Is it really Christmas if the smell of fried chicken isn’t wafting from the yule log? Well, yes. Of course it is. But that doesn’t mean KFC is about to give up on the dream.
On Thursday morning, the chicken chain debuted its very own KFC-scented Enviro-Log — said to smell like the Colonel’s signature blend of 11 herbs and spices once it gets going — and the item sold out within hours.
“At KFC, we have always been proud of our role in bringing loved ones together at the dinner table around a bucket of our world-famous fried chicken,” said Andrea Zahumensky, chief marketing officer of KFC U.S., in a press release ahead of the product's debut online..
“Now, this winter we’re bringing all the things we love – family, friends and fried chicken – together around the fire with our scented firelog.”
The holiday item – which is the product of a team up between KFC and Enviro-Log, and officially named the “11 Herbs & Spices Firelog” – promised a “hearth-warming and hunger-inducing” experience, according to the fast food chain.
The yule logs, which retailed for $18.99 at KFCFirelogs.com, were still listed as being "sold out" as of Friday morning.
Oh well. At least you can still spend the holidays in front of a non-chicken-scented fire enjoying your copy of the KFC-themed romance novella starring a rippled, sleeveless Colonel Sanders.
