I know some people who really love going to KFC. I’m not sure why – I can stomach it about twice a year – but KFC seems to be some sort of holy grail to them and they’ll eat there at least once a month. They tell me that the smell of a KFC makes them lust after it, to the point where they’ll completely avoid walking past a KFC simply because they don’t want to be stuffing their face with it all the time.
Yes, I know some strange people.
Therefore I have come to the conclusion that I probably shouldn’t buy them a Kentucky Fried Chicken scented candle for Christmas – otherwise they’d never be out of their local fried chicken shop!
The candle has been created by a company called Kentucky for Kentucky to celebrate the bluegrass state. You may think that it’s going to be some sort of artificial scent, but the creators actually fried real chicken in soy wax and blended it together with 11 herbs and spices. I’ll let the website make it sound a little more alluring;
Let the fresh, fried sizzle of savory golden goodness drift into your hearts and homes with one of our most delectable creations to date.
There are only 25 of the Kentucky Fried Chicken Candle available, so you’d have to be quick to snap them up! I’m not really sure how many people are going to want their home to smell like a fried chicken shop though (apart from the people I know of course). Surprisingly this isn’t the first food scented candle – apart from fruity smells of course – that are available to buy.
Our team member Anthony Langston will be pleased to know that you can get bacon scented candles. The smell of bacon cooking on a Sunday morning is indeed an alluring smell, but the fact that there won’t be any actual bacon to eat after smelling it sort of puts me off. If you’re American and fond of the fast food chain White Castle, then a burger-scented candle might be right up your street. Finally, beer lovers may appreciate a smell that reminds them of their local pub, but without the smell of bad body odour.
