    Boy do we miss biting into juicy burgers, French fries, and whatnot during the COVID-19 lockdown. In order to ease the burden of “house arrest”, companies like McDonald’s, Greggs, and IKEA have shared recipes for some of their iconic products. But it seems that Colonel Sanders doesn’t approve when someone decides to cheat by buying prepared meals.

    KFC in the UK took a jab at the Iceland Foods supermarket chain after it advertised an alternative to KFC’s famous products, including chicken tenders, posters, thighs, and French fries. Iceland, which focuses on the sale of frozen foods, including prepared meals, posted the following ad on its Instagram:"Missing KFC? We’ve got the answer. Great value alternative to your takeaway favourites”.

    KFC’s response was not long in coming. The fast food chain posted a savage statement on its Twitter account in which it mentioned Iceland’s competitor, the retail giant Tesco.

    ​The sassy post received almost 15,000 likes and was shared by almost 2,000 social media users.

    Some netizens praised KFC’s response.

    ​Others found the post insulting.

    Some sided with Iceland Foods.

    ​Still others said how they miss KFC and urged the company to open stores for takeaway in British cities.
