It completely sucks when one of your favourite restaurants decides to discontinue your favourite menu choice, but the story below gives you hope that you might actually be able to do something about it when that happens.

A guy called Farhan from Singapore was particularly upset that KFC had decided to discontinue the Hot Devil Drumlets and so decided to take literally every opportunity he could to let them know about his dissatisfaction. This meant tweeting them pretty much every day as you can see below:
u know what's even hotter? Hot devil drumlets.

Normally I wouldn’t expect that to work even slightly, but someone at KFC must have been paying attention to Farhan’s heartache because they actually reinstated the item on the menu and then contacted him directly so he could be the first person in the country to sample the return of the drumlets:
Wow. Now that really is some great customer service there. Hope they were everything that Farhan was looking for from them, although it’s not really clear if they’re coming back to the menu permanently or just for a limited amount of time. Let’s hope it’s the latter for Farhan’s sake.
Now all we really need is for these Hot Devil Drumlets to be available over here in the UK. Anyone want to volunteer to tweet KFC every day for a year until they are? Guaranteed results you know.
For more KFC, check out this pizza version of the Double Down. Probably need that to come out in the UK as well to be honest. Get tweeting.
