Canadians make 2,000-mile trip for Kentucky Fried Chicken

CORBIN, Ky. (AP) — Two thousand miles might seem like a long way to go for fried chicken.

Two men from Canada who took their sons on a journey to the original home of Kentucky Fried Chicken say it's a trip they'll never forget.

The Times-Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1CKSADI ) this was the third trip to the Harland Sanders Cafe and Museum for Brian Lutfy, one of the fathers who piled the four sons into a van for the 34-hour pilgrimage from Montreal, Quebec. His tales of earlier visits inspired the trip.

The friends left on Thursday, traveling to Colonel Sanders' birthplace and burial place before arriving at the Corbin restaurant Saturday afternoon.

For three of the sons, it was the first time they had tasted KFC.

And 10-year-old Jesse Janna said it was "delicious!"
