We don’t know how you feel about the cold – maybe you love it, maybe you hate it, maybe you’ve already left for Mexico, maybe you just want to stop hearing about it. Everyone else seems to be talking about it, anyway, as temps dropping down to -51F with windchill are pretty frigid even by Minnesota standards.
But keeping cozy has become crucial if you’re still in Minnesota. If you’re lucky enough to have a fireplace, that usually does the trick. Otherwise, lighting candles adds a sense of comfort as well; there’s nothing like a flickering flame in our homes-turned-igloos to help keep the chill from our bones.
And, as KFC just can’t seem to stop collaborating which unconventional partners to make unconventional products – which we outlined in 2017 with How have we survived this long without KFC’s fried chicken bath bombs? – they are now offering gravy-scented candles to help you hygge in a the most home-cooked way possible.
As the fried chicken company said in a press release, they took an “artisanal approach” to “ensure the familiar and evocative aroma of gravy was perfectly captured… Initially the different ingredients within the gravy were split into their constituent parts and fragrances matched to each. Then the scent was built component by component in the similar ratios as KFC’s iconic gravy.”

The only bad news for Minnesotans is that it won’t be easy to get one: Only 230 fans in the UK will be able to breathe in the “beloved scent” by entering in KFC’s Gravy Candle Competition, after which winners will be able to “breath in the soothing aroma of KFC gravy” all winter long – and, as was intended by the company, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
For those with friends and family across the pond, well, good luck and may the best fried-chicken-loving fan win.
