TheDailyMeal: Fast Food Menus: A Look Back

2 of 10

8) Kentucky Fried Chicken

"Colonel" Harland Sanders perfected his Original Recipe of 11 herbs and spices in 1940, and by the early 1960s the buckets full of fried chicken we know and love today were commonplace on the chain’s menus. On this menu we can see that buckets of increasing size and variety were available back then, with sides including potato salad, coleslaw, macaroni salad, fries, mashed potatoes, gravy, and rolls. And even though the fried shrimp dinner has gone the way of the dodo (along with the chicken gizzards and livers), and new additions like chicken sandwiches and pot pies now grace the menu, not too much has changed in the intervening years. And while the nine-piece bucket, which sold back then for $2.25, no longer exists, its closest relative, the eight-piece bucket, now sells for $12.49 on average.
