After a long, hard and stressful week, I sometimes like to eschew the frantic weekend nightlife. Instead of drinking in expensive clubs till the wee hours of the morning, I like to take the time to treat myself and recharge my batteries. I’ll put my feet up, indulge in a delicious takeaway, and in the evening, I’ll run myself a nice hot bubble bath.
Although on the surface you’re ostensibly just stewing in your own gross people juices, there’s something inherently soothing about soaking in some hot water, letting all of your worries and problems evaporate away. A nice book and a couple of candles are always welcome, but what about the bath bomb? Do you go for vanilla? Lavender? What if instead of those, you could go for a famous blend of 11 herbs and spices?
Up until very recently, that was merely an unconventional pipe dream, but now, KFC have dropped a new bath bomb, which promises to give your bath time the glorious scent of Original Recipe fried chicken it deserves.
The Chinese New Year back in late January may have ushered in the Year of the Rooster, but 2017 has also been the year of the (Kentucky-fried) chicken, as KFC have launched a chicken sandwich into space, released a Colonel Sanders Halloween costume, not to mention publishing a romance novella just in time for Mother’s Day.
Now, things are about to get steamy in a whole other way, as the Japanese branch of KFC has conceived fried chicken-scented bath bombs. Between November 1 and November 15, KFC have partnered with the Japanese novelty retailers Village Vanguard to bring you these amazing bath bombs.
Although life is full of setbacks and disappointments, there are plenty of good things still to enjoy, and sometimes our wildest dreams come true. Understandably, the entire internet stood as one to react to this most amazing of news. There were some skeptics, but others were completely in love with the idea of a fried chicken bath. Who wouldn’t be?
You might have noticed that this promotion seems to have originated in Japan, but worry not! Although only 100 of the bath bombs have been created, there’s a way to have the best bath of all time, even if you live in the United States! If you want to unwind with the soothing smell of a KFC deep fryer, then you really should enter the competition that comes with the new campaign.
All you need to do is follow the official KFC Japan Twitter account, and retweet the tweet below, along with these hashtags: #KFCのアノ香りand #秘伝のコンビパック.
If you’re one of the lucky winners, then not only will you win the bath bomb, but a red and white KFC-branded box too, as well as a coupon for a Secret Combination Pack of chicken. I don’t know about you guys, but I really hope I get picked. It’s like the Roald Dahl book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but way better.
Well, what are you waiting for? Find the tweet, and enter this most amazing competition! I wish you the best of luck.
