KFC’s Fried-Chicken-Scented Fire Log makes your house smell like fried chicken

The good people at KFC have made a log that smells like fried chicken. Why are you tempting me Colonel Sanders? I think I will pass, each log costs $18.99 plus tax. I will invest in buying a bucket of fried chicken with that money. I do not think this log will comply with my city by-law fireplace emissions. Too bad you can’t make my fireplace channel smell like fried chicken.

It’s bad enough I was trying to get rid of the fish smell from last night. What’s next a McDonald’s yule log? All I need is a soundtrack of the kids yelling at McDonald’s. Nothing like having a fast food restaurant feel at home.

  • “May result in a craving for fried chicken. We know the fire log smells great, but please do not attempt to eat it.”
  • “May attract bears or neighbors who are hungry.” (And there I was trying to get rid of the local raccoon by firmly closing our compost bins.)*
  • “Please don’t put face directly into fire in attempt to smell fried chicken.” (That sounds like trouble.)*

*Side commentary.


The KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog was made in partnership with Enviro-Log. It’s made of 100% recycled materials and can burn for up to 2.5 to 3 hours. One log weighs 5 pounds and is $18.99. There’s a limit of one per customer, so this is the time to make all your family members buy one so you can have multiple. Because no way can one be enough.

Fun Fact: The Yule Log (The first TV fireplace) was created in 1966 by Fred M. Thrower, president and chief executive officer of WPIX, Inc.
