In a move that may be your idea of heaven or the fiery pits of hell, KFC has released a bath bomb that smells like fried chicken. Yep, that’s right, you can now soak in the aroma of the Colonel’s famous 11 herbs and spices.
It’s not the first time KFC has blurred the line between beauty and the bird. In May last year, KFC Hong Kong took finger lickin’ to the next level when it unveiled its Finger Lickin’ Good Edible Nail Polish in Original Recipe and Hot & Spicy varieties.
Then in August, the Colonel unleashed fried chicken-scented KFC Extra Crispy Sunscreen on an unsuspecting public. And in December, KFC New Zealand released a limited-edition KFC-scented candle – because nothing says “me time” like the aroma of fried food.
But before you go run a bath and order a bucket, these novelty bombs are only available in Japan – and for a limited time.
KFC Japan has teamed up with Tokyo-based store Village Vanguard (also responsible for a range of ramen bath powders) to give away 100 bath bombs a day from now until November 22 via a Twitter competition *starts scanning flights*.
What’s next for the Colonel? KFC-scented fake tan so you can achieve that fried chicken glow? We live in hope.
