressure fryers are expensive when you can find them. They go through gaskets fast as well.

    I saw a show years ago where they investigated this. A former business partner of the colonel said the secret was a specific type of black pepper called tellicherry. The taste tests they did with the finished product seemed to confirm this.

    They can put trace amounts of any spices in; it's not what makes it KFC. The pressure fryer (Henny Penny), pepper,  and the MSG are the main components, and all you should care about.

    Shucks. I was hoping to dig up a copy of a cartoon I saw many years ago. It show a very unhappy Col. Sanders getting dragged off by the police, and an employee saying "I guess they figured out what some of those secret herbs are." Might have been in a Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers book.
