KFC is bringing back its fireplace log that smells like fried chicken


Is there anything better than cozying up next to the fireplace on a cold winter night? Now, thanks to Kentucky Fried Chicken, your warm nights by the fire are about to get even cozier. For the third year in a row, the fast-food chain is bringing back its fireplace log that smells like their famous fried chicken.

It’s called the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog and it’s available from Walmart for $15.88. As the product description puts it, the log “is designed to make your home smell like fried chicken and feel as warm as an Extra Crispy drumstick at the bottom of a KFC bucket of fried chicken.”

The log is made by Enviro-Log from 100% recycled materials — which means it not only makes your home smell amazing, but it’s also less wasteful than the average firelog. Each log can burn for between 2.5 and 3 hours, so get ready to settle in for a night of fried chicken-scented goodness.

The one-of-a-kind item is also available from various sellers on Amazon.

If you don’t want to use the chicken-scented firelog right away, don’t worry. The log can be stored and has no specific shelf life. However, if you’re planning to store it for a while before use, the site suggests keeping it in a safe, dry area away from pets.

The product description also warns customers that the delicious-smelling log “may result in a craving for fried chicken,” and that you should not “put your face directly into the fire in attempt to smell fried chicken!”

To get the savory-smelling fire going, just loosen the log’s wrapper, place it on the fireplace grate with the seam up, rip open the seam and light the wrapper at both ends.

Of course, you can find other interestingly-scented firelogs at Walmart, such as Yankee Candle’s Balsam and Cedar Scented Firelog, which is fragranced like a fresh, wintry forest, and Pine Mountain’s Java Log, which is made from recycled coffee beans and releases “bright flames, crackling sounds and aroma of brewing coffee.”


Meanwhile, Home Depot has fire starters that are scented with cinnamon or apple, and Wayfair sells peat logs that bring the aroma of the Irish countryside into your home.

Would you give the KFC firelog a try?
