Does somebody have an axe to grind with Hartz's Fried Chicken, or should its chicken be rechristened Chicken a la MSG? Consider today's comment of the day, from - yes - commenter Skip Foreplay, about one of Kevin Shalin's top 5 fast food chicken purveyors:

Having a father that owned a Hartz for 7 years and having worked in said restaurant throughout middle & high school I can attest the secret to their chicken is the marinade: 100% pure MSG. Colombian, imo.

We guess we'll never know. As a side note, maybe someone should do a study on the connection between high MSG consumption and poor bedroom performance...

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
