Some people like their homes to smell like flowers and herbs and other natural scents. Other people prefer their house to be filled with the scent of a home cooked meal, the smell of food wafting into your nose when you walk in. If you resonate more with the latter, you might be interested in a new kind of scented candle that can make your home smell like mom was just in the kitchen whipping up something delicious.

KFC is testing out a new type of candle that—wait for it—smells like fried chicken. If you’re a fan of the fast food joint, you’ll want to get your hands on one of these limited edition candles, especially if you’re not much of a home cook yourself.

Unfortunately, procuring one of these unique food-scented candles may not be as easy as it seems. To get one, you must go over to the KFC Facebook page and enter to win one by commenting on their photo and suggesting another piece of KFC merchandise you’d like to see from them. From there, KFC will pick their winners on Monday, December 12. According to their Facebook post, you can follow them on Instagram and Twitter for more chances to win. Over 15,000 people have already entered on the Facebook page, so it seems like the candle could be a big hit.

This isn’t the first fried chicken-scented promotional item from KFC. Last summer they released a limited batch of fried chicken-scented sunscreen that quickly sold out.

It looks like more merchandise could be in the works from this fast food company since they are asking for suggestions. For now, you’ll just have to cross your fingers and hope you win one of those limited candles. A rose-scented home is nice and everything, but just think of how much better it could smell with the scent of fried chicken in the air—especially when you don’t have to do all the work to get the aroma.
