If you’re a KFC fanatic who fantasizes about bathing in its fried chicken goodness, then brace yourself because your dreams have finally come true. If you’re the majority of the population who’s repulsed by the idea of washing themselves in the restaurant’s signature 11 herbs and spices scent, then KFC’s latest concoction will leave you wondering if we’re all being punk’d.
KFC Japan has turned the restaurant’s signature dish into a fried chicken bath bomb, because apparently, people everywhere find nothing more relaxing than enjoying a bath in an explosion of fast food fried fragrance.
KFC has teamed up with the Japanese novelty retailer Village Vanguard to launch this drum-stick shaped bath bomb fizzer. If you’re wondering how you can get your hands on one, I’m sad to report it isn’t available to the general populace.
This limited edition, highly unconventional beauty product is only available through an online competition via Twitter from November 1 to November 15. To enter, participants must be based in Japan, follow @KFC_jp and retweet the KFC tweet below with the special hashtags included. Only 100 ‘lucky’ people will be chosen in this lottery style contest.
The fun doesn’t stop there. Winners will also receive a red and white KFC-branded box and a coupon for a Secret Combination Pack of chicken. Whoa! Dream Big!
The good people of Twitter have a thing or two to say about this new development in self-care, and as usual, they’re delivering.

KFC created a bath bomb that smells like Fried Chicken. The only catch is that when its finished…. you need a bath

PSA: I think the fried chicken bath bomb is one of the weirdest things ever, despite my love of fried chicken. THIS IS TOO FAR KFC.

This isn’t the restaurant’s first attempt at stepping outside the box in creating unique brand-specific products. Previously, the company unveiled a fried chicken scented sunscreen, candle and even an edible nail polish.
What a time to be alive, amiright?
For those of you rare gems out there who are eager to soak yourself in a KFC bubble bath only to emerge, reeking like a bucket of fried chicken – to each their own. Maybe Christmas will come early and you can get your hands on one of your very own.
For the rest of us, let’s hope this never makes it to the States.
