Adjust Comment Print

The Twitter account of global fast food giant KFC has more than 1.2 million followers, but only follows five English women and six men in return.

"Wait.@kfc only follows 11 people on Twitter: The 5 Spice Girls and 6 guys named Herb. 11 Herb and Spices?"

The account also follows all five members of the Spice Girls - Geri Horner, Mel B, Melanie C, Emma Bunton and Victoria Beckham.

Five spices and six herbs.

A very astute social media user may not have been able to find out the recipe, but he did find out why the official KFC Twitter account only follows eleven users.

"The person that runs the KFC account needs a raise", tweeted one user.

The men have one thing in common - they're all called Herb.

The 11 herbs and spices are reportedly salt, white pepper, thyme, basil, oregano, celery salt, black pepper, mustard, paprika, garlic salt, and ground ginger, according to the scrapbook.
