The founder of the KFC, Harland David Sanders, used a recipe consisting of exactly 5 spices and 6 herbs. He never revealed the secret and it remains one of the best kept trade secrets in the world. Many have tried to decode the secret but no one has been able to do so till date.

Smartest man.

Seasoned marketing.

Well played.

Quitting Twitter.

Genius social media team.

Hilarious trending topic.
