Just In Time For Prom: KFC Unveils A ‘Drumstick Corsage’

What’s more romantic than the smell of … a fried chicken drumstick? Not much, KFC hopes. The chicken-chain king has teamed up with a Louisville, Ky., florist to offer a corsage for prom dates that comes with a fried drumstick, CNBC reports.

Actually it’s a bit DIY: The corsage itself goes for $20, and comes with a $5 gift card that can be used to buy the drumstick, which is then attached. The stick comes in any flavor, including original recipe, grilled, and extra crispy, notes Today.

“And right now I’m told no sides, they’re just doing the chicken,” said Today’s Jenna Wolfe. But there are only 100 being sold, so chicken lovers, you better cross that road fast.

Janice - the chicken isn't on the corsage - it is a gift card.

OMG how tacky and not to mention expensive. $20 for a couple of pieces of chicken. Where were the brains for this "invention"?

If anyone wearing this corsage bumps into someone else, there may be a touch of grease stain added to their clothing. A novel perfume for some, no doubt. Eau de KFC.

Ashley h said: "Well I suppose that is one way to ensure your date remembers you. I just hope you don't give it to a Vegan, unknowingly."

I am relatively confident that if there is dating, not to mention a prom involved, most will have already have been told in great detail about what vegans do and do not eat. It won't be a closely guarded secret.

This is the dumbest thing I ever heard. I hope no one is stupid enough to buy one! If the girl doesn't smack her boyfriend in the face with the drumstick then she deserves the moron.
