Decide for yourself, and if you're set on the latter, you can enter KFC's contest to win a year's worth of Cheesy Bacon Bowls. Follow @kfc_colonel and Tweet what it is you love about the Cheesy Bacon Bowl using the hashtag #BaconBowls. Sure, you'll take years off your life if you win, but it's wroth the glory, right?
