Prom season is underway nationwide, and KFC is kicking things up a notch with a spicy addition to the usual date night rituals: a finger lickin’ good floral mash-up.
For a limited time, KFC is offering corsages featuring the Colonel’s famous fried chicken drumsticks fashioned into a corsage atop a bed of baby’s breath flowers.
The chic chicken sells for $20 and comes with a $5 KFC gift card so prom-bound teens can select their preferred style of chicken (Original Recipe, Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken), according to Nanz & Kraft’s website, the florist company working with KFC on the promotion.
“Word is spreading, and they’re going pretty fast,” Angie Searcy, general manager of Nanz & Kraft,said in an interview. The Louisville company says that while they are a local shop, they have garnered interest from across the country.
“We are shipping them all over the place. The bulk of (orders) are from different cities and states, not actually Kentucky,” she said. Local orders come with real baby’s breath and out-of-town corsages come with artificial baby’s breath, according to the website.
Get ‘em while they’re…hot!
