stretch your budget with scott's chicken villa

1,439: VINTAGE TORONTO SUN AD OF THE DAY

Vintage Ad #652: KFC - The Midweek Budget Stretcher!
Budget stretcher? Sure. Nutrition? Debatable.

Growing up, Kentucky Fried Chicken was the only national fast food chain to set up shop in Amherstburg for years. Colonel Sanders stared at us from the orange-and-white boxes occasionally, or from buckets during large family gatherings. My fingers were crossed that the box arrived with a breast or wing (tasty) instead of a thigh (disgusting). While I haven't eaten a piece of KFC in over a decade, one of my guilty pleasures is an annual splurge on medium tubs of their macaroni salad and glowing green coleslaw.

A Finger-Lickin' Good Credit Union
The Amherstburg location was later converted into a credit union with one element the KFC lacked - a drive-thru!
