Yikes! Gravy Shortage Hits KFC U.K. Following Chicken Crisis
Colonel Sanders must be knackered.
For many, there's nothing like the lip-smacking goodness that is KFC Original Recipe fried chicken with mashed potatoes and gravy.
But what if you take gravy out of that classic equation? Not quite as lip-smacking, huh? We agree. That's why we're sending our love to our friends in the UK and Ireland who are facing an all-out Gravy panic, as their KFC outposts face a gravy shortage. The grave-y occurrence comes on the heels of a fiasco in which hundreds of outposts closed following chicken delivery issues.

On Wednesday, a spokesman for the Yum! Brands (KFC's parent company) issued a statement saying, "Due to the ongoing distribution challenges DHL is experiencing, some restaurants are continuing to serve a reduced menu. We’re working as hard as we can to get this sorted out. We know that our gravy is a big favourite!”
Earlier in the week, the company also updated fans via Twitter that they're back in business on the chicken front, and working hard to get other ingredients back in their kitchens.
Here in America, we'll continue minding our own biscuits, but hope life is back to all gravy for our friends overseas soon.
