KFC Is Offering The Fried Chicken-Scented Fireplace Log Again This Year

When it comes to holiday traditions, I think that every family has quite a list that they tend to follow. For some, it’s the Christmas music that begins playing sometime in October and they don’t turn it off until after January 1. Other people have a tradition of putting up the Christmas tree at a specific time of the year, or maybe it is going out shopping on Black Friday. It really doesn’t matter what your tradition is, it tends to be something that you follow one year after another. You may have gotten it from your parents and they may have gotten it from their parents but before it is over, it is going to be passed along to your children.

It seems as if we also have an interesting item to add to the list this year, the chicken-scented fire log. It is just one of those items that is unique enough to be popular but strange enough to be on the fringe. After all, what could be more interesting to add to your holidays than a nice log that you throw on the fire and it makes your house smell like fried chicken? It is known as the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Fire Log and you can find it at Walmart for $15.88. According to their estimation, the log is designed to ‘make your home smell like fried chicken and feel as warm as an Extra Crispy drumstick at the bottom of a KFC bucket of fried chicken’. I don’t know about you, but I’m a little hungry after reading that.

As far as the product itself is concerned, it is created from 100% recycled materials by Enviro-log. In other words, it’s less wasteful than a regular log and it will burn for up to three hours. If you don’t run out and get a bucket of chicken after smelling that for just a few minutes, you might want to have your nose checked.

In fact, the description also warns customers that it may make you crave fried chicken and that you shouldn’t put your face into the fire to smell the chicken. In order to get the fire started, you loosen the wrapper on the log, put it on the fireplace with the seam up, rip the seam and light the wrapper at both ends. What could be easier?
