KFC release fried chicken scented sunscreen in the US

Kentucky Fried Chicken US has released a unique scented sunscreen guaranteed to tug at the heart strings of fried chicken lovers around the world.

The fast food giant took to the web to promote their ‘Extra Crispy Sunscreen’ earlier this week and, believe it or not, it has already sold out.

“The sun gives us life. But if we’re not careful it also gives us painful sunburns. That’s why we made KFC’s Extra Crispy™ Sunscreen!” A description of the product on the KFC website reads.


“Its SPF helps protect your skin while the real fried chicken scent leaves you smelling delicious!

“Harmful ultraviolet rays bounce off your skin while the lovely fragrance rays penetrate it to give you a healthy chicken aroma.”

No, this is not a joke – bottles of the Col. Sander’s Extra Crispy Sunscreen were given away to a limited number of customers in the US as part of a promotion for the chains new fried chicken recipe.

“This was a limited-time offer and we ran out of KFC Extra Crispy Sunscreen. Please accept our apologies in the form of this amazing website that you can still look at.” they company wrote on their website.

The scented sunscreen comes just months after KFC launched its edible chicken-flavoured nail polish in Hong Kong.
