KFC is changing its chips recipe after being widely criticised online.
The fast-food giant has revealed that negative responses to the brand’s fries on Twitter finally motivated them to up their game.
From Monday November 19, the Colonial will serve up “a thicker, chunkier and tastier spud.”
KFC revealed three tweets that inspired the move away from the roundly mocked side.
They were: “Dear KFC, No one likes your fries. Yours sincerely, the entire world,” @upgrade_music
“Why is KFC so good at chicken but so bad at fries?” @adumonline
I've got to say, KFC are riding solely on their chicken because Christ, those are crap fries.

Responding to the harsh criticism, KFC said: “Three tweets. Three emotional daggers. They took a matter of moments to write, but they’ve lingered long and heavily in our hearts.
“Instead of crying into our (soggy) fries, we’ve decided to take action. Radical, potato-fuelled action.”
The fried chicken fast food company claims to have embarked on the search for the perfect chip.
They said: “KFC tested virtually every type of potato and cut to find the perfect variety.
“As well as standing taller and wider (all the better for dipping with), the whole spud is used with the skin left on for a natural, rustic appearance and amazing taste.”
KFC claims the new fries have been a success when tested at restaurants across the UK.
