Forget walking into your home to the scent of something baking, how about walking in to the scent of something frying? You know, like chicken?
That’s the reality one lucky New Zealand resident enjoys now, thanks to a limited-edition candle released by KFC.

Lucky Kiwis were able to enter the contest on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram by following KFC New Zealand’s profiles and suggesting merchandise the company should make. There were reportedly more than 15,000 total comments and suggestions on the social media posts.
Though such suggestions as popcorn chicken lip balm, KFC toilet freshener and KFC-branded bongs were suggested, Shiz Irani’s suggestion of, “KFC stamps…cause the Colonel always delivers,” won the much sought-after candle.
The company is still running social media contests for other prizes like hats and artwork, which are unfortunately not scented.
Interestingly, this is not the first time KFC has entered the candle world. In 2015, giftware company Kentucky for Kentucky released a Double Down sandwich scented candle. It seems the world can’t get enough of that finger-lickin’ fried chicken scent.
