KFC Now Sells Fried Chicken Corsages For Prom (Video)

We get it...everyone loves fried chicken. It's golden crispy shell hides moist, slightly salty meat. It's savory, juicy, and decadent. Plus...fried.

But there's got to be a limit to our eternal love for a bucket of finger lickin' goodness. Or is there?

Do we love fried chicken so much we'd wear it....to prom?

That's the question Kentucky Fried Chicken asks in their new #HowDoYouKFC campaign, where the Colonel is offering fried chicken fans actual fried chicken corsages for sale.

Yes...they're real.

And yes, they have their own website.

For $20, Nanz & Kraft Florists in Louisville, Kentucky will send you a corsage made out of baby's breath and a $5 coupon for KFC, so you can "customize your corsage with Original Recipe, Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken. Whichever best matches her dress". For obvious reasons, "Chicken not included (duh.)".

As the website says, "this KFC drumstick corsage is the Secret Recipe to making sure this year's dance will be one you both remember." Just hold off on the gravy. It's tough to get out of pink satin gowns.
