KFC has Christmas gifts sorted

KFC has continued to roll out retail goods in time, and specifically for, Christmas. The company’s newest campaign features a bath bomb, a candle and a selection of Christmas ornaments for purchase.

We all know the feeling of wanting to come home after a hard day and relax in a chicken scented bath, surrounded by chicken scented candles while we stare lovingly at our chicken themed Christmas tree. While KFC has just made that dream a reality with its latest campaign.

For some utterly baffling reason, there are not many chicken scented luxury items on the market, so easy to say KFC has this corner covered. Even better yet, the candle itself was restricted to its New Zealand customers, meaning Kiwis have the advantage of being the only households to smell faintly of 11 herbs and spices.

The campaign’s bath bombs were limited to 100 copies only, all shaped like tiny chicken wings. Although uncertain as to what social situation is would be appropriate to smell like chicken, the owner of one of these rare bath bombs has the opportunity to discover the answer.

The new range comes just in time for Christmas, with KFC themed ornaments available to hang strategically on your scented pine tree. Mix it with the candle for an explosion of the nasal cavities, not literally, but metaphorically.  

Unsurprisingly, it was the New Zealand branch which took the initiative to add a bit of KFC spice to our holiday season.

The set of five ornaments feature a bucket of fried chicken, a wing, a drumstick, a pack of fries, and an incredibly creepy Colonel Sanders decoration. In case you feel like presenting these to an unsuspecting loved-one, the ornaments come packaged together in a handy gifting box.

Kentucky Fried Christmas

KFC marketing director Clark Wilson figures the ornaments will start some holiday magic saying: “Forget the mistletoe this year — these naughty and nice decorations are sure to make the magic happen when you grab a drumstick off the tree and hold it overhead.”

The decorations will be available at KFC New Zealand restaurants this December.
