If food could be labeled "kitsch," then this is it: A homogenized derivative of the art of fried food. Never mind that the South, Asia, and maybe Mexico have been preserved for all time in multicolored tubs, or that hand-rendered hues of crisp have been perfected to Golden Tan #5601. No other flavor-enhanced food makes you recall Piano Lessons. Hook them early, hook them forever.
Memories or no memories, some days all you want - or all you can manage - is fried chicken strips from your neighborhood franchise.
