While New Zealand was digesting the news of John Key’s resignation, many people may have missed the fact that KFC New Zealand is giving away the sweet (well, savoury) smell of fried chicken to one lucky winner.
The company’s latest social media competition is for a KFC-scented candle and, judging by how many likes and comments the Facebook post as received, it’s safe to say it’s a sought after home decor product.
“What better way to light up your nights than with a limited edition KFC Scented Candle,” KFC mused on social media. “Keen? To go in the draw to win one just suggest another piece of KFC merchandise you’d like to see from us in the comments below! Winners drawn Monday!”
The competition ended on December 5, after running on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
The post received more than 15,000 comments.
“Are you serious? A KFC scented candle?!? Where can I get these? I want that constant gurgle in my tummy that I get every time I smell those herbs and spices. You need ideas for other things that are KFC inspired? Scented smellies to put in your undies draw, or some sort of edible massage lubricant would be great (a whole new meaning to finger licking good if ya know what I mean),” a user commented.
The winning suggestion came from Shiz Irani, who thinks KFC should release KFC stamps “because the Colonel always delivers”.
