Buckets of KFC chicken smuggled into Gaza from Egypt.

KFC chicken is finger lickin' good in Gaza. The problem is that there are no Western fast food franchises including KFC in this place. Solution? Smuggle KFC chicken from Egypt to Gaza using underground tunnels under the Gaza/Egypt border.

From the article below:

The idea to get the American fast-food staple into the hands of hungry Gazans came from al-Yamama, a food delivery service that opened in the Palestinian territory a few years ago, according to The Christian Science Monitor.

When employees last month had a taste for some finger-lickin' good stuff, they called a friend just over the Gaza border in al-Arish, Egypt, and asked him to order some up. He did so and sent it to Gaza through one of the hundreds of tunnels under the Gaza-Egypt border used to get goods into Gaza prohibited by Israeli restrictions, things such as weapons and cars.

The transfer of fried chicken from Egypt to Gaza took three hours, not exactly fast food, but good enough for a territory where there are no Western fast-food franchises, according to the Monitor report.

Their appetites sated, "We asked ourselves, 'Why don't we provide this service for Gazans?' " Mohammed al-Madani, the financial manager of al-Yamama, told the Monitor.

A bucket of chicken goes for about $30 in Gaza, about three times the price in Egypt, according to the media reports. Besides the chicken, fries, coleslaw and apple pie are available, according to the Times.

And even if the chicken's a bit cold and the fries somewhat soggy, customers apparently aren't complaining.

Eating KFC "has been a dream," Rafat Shororo told the Monitor. "And this company has made my dream come true."

Go Canucks go!
