KFC’s Firelog Is BACK for the Holidays, and It Smells Just Like Fried Chicken

Have a cool (fried chicken) yule!

It’s got 11 herbs and spices, like the real secret recipe for KFC chicken. But instead of filling your kitchen with that enticing fried chicken aroma, KFC wants to bring it to your hearth. The beloved restaurant chain, known for its offbeat marketing campaigns (anyone remember KFC Crocs?), is back with an idea that’s been cooking for the last couple of months—a fried chicken-scented firelog.

We Can’t Think of Anything Cozier

That’s right! KFC wants you to fill your living room with the intoxicating, guaranteed-to-induce-comfort-food-cravings scent of Colonel Sanders’ perfectly seasoned fried chicken once again this holiday season. The 5-pound bundle is made to evoke that unmistakable aroma of KFC’s 11 herbs and spices, guaranteed to fill your living space with chicken deliciousness for 2.5 to 3 hours of burn time.

It retails for less than you’d pay for a 12-piece bucket of the real deal and is manufactured by Enviro-Log from 100% recycled materials. Forget cookies—we’d rather curl up beside a fried chicken fire while we tune in to all of our favorite Hallmark Christmas flicks.

Where to Find Your KFC Firelog

This year, KFC’s legendary fried chicken firelog is available at Walmart, both in-store and online, depending on your location. One bundle will set you back around $16, which isn’t much for the aroma you can practically taste from the fireplace. As silly as the concept sounds, these firelogs don’t last long, so if you find some, you’ll want to stock up ASAP. Last year, these disappeared in a matter of minutes—much like those KFC Crocs we mentioned earlier—so believe us when we say competition will be tight this year.

We don’t know about you, but we’re cozying up fireside all winter long thanks to KFC!
