KFC has launched a fashion line, so dedicated fans of the fast food chain can show their devotion by wearing items in tribute to finger lickin’ chicken.
This week, KFC revealed an online shop so fans can buy everything from drumstrick-printed socks to a pillow with Colonel Sanders’ face on it.
KFC enthusiasts can splash out on a “Fried Chicken USA” Sweatshirt for £58, or a range of T-shirts including one resembling the Colonel’s suit for £13.80.
There are also accessories for the fried-chicken obsessed fan, including a necklace saying “finger lickin good” for £9.21 and pocket squares printed with chicken drumsticks costing £9.21.
There is also a burger pin for £15.35 for those looking to wear their love for the food proudly on their lapels.
The website says: “Quality chicken goods for your everyday life. Dance like no one’s watching. Sing like no one’s listening. Dress like you haven’t eaten lunch yet.”
Perhaps the most bizarre item being sold on the website is a 400-year-old meteorite in the shape of a Zinger sandwich, which costs a staggering £15,348 ($20,000).
The description on the unusual listing reads: “Don’t miss your chance to own this very significant and very heavy piece of chicken sandwich space travel history.”
People are also able to decorate their homes in tribute to KFC too, with wall prints of items like mashed potato for £23 available on the shop.
The website says: “There’s no point in having walls if you don’t have art to put on those walls. But it shouldn’t be just any art.
“It should be art that inspires you. Art that makes you feel something.
“Art that features an entrepreneurial Colonel in his natural habitat or maybe some of said Colonel’s delicious-looking fried chicken and biscuits.”
Currently fans are going wild for the products and a number have already sold out on the shop, so you’ll have to be quick to get your hands on them.
One user commented saying: “Never thought I’d wake up to see KFC releasing a clothing line.”
Another said: “I’m not sure exactly why, but KFC is out with a line of clothing & accessories – some surprisingly stylish.”
According to AdWeek, the KFC US director of media and digital, Steve Kelly, said: “KFC and Colonel Sanders have been American pop culture icons for more than 70 years.
“Our fans were craving a way to embrace the fried chicken lifestyle, and KFC Ltd. gives them the opportunity to let their Colonel flag fly.”
Fans can now get KFC delivered right to their doors with Just Eat.
To make things as finger clicking easy as possible, all customers have to do is select their order via the app and website.
