Five Things - 2They just launched a new online store at KFCLimited.com that sells all sorts of KFC merchandise.

The store has products like socks with fried chicken drumsticks on them, lots of KFC t-shirts, a black string tie like Colonel Sanders wears and a bunch of framed prints of KFC stores and food.

It also has an actual piece of meteorite that’s carved to look like a chicken sandwich on sale for $20,000. There’s only one of those available, so if you want it, you should get on that.

In China, KFC is celebrating 30-year anniversary by offering customers a KFC smartphone.

KFC has teamed up with Huawei for a limited edition KFC Huawei 7 Plus, which comes in red with a logo of Colonel Sanders embossed on the back along with the year 1987—the year the chain first came to China.


Five Things - 3Researchers in Australia have engineered a new type of banana that’s orange because it’s packed with so much vitamin A.

They crossbred two types. One is a normal Cavendish banana, which is what you’re used to seeing in grocery stores. The other is a smaller type from New Guinea that’s extremely high in vitamin A.

A lot of kids in Africa die from a vitamin A deficiency, so they hope it could save hundreds of thousands of lives a year.

Most of the funding for the study has come from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
