A KFC employee just showed how the chain makes its gravy — and TikTok is divided

A KFC employee is going viral on TikTok after showing how the chain makes its signature gravy. The U.K.-based worker, posting under the name cheddar4.7, shared a behind-the-scenes video of the process, leaving viewers deeply, deeply divided. In the clip, cheddar4.7 can be seen adding water to a container of “crackling,” which they describe as the pieces of chicken that come off as it’s cooked in the fryer.
