There’s nothing like the holiday scent of… fried chicken.
And it looks like thousands agreed. KFC released a limited-edition firelog that smells like its famous fried chicken — and it sold out in hours on Thursday.
The “11 Herbs & Spices Firelog,” went on sale on KFCfirelogs.com for $18.99 (which included tax, shipping, and handling).

推出这款Enviro-Log®的“11 Herbs & Spices Firelog”是能让柴火闻起来不太像火而更像炸鸡的最好方法，今天就来http://kfcfirelogs.com带走你的木柴吧。
A firelog is a manufactured log constructed to be used as wood fuel. Firelogs are designed to be inexpensive, while being easier to ignite, and burn longer, and more efficiently than firewood. Firelogs are traditionally manufactured using two methods.
The first uses only compressed sawdust and the second uses sawdust and paraffin, which is mixed and extruded into a log shape.
The extruded firelogs are individually wrapped in paper packaging which can be ignited to start burning the firelog as the paraffin is readily combustible.
“Imbued with the unmistakable, mouth-watering aroma of Colonel Sanders’ secret recipe, the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog finally puts to rest the age-old dilemma, ‘How can I make this fire a hundred bajillion times better?'” the fast-food chain said on their website.
这家快餐连锁店在网站上说：“肯德基的11 Herbs & Spices Firelog用的是味道强烈的令人垂涎欲滴的肯德基秘密配方，最终解决了这个历史难题‘我怎么能使火好100倍？’”
The savory firelog was created by Enviro-Log, a Yule log manufacturer, and made of 100 percent recycled materials. “It is the result of countless hours of research and development, all done over the last couple of months since we had this idea,” said KFC.
Not surprisingly, the firelog was a hit. Users quickly shared their delight/confusion in the chicken-scented creation and suggestions for its use:

Welp I know what I’m gift wrapping for the work Christmas gift exchange! Nothing like the fresh scent of high cholesterol and chest pains.

Take these with you camping to spice up your night with a bear attack.
The firelog can burn up to three hours and unlike real chicken, it doesn’t expire and it has no shelf life. KFC did warn buyers to “please do not attempt to eat it,” and cautioned campers that it “may attract bears.”
If you were late to the chicken party and didn’t get a firelog this year, we suggest just lounging by the fire with a bucket of KFC.
