Fried chicken over the years has transitioned from a simple dinner protein to, at least in my eyes, a major commodity. There have been great debates over who’s grandmother mixes the best batter, whether Popeyes is the best chain; I’ve even seen people get into physical altercations over some wings.
Well, finally there is a way to take our fried chicken obsession to another level. Monday, nearly 3000 fried-chicken scented sunscreen bottles were gone in the matter of hours in a promotion KFC held for their extra crispy recipe, officials reported.
The SPF 30 sunscreen is designed to give off an aroma of the famous Kentucky Fried once the heat hits the solvent. The fast food titan has even launched a website, showing diagrams of how the product works as well as testimonials.
This is not a new move for the friend chicken chain. Back in May the chain launched a duo of orange and beige mail polishes in “Finger Lickin’ Good” bottles which, weirdly enough, is only available in Hong Kong.
So how realistic is the smell? Well the along with the product, KFC issued a warning that follows:
“KFC® Extra Crispy™ Sunscreen is an actual product. KFC® Extra Crispy™ Sunscreen is not a food product. NOT a food product. Do not eat this product. Even though this product smells delicious, it is not delicious. The only skin that should be extra crispy this summer is on your fried chicken.”
