KFC offers fire logs that smell like … fried chicken

Ah, holidays. There’s nothing like relaxing with family in front of a warm fire — with the smell of fried chicken wafting from the hearth.

Uh … yeah.

Fast-food chain KFC has announced it’s offering the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog, which should make your family room or den smell just like the inside of a KFC.

The five-pound logs are available for $18.99 at kfcfirelogs.com — one per customer — while supplies last.

“Imbued with the unmistakable, mouth-watering aroma of Colonel Sanders’ secret recipe,” the site says, “the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog finally puts to rest the age-old dilemma, ‘How can I make this fire a hundred bajillion times better?’”

The firelogs, from Enviro-Log, are made of 100 percent recycled materials and can burn for up to three 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,” Andrea Zahumensky, KFC US’ CMO, told Business Insider. “Now, this winter we’re bringing all the things we love — family, friends and fried chicken — together around the fire with our scented firelog.”

KFC urges caution when using the firelogs. While the logs might smell great, they ask you “do not attempt to eat it.” Also, they suggest the logs might “attract bears or neighbors who are hungry.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
