Imane disagrees with the score for Kentucky Fried Chicken Extra Crispy Chicken Drumstick (2.1 oz).
Imane feels that the score should be D+ (27-34).
The reason is: I gotta say all of a sudden. This product doesnt contain any TBHQ. you rated the regular recipe D- and has tbhq. Id give this a D+ cause it has more good things than the regular recipe.

I compared that product to the original recipe drumstick (www.foodfacts.com/NutritionFacts/Chicken...umstick-208-oz/22791) to give you some information on why the original gets a slightly better score.
The extra crispy chicken contains hydrogentated oils, which contain dangerous trans fats. Even though TBHQ is controversial, hydrogenated oils are proven to be unhealthy, which is what put this product over the edge. However, they are only a few points apart and both receive poor scores due to the controversial and unhealthy ingredients they contain.

As always, thanks for contacting us!
