What's on the Menu in Tupelo, Mississippi - Birthplace of Elvis

Mississippi is considered the most obese state in the USA (according to the rational rankings).

Memphis, Tennessee is 10 miles from Tupelo, Mississippi. Drove through it to get to Memphis. When we drove pass this KFC in Tupelo I could not resist taking a photo of the sign:


I do not know about you, but I have never heard of KFC running a national campaign to promote Kentucky fried gizzard or liver.

When I was a kid, I'd collect packages of gum that came with stickers for spoof products humorously attributed to real companies. I can still remember the one for KFC. It was Kentucky Fried Chipmunk, finger lickin' crud. Now I am wondering: If Mississippi KFC sells gizzard and liver, does Kentucky's KFC have chipmunk or opossum on their menu?

Have you seen strange regional food items on the menu of a national chain in your travels?

I think I have seen liver on KFC sign in Indiana too. I will start watching.
