    When was there all you can eat KFC ?

    And how can we build a time machine to go back to this glorious moment in history?

    Please please please bring back the cherry coke. USA foods is getting way too much of my cash for the stuff.

    All you can eat KFC... sounds too good to be true.

    I have never seen an actual bucket of chicken from KFC though. Can you get them here?

    slowly but surely all the Coles supermarkets in my area have stopped getting the MiTan brand Prawn and Wasabi chips and filled their shelf space with I love Coles branded items (among other brands of foodstuffs, soaps etc.).

    I love Coles?

    more like boycott Coles branded items as they can blow it out their arse because they offer no choice (but isn't that what Coles / Myer is all about anyways? Eliminate the range of choice so customers buy your brands / only shop at your stores).

    About 8 years or so ago in Perth, 8 or so KFCs (only the larger suburban ones) were "all you can eat". They were stingey on the chicken, and went off at you if you just piled plate after plate of chicken, they expected you to have some salads too. Of course everyone went for plate after plate of chicken, so they got rid of it.

    I don't really miss anything, dr pepper, xlr8 and coke with lime as a mixer are the only thing mentioned here that I've even tried. Even then I only tried them once or twice and didn't think they were super awesome. They were OK, but I only had them one or two times anyway.
    Anything else listed here I have never heard of or tried at all. I'm one of *those guys* who never bought your favorite product, so doomed it to failure becuase we didn't buy enough, so they were removed from the market.
    One thing I'd like to add though is "sprite recharge", that got removed for the original "mother"

    As I mentioned above, get them to add the peri-peri sprinkles they use on the spicy chicken baguette for some zing...

    Just to annoy you guys about the HJ's angry whopper again, I saw it advertised at Pacific Fair in Surfers today :p
    It's like every HJ's I've seen since I read this thread has had them to purposely irritate you all :p

    Also Coke still makes Diet Coke with Lime, if that floats your boat (though diet coke tastes like rubbish imo).

    Although I'm not 100% sure, I think it may have been some sort of promotional thing for a period of time. Why the h*ll they stopped it though, is beyond me. The stuff was farking awesome.

    Myer is a seperately owned company to coles (now owned by wesfarmers).

    The coles homebrand stuff isnt bad if you just want a quick unhealthy snack though.

    I'm not complaining about the quality, just the quantity and lack of other brand choices.

    It wouldn't surprise me if Coles supermarkets will someday soon only stock exclusively branded Coles produce.
