... but never, ever, ever, ever, ever order them on their own (or any other side!)
When you go to KFC, do not get hypnotized by its delicious sides and just order them with every meal. Make sure to only order mac & cheese and mashed potatoes as part of a $5 Fill Up. Ordering everything as a side is a rookie mistake, like trying to do a Friday New York Times crossword puzzle with a pen. Yeah, we can like KFC and still be highbrow!
Here's some boring math: One side is usually around $2.50 on its own (depending on where you live). But for around $5 total, you can get that same side with a drink, a cookie, and a main item! And how do you do that? You order a meal called a $5 Fill Up, of course!
You can also add bacon to anything
Bacon is a staple menu item at basically every fast-food chain. KFC has it too, despite not having a ton of bacon-filled dishes. But it's there! Next time you go, add bacon to whatever you'd like, whether it be a Famous Bowl or a Chicken Littles sandwich. Congrats on making your meal at least 45% better, according to a fact we just invented that we definitely can't back up with empirical evidence.
