The Marketplace Decides: KFC Ditches Failed Halal Menu

By Debbie Schlussel

I thought Europe was lost forever to Islam . . . and it’s, frankly, quickly headed there, despite this development.  But it’s always good news when the general public rebels against sharia and Islamic intolerance, and the marketplace responds accordingly, as in this case.  However, one day, the marketplace will be dominated by them, and as I’ve noted, it’s quickly becoming the case around the world, with Nestle and other powerhouses quickly responding to Islamic demands and restrictions on your food.

It’s nice, though, that at least at this point in time, the British marketplace says leh [Arabic for “no”] to halal.  And that KFC is listening.

KFC has scrapped its policy of serving halal food only in some of its takeaways [DS: British slang for carry-outs], following customer protests.

One hundred of the fast food chain’s restaurants removed non-halal items from their menus last year in an attempt to attract Muslim customers.

But thousands of regular customers complained, including Alan Phillips, who was furious when the Burton-on-Trent branch refused to serve him his favourite Big Daddy chicken burger with bacon and cheese topping.

He was told it was forbidden to keep bacon on the same premises as halal meat and he would have to travel five miles to the nearest non-halal restaurant.

Now KFC has admitted five of its outlets – including Burton – are reverting to standard menus following poor sales.

Another that will drop the trial halal menu is the Colne takeaway in Burnley, Lancashire, where thousands of people joined a Facebook group called No Halal at Colne KFC.

Takeaways at: Accrington, Lancashire, Old Kent Road, London, and Hyde Road, Manchester, as well as Burton and Colne, will revert to full menus on 19 July.

A spokesperson for KFC blamed low demand. He said: ‘We introduced our trial in areas where we expected a large demand for halal restaurants, and as with any trial, we continually evaluate results, and adapt as necessary.

‘There are always areas which are more successful than others, and despite positive feedback, a few stores haven’t met our forecasts, so for that reason, we have decided to stop trialling halal in five restaurants as of 19th July.

‘We are continuing our trial in other areas and are still offering halal in 96 restaurants, and will review the trial over the coming months.’

Around 100 of KFC’s 750 outlets in the UK have been included in halal trial, launched last April. . . .

The Burton store was originally chosen to take part in the trial because of the town’s high Muslim population.

The fast food chain insisted it was using exactly the same ingredients as before, except for taking pork off the menu . . . .

But KFC fans across the country called for a boycott, saying they wanted a choice in what they ate.

Leaflets made available to customers at Burton’s branch explained the old menu was to return because the trial ‘has not met our expectations’.

It went on: ‘For that reason, we have decided to stop trialling Halal in this restaurant with effect from July 19.’ The store added that its decision was based ‘solely on sales data’.

It’s always good to see the side of true tolerance (as in, not Islam) prevail. But don’t gloat because it’s a tiny win in a sea of mostly defeat at the hands of PC forces pandering to Islam.

And don’t forget that these corporations are prostitutes.  They perform the tricks the highest-paying john demands.  Tomorrow, that may be Islam.  And, then, KFC will switch back to the halal-only menu forever.  This is an ephemeral victory.

It won’t last.  As I’ve already noted, thoughout the world, we’re already losing on the food front alone.

***

For the record, I keep kosher and neither eat at KFC nor eat bacon, etc. But, unlike Muslims, we Jews don’t impose our beliefs on the rest of the world. We’re libertarian on that stuff. It’s Muslims who are authoritarian and extreme, forcing you to give in to their demands, fetishes, and peccadillos.

And don’t think Muslims always eat halal. If they can drink alcohol, they can eat pork and other non-halal fare if they think no one else is watching them. They just want the dhimmis to be forced to live BY their hypocritical rules!

The process is far along in Europe, but it has not gone as far in the United States. Small requests soon become demands, and those demands are often backed up with either implied or actual violence. It is a tactic that has been quite successfully used in Europe. The final result, as seen in countries, such as Iraq, Pakistan, and Nigeria, is the subordination of non-Muslim populations. After all of the extternal demands are met, pressures for out and out conversion to Islam will follow. Discrimination and harrassment will be followed by physical intimidation and for actual violence.

One small step for humanity! Hopefully the rest of the Muslim garbage will also be boycotted as well. One can only hope.

It’s all about the louies…the bennies…the greenies… the MONEY!

I don’t care if some restaurant owner wants to try some different menu… if sales suffer, they can then choose to revert back to the old menu.

It’s like the Kosher Dunkin Donuts, where everything is the same as the non-kosher but no meats. They are some of the highest grossing DK’s in the country. If they weren’t, they’d have ham back on the menu before you can say “time to make the…”.

