Chicken corsage? KFC debuts limited prom accessory

By Julianne Cassidy. CREATED Apr 13, 2014

Is wearing a fresh drumstick on your arm the latest prom accessory trend? KFC hopes so after debuting its new "Chicken Corsage." 

The restaurant chain partnered with Kentucky florist Nanz & Kraft Florists to allow consumers to order the "Chicken Corsage" on the florist's website for $20 plus shipping.

"Looking for a corsage that will make your date’s eyes light up and her mouth water? This KFC drumstick corsage is the Secret Recipe to making sure this year’s dance will be one you both remember," details the order page.

The corsage arrives with a $5 KFC gift check. Buyers are asked to go to their local KFC to pick up their own drumstick to be placed on the corsage. "You can customize your corsage with Original Recipe, Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken. Whichever best matches her dress," further describes the "KFC Chicken Corsage" page.

Kentucky residents will receive a corsage of fresh baby's breath. However, out-of-town customers will get silk baby's breath in their corsage.

Please note: This goofy gimmick is a limited prom special as there are only 100 chicken corsages available for purchase.
