KFC Unleashes Fried Chicken-Scented Candle On Unsuspecting World

This is either totally ridiculous or incredibly awesome.

KFC Chicken-Scented Candle

Just in time for the gift-giving season, KFC is rolling out a limited-edition scented candle that gives off the unmistakable aroma of their namesake fried chicken. 

“What better way to light up your nights than with a limited edition KFC Scented Candle?” reads the caption on the chicken chain’s New Zealand Instagram account. There actually are better ways, but we will say it’s probably easiest way to make your entire house smell like a hot bucket of greasy KFC.

If you’re dying to get your hands on one, all you have to do to become eligible to win one is comment on another piece of KFC merch you’d like to see them manufacture. 

They’ve already got socks…

Earlier this year, they even peddled free bottles of chicken-scented sunscreen with this goofy-ass commercial.


“Suntan lotion always smells like lotion,”KFC CMO Kevin Hochman told Business Insider. “So we thought — why not make it smell like fried chicken?”

Why not, indeed. We have a feeling KFC-scented cologne is just around the corner.
