KFC to Unveil a Chicken Corsage?
As if America isn't fat enough..... High school students will never go hungry at prom again with this limited edition corsage.
KFC is now offering a “KFC Chicken Corsage,” a combination of drumsticks and baby’s breath flowers, for a prom date with an appetite.
The fast food giant uploaded a two-minute YouTube video, which has been viewed nearly 200,000 times, on April 9 to introduce the new product.
“Love can be awkward,” KFC wrote underneath the YouTube video description. “Make it less awkward by surprising your date with a corsage that will make her eyes light up and her mouth water.”
The company teamed up with Nanz & Kraft, a florist based in Louisville, Ky., to help craft the product and offer additional flower suggestions to accompany the golden chicken corsage.
Customers can order the chicken corsage online – chicken not included.
The $20 order – plus shipping and handling – will earn customers a $5 KFC gift check to customize the corsage with Original Recipe, Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken and fresh baby's breath.
Students have already jumped on the crispy bandwagon.
KFC’s official Twitter handle has been retweeting students who were asked to prom with the chicken corsage.
“Thank you @kfc for asking me to prom with a chicken corsage. #putawingonit,” Twitter user @AlyssaEmilia tweeted on April 10.
Another Twitter user tweeted a picture of her getting asked to prom with the chicken corsage on April 11.
“So this happened yesterday… Got a #promposal with a chicken wing! Best thing ever. Thanks @kfc! #PutAWingOnIt,” Twitter user @LauraZembrodt tweeted.
According to KFC.com, only 100 chicken corsages are available.
“Just like the last piece of chicken in the bucket, when they’re gone, they’re gone,” KFC said on NanzAndKraft.com.
