ONE of the few people who have a copy of Colonel Sanders' secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices doesn't want to eat KFC ever again, labelling it "dreadful".

Raymond Allen was a personal friend of "the Colonel" and brought KFC to Britain but according to The Telegraph, the 87-year-old says the company has strayed so far from its original concept it's been "ruined".

"We have got one where I now live, but I would not go in there. I don't use it and I think it is dreadful. The company has ruined the product," Mr Allen said.

"Instead of staying with one good thing that was sellable, they have tried to compete with the other fast food units. They should have just stuck with the chicken."

Mr Allen did not give his verdict on whether the chicken still tasted the same as 50 years ago when he first met Harland Sanders, but his wife Shirley said the couple had visited a local KFC about a year ago.

"We had the traditional original chicken but there were so many different products it was difficult to know what to order. I don't think we will go back," she said.

The couple sold their business in 1973 after working hard to make it a success in the UK.

"It was slow to catch on at first because people didn't know what it was," Mr Allen said.

"In the UK in those days chicken was something you ate for Sunday dinner. It was way before its time. We had to give it away to passers-by initially.

"We would only use fresh chickens, and they had to be two and a half pounds in weight. It was initially difficult to source the chickens because of the demand."

Mr Allen still has a personal, handwritten copy of the secret recipe, which he said he had locked it in a safe.

"I have no idea how much it is worth but I would never sell it."
