Fried Chicken lover or not, its SO RIDICULOUS that I may have to order one myself! Ha do they come in 'plant-based' versions too? I'm not sure if the marketing folks at KFC are NUTS or GENIUS (or both) haa but here we go again! I mean their 'Fried Chicken-Scented Fire logs' were a huge hit, as were many of their other gimmicks (ala a massive chicken sandwich pillow, faux-bear skin rug with Colonel Sanders' head etc) but noooooow this! JUST in time for eh hem...Mother's Day...it's the bouquet she never knew she uh needed? ;/ KFC is offering a new floral arrangement, allowing customers to create a bouquet this is half flowers and HALF FRIED CHICKEN ;0
According to Food & Wine...its created in partnership with the flower delivery brand Proflowers, the Kentucky Fried Buckquet will be available to anyone who orders a KFC Sides Lover Meal via either the KFC mobile app or KFC.com from May 1 to 3. (No, this deal isn't available in restaurants.) Once an order has been placed, you'll be emailed a promo code to redeem the DIY floral arrangement directly from Proflowers. In it, expect to find 12 roses, a glass vase, a KFC vase applique, a card, and eight skewers for the chicken of your choice.
"Once assembled, the Buckquet can feature KFC Extra Crispy chicken tenders or chicken, delicately skewered and tucked into a vase alongside a blooming arrangement of a dozen multi-colored roses that will truly make mom want to stop and smell the fried chicken and roses this Mother's Day," KFC says. "A regular bouquet of flowers is a good gift for mom, but a Sides Lovers Meal and Kentucky Fried Buckquet is a finger lickin' good way to take Mother's Day from a 10 to an 11," !! Haa Nick Chavez, chief marketing officer for KFC U.S., said "With three sides, four buttery biscuits and the unforgettable — truly — fried chicken and flower table decoration, everybody is sure to get something they like to eat, and mom is sure to smile." ???!!! Ok?! Ha oddly enough, KFC claims that Mother's Day is one of the chain's biggest sales days of the year, moving nearly 400,000 buckets, and Mother's Day is also KFC's biggest day for online ordering and delivery...WHO KNEW! I'm feeling convinced by my own blog to now jump online and order for my Mom!!
Happy Mother's Day KFC fans! ;0
