Funky Llama Pinot Grigio- Wine Review

Sampling the Wine on a Moonlit Night

Stopping at the local Wine's & Spirit's store the other day had me finding a new brand of wine to try.

Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) came out with a new sandwich that really isn't a sandwich on April 12, 2010. The KFC Double Down caused waves in the media. People started ranting over how unhealthy the sandwich was, how it was potentially lethal, and listed an article calling the sandwich the "a beast of a food product."