So they tried halal and it didn’t sell. No surprise there, since most of the muzzies over there are probably on the dole anyway, and don’t have the spare cash to buy take-away too often.

So…

…KFC isn’t chicken after all!!

God bless the kafir who made this decision. It’s what Colonel Sanders would have wanted. After all, the ‘K’ stands for Kentucky, not Kuwaiti.

The Colonel must be spinning at 12,000 rpm in his hallowed grave. :(

Won’t be surprised if the English setup some sort of reimbursement to KFC to reinstate the halal stuff.

What a great way to keep muzzies out of your business if they only eat halal. Just keep a bag of pork rinds on the front desk.

I’d like to know where they go grocery shopping if they only eat halal. All the stores I know and go to all sell pork in one form or another. Does this halal stuff extend to where food is also purchased even if it isn’t consumed there?

    There have bene hallal butchers in a lot of places for at least 15 years. Even such places as Charlotte NC and Mobile Al. NOt everyone shops in supermarket.

KFC may have been trying to squelch the challenge from HFC – that’s Halal Fried Chicken – which I spotted in London some years ago. Of course, keeping bacon out of such places doesn’t make the food halal, any more than it makes it kosher. Halal has rules associated with slaughter and preparation which are derivative of Jewish dietary laws.

Jarhead writes, “What a great way to keep muzzies out of your business … Just keep a bag of pork rinds on the front desk.” Being Jewish, I’d rather put a bottle of Israeli wine in full view. (That earns me a two-fer.) Or, as I did in my old office – not to offend, just because I liked it – some artwork portraying the City of David in Jerusalem.

The citizens are realizing that they have been infected by a plaque of intolerant fanatics. Violent people who get away with crimes that no one else can. Because the government fears both these Islamic nut cases and stopping the flow. But it will make no difference.
America is in much the same position. 28% of violent felons incarcerated in the last 3 years are Hispanic immigrants, most illegal. And the Muslim percentage is way above the minuscule percentage of felons as a percentage of our population. But like Europe, our government cares more about appearances than protecting its people. Obama’s lack of interest is much like Bush’s. They could care less.

I just might go eat one of those 500,000 calorie Double Down Sandwiches at the local KFC to celebrate tonight.

To all concerened with kfc.. Reading this makes me more angry as i have said all along it just boils down to greed with you lot,, I ate kfc for 30yrs and all my family and used it 2-3 times a week but you will never get another £ of me or my families money because from the start you lot did,nt give too hoots about us british and what we stood for… I hope you lost thousands with your greed and cowardly ways and i will continue to put people off as i have done for months now because alot of people did,nt know about your halal crap but thanx to me and facebook alot more now. I will continue boycotting your scummy resturants and continue to educate people on what you are actually serving in your stores. Dont think because you have realised its mostly the british that eat your food and NOT the muslims you suck up to that we will all just forgive and forget because i will continue to ruin your name with all these links about HALAL meat and how you dont give a damn about the cruelity to animals and what they go through to make you scumbags rich. Have the bottle to put it on your adverts if you are not ashamed to cater for that barbaric cult they call a religion.

First of all this article is biased, and the ignorant people who assume islam is this “barbaric” religion go pick up a book. it has been proven by an EEG test that the halal way of killing is less painful than stunning.

Secondly halal and non halal food can be served in the same store place but cannot be cooked usng the same utensils.

Kfc can make the store half halal i.e. by selling and cooking the meat in a different part of the store or open smaller braches/stands for halal food.

Stop being so closed minded and show some kind of respect for peoples differences. Everybody wants that innate sense of superiority, if they didnt have their heads that far up thier arses they would know that no one is perfect and well all have strengths and weaknesses.

you’re a jerk! yup thats what you are… who of the muslims imposed anything here? KFC valuntary offered that service, exactly just like when mcdonalds doesn’t service cheese burgers for jewish communities!

I say you’re a hater, a freak, and hate promoter. Your commit says so.

KFC is very loyal and reliable fast food brand you can trust in terms of quality and hygiene.

“It’s Muslims who are authoritarian and extreme, forcing you to give in to their demands, fetishes, and peccadillos”.

But its okay to kill hundreds of thousands of palestinians, bomb their houses by force if they dont leave,kill children right infront of their parent’s eyes and NOT call it force right?

Halal is for the good of animals, to relieve them from the pain and suffering they have to endure when being slaughtered. Of course, you idiots wouldn’t know anything about being humane even to animals!!

HATER!
