KFC Has Launched A ‘Gravy-Scented’ Candle And We NEED IT

I’m not even ashamed.


If you can’t get enough of that alluring KFC aroma of 11 secret ‘erbs and spices, the Colonel is now offering a gravy-scented candle.

Who wants “Ocean Breeze” or “Fresh Linen” anymore? “Dripping Grease Trap” is what your home should really be smelling of.

You might remember when Chewits released their own scented candles a few years back, but does this really compare to the waft of fresh gravy making its way around your home? No, I didn’t think so.

Since 1952, KFC has been offering that crispy chicken to hungry poultry lovers around the globe. Jumping out of the fire and into the fryer, KFC is attempting to outdo its previous venture of the KFC-scented bath bomb.

If you think this is some sort of April Fool’s joke come early, the official KFC Twitter showcased the candle in all its glory and is giving you a chance to win one for yourself.

If you still aren’t convinced, the description should have you licking your lips in anticipation:

“It’s all gravy baby. Nothing beats the sweet, soulful aroma of KFC gravy. So this January, why not fill your home with Finger Lickin’ good vibes thanks to our limited edition KFC Gravy Candle.”

KFC Candle

While KFC’s foray into home interiors is like a twisted episode of Changing Rooms combined with Masterchef, it’s a plan that is working. Whether you love or loathe the idea, these candles aren’t going to be around for long. KFC has only made 230 candles — which you can’t buy — and they’re sure to be a stinking showstopper for your front room.

It didn’t take long for the candle to light up the imaginations of the Twitterverse as fans shared their excitement and disgust in equal measure.





If that wasn’t enough savvy marketing in Veganuary, KFC has also unveiled its KFChill site where you can actually listen to the sound of fast food. Immersing ourselves in the sounds of the KFC Gravy Mega Box, the soothing tones include frying chicken, falling fries, and simmering gravy. Well done Colonel Sanders, you’ve outdone those Golden Arches on this one.
