Chickenjoy is love; there’s no doubt about that. It’s the one thing that binds us all–lovers, ex-lovers, friends, workmates, families, acquaintances. Any Filipino who knows their stuff has fallen in love-at-first-bite affair with Jollibee’s famous fried chicken.
So we thought, hey, if it would help you get a better perspective on life, why not compute the value of different things in terms of the number of Chickenjoys they amount to?
To find out how much each Chickenjoy (no rice, just the chicken) is worth, we divided the price of an eight-piece bucket (P469) by, well…eight. That brings us to P58.62 a piece. We rounded the amount off to P60 for better computation, and here’s where all the number- and chicken-crunching has brought us.
