KFC Brings Back Special Holiday Menu Item


KFC wants your home to smell like its iconic blend of 11 herbs and spices this holiday season. For the fourth year in a row, the beloved fast food fried chicken chain is bringing back the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog, the famed firelog hat smells like the Colonel’s famous fried chicken, but this year, there’s another gift under the tree: the Kentucky Fried Chicken Firelog Cabin getaway.

First introduced back in 2018, the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog smells exactly like the Colonel’s secret recipe. Upon its 2018 debut, research reported in Psychology Today reported that the smells trigger areas in the brain strongly linked to memory. The firelog instantly became a covetable holiday tradition, and given the fanfare, KFC is bringing it back in 2021 with a few updates. Those who purchase the firelog this holiday season – it is available for $15.88 exclusively on Walmart.com – will receive a firelog with updated, limited-edition packaging and an enhanced extra crispy scent.

In addition to the 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog, KFC also created the Kentucky Fried Chicken Firelog Cabin for the 2021 season, sharing that they “decided to turn it up a notch.” The Kentucky Fried Chicken Firelog Cabin is described as a “truly once-in-a-lifetime KFC-themed vacation giveaway.” The experience includes a three-day, two-night stay for up to eight people in a 7,000 square foot, three-story luxury log cabin that is surrounded by 200-acres of a protected nature reserve. The cabin is fittingly located in Kentucky. The cabin boasts four bedrooms, multiple open living room spaces, a theater room and built-in bar, kitchen and dining area, outdoor kitchen, pool, and hot tub. The cabin has also been decorated for a true KFC experience.

According to the chain, when guests arrive, they will follow the path of KFC Bucket lamp posts up the stone steps, where they will be met with “cozy rocking chairs draped with a classic Colonel throw blanket.” Inside, the fireplace will be stocked with KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelogs, with the interior decorated with a KFC Bucket light and a Colonel Bearskin rug. Guests will also be treated to a visit from KFC’s Head Chef, Chris Scott, who will prepare a private dinner in which beloved KFC menu items are turned into a gourmet, five-course meal.
