Interesting fact

The origin of the phrase “finger lickin’ good” is one that’s familiar to people in Western nations where the restaurant Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is popular. The phrase has been among the company’s top advertising slogans since it was founded by Harland David Sanders (also known as Colonel Sanders) in 1932.
