How To Turn Honey Into Poison

PopeyesHoneySauceOccasionally, as a guilty pleasure, I used to go to Popeye’s for fried chicken and biscuits. Not anymore.

High fructose corn syrup is the No. 1 ingredient? That tops even Popeye’s.

I tried eating KFC’s biscuits for awhile – because I drool over them, hot out of the oven – but first they switched the real butter to “spread” (what glop). I tried just eating them with honey. But then they switched to this.
