The weather outside is frightful and the fire smells like… fried chicken? Well, they will now thanks to the new KFC firelog. The firelog debuted on December 13th and sold out almost immediately.
Yep, you read that right, a chicken smelling firelog is a thing. Behold, “the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog, from Enviro-Log®.”
If you still can’t get past what this firelog actually is, according to KFC’s website, the firelog is “made with 100 percent recycled materials, the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog from Enviro-Log is dramatically less wasteful and significantly more effective at making your home smell like fried chicken than burning actual fried chicken.”
And those who snagged one didn’t mind the $18.99 price tag for a firelog that would make their home smell finger lickin’ good.
Boy howdy, did those go fast! Apologies to those who weren’t able to snag one, and to those who did, enjoy the best smelling fire you’ve ever smelled in your life!

For those that missed the gravy train… well, let’s just say they were disappointed. People took to twitter to express their sorrow.

You’re already sold out! What do I have to do to get my hands on one for the chicken-loving members of my family? I need to buy their love with chicken-flavored gifts and pleasing aromas. pic.twitter.com/uz2VAq4SvM

This isn’t the first time KFC has offered a unique item. KFC offered an “extra crispy” sunscreen that smelled like fried chicken in 2016, and that didn’t last long, either.
