If you’re hungry for the holiday season, Burger King and KFC are going head-to-head as they dish out free Christmas decorations. For those who still haven’t put their tree up and are looking for something to stand out from the crowd, don’t worry, Colonel Sanders and the Burger King have you covered.
When slices of pizza, cheeseburgers, and buckets of fried chicken are what you want adorning your living room this year, Deliveroo has a festive foodie treat coming down the chimney in time for December 25.
The Deliveroo app is giving out 1,000 adorable baubles based on your favourite fast food outlets. Each piece is apparently worth £34 and has been hand-painted. I imagine it won’t be long before these are popping up on eBay for triple the price.
It isn’t just Burger King and KFC that are being put under the Christmas lights. Deliveroo’s collection includes a tiny model gyoza from Wagamama, crunchy Cali roll from YO! Sushi, Pizza Hut’s cheesy bites pizza, the purple basil pesto Genovese from ASK Italian, Gourmet Burger Kitchen’s stacked burger, Byron Burger’s ‘All Hail the Turkey’ burger, a finger-lickin’ bucket from KFC, and the iconic Burger King Whopper.
You simply have order off the Deliveroo app from one of the participating outlets and see whether you’ve been randomly selected for a free bauble. With it being luck of the draw, don’t expect to have a full tree chocked with buckets of chicken an Burger King Whoppers.
It’s a bold move that follows in the footsteps of Subway’s sauce-filled baubles from 2018. Elsewhere, Just Eat rolled out baubles made from actual onion bhajis, however, Deliveroo wants a slice of the pizza pie.
Deliveroo’s Joe Groves says, “Christmas isn’t just about pigs in blankets and brussels sprouts and Deliveroo are here to prove it by giving our customers a foodie treat for their tree.
“We wanted to show off some of the most iconic dishes available from some of our best-loved restaurants, which are likely to get even Santa drooling as he puts your presents under the tree.”
To be honest, I think more fast food outlets should have ornaments based on their most famous dishes. It’s definitely better than a bland artificial tree with the same sad angel on the top.
