Kentucky: Steve Harrington loves KFC

Kentucky’s link with Stranger Things comes directly from season 2 of the show. In season 2, a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken was shown at dinner with Nancy and Steve. Unfortunately, that would have been impossible according to one person on Reddit. Why?

Well, according to them, the buckets in the scene say KFC and the characters even say “KFC” in the scene instead of the full name. But according to this Redditor, back in the 80s most people called the restaurant either by its full name or the “Colonel.” So, they’re saying that the fact that they called it KFC on the show, it’s inaccurate.

It’s hard to tell whether this issue true or not because the words on the bucket aren’t actually shown in the scene so you can’t see if it says KFC or the full name or something else As I was born at the end of the 80s, I couldn’t tell you either way, but I’m guessing the writers were going by what they remember.

Either way, watching Steve Harrington eat fried chicken is a delight we all need no matter if it’s historically accurate or not. And, let’s be honest, there weren’t exactly Mind Flayers or Demogorgons or Upside-Downs or Elevens (sadly) in 1984 either. I think we can give the show a break for a possible minor slip up.

So while the connection is small, Kentucky can still be linked to the Netflix show through their delicious fried chicken. Yum!
