Because there’s nothing as romantic as fried chicken, KFC is getting into the high school prom game with a limited-time “chicken corsage” that is certain to make its wearer the most unique, if not the most fragrant, person at the dance.
According to Gawker, high school students who want to strap fried drumsticks to their wrists can order a “chicken corsage kit” with lace, silk leaves and baby’s breath for $20 from Nanz and Kraft, a florist in Louisville, Ky. The corsage base comes without chicken and can be shipped to promgoers anywhere.
“Looking for a corsage that will make your date’s eyes light up and her mouth water? This KFC drumstick corsage is the Secret Recipe to making sure this year’s dance will be one you both remember,” the corsage website says.
To make sure the centerpiece of the corsage is as fresh as possible, buyers will get a $5 KFC coupon so the wearer can purchase a drumstick of his or her choice — original, grilled, or extra-crispy — to install among the leaves and baby’s breath with a little ribbon.
The chicken corsages are a limited edition item with just 100 corsage bases available, so anyone looking to make a big statement at prom had better order one quickly. Otherwise they'll be forced to try the DIY option of just tying a drumstick around their wrists, and that might look silly.
