KFC Releases Edible Chicken-Flavored Nail Polish in Hong Kong
In Hong Kong, KFC wants customers to take its slogan very literally. Introducing, Finger Lickin’ Good nail polish: Edible, chicken-flavored nail lacquer will soon be available at KFC locations in Hong Kong.
The nail polish comes in two shades and flavors: original recipe (a nude color), and hot and spicy (a bright orange color). The nail polish totally works and is actually edible.
“Yes, it is actually a real thing,” said Anna Mugglestone, marketing and communications director for Ogilvy & Mather Group in Hong Kong, told The New York Times. “I tried it myself in the office when they were doing testing. It actually tastes like chicken.”
The polish, as you might suspect, is meant to appeal to younger consumers. Chicken-flavored nail polish has gotten mixed reviews thus far, to say the least:
