retail news in context, analysis with attitude

USA Today reports that KFC has managed to get a small sales bump from its controversial ad campaign that maintains that fried chicken is health food- or, at least that fried chicken is lower in carbohydrates than many other fast foods.

This claim has been derided by many nutritionists and is under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

Still, parent company Yum Brands reported a one percent same-store sales increase in November, the first such increase it has seen since April.
KC's View:
So who do you want to give the last word to here?

Phineas Barnum? ("There's a sucker born every minute.")

Or Abraham Lincoln? ("You may fool all the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all the time.")

You choose.
