This candle smelling like a KFC chicken burger is VERY popular

They sold out very quickly.

FORGET YOUR FLOWERY meadows – this unusual candle will bring a radically different scent to your home.

The Kentucky for Kentucky ‘Double Down’ candle is literally crafted from oil that chicken was fried in.

The company’s Fried Chicken candle first emerged in 2013, and earlier this month they brought out a follow-up of a candle smelling like the KFC Double Down burger. (That’s a burger with two chicken breasts instead of buns.)

The new candles went on sale on 8 May and were swiftly bought up by crispy chicken fans worldwide after articles like this:

According to Kentucky for Kentucky, the makers of the candle:

this Double Down candle starts off with a layer of Kathy’s real Fried Chicken candle mixed with bacon pieces, easing into a bacon-scented center, finishing off with another layer of bonafide fried chicken.

To make the fried chicken candle, chicken is fried in an all-natural soy wax… and sometimes pieces of chicken make it into the candle itself. Not a present for your veggie best friend.

Would you use this candle?
