Fast-food chain KFC hopes to make this Mother’s Day finger-lickin’ good with the launch of its fried chicken bouquet. Yep, you read that right — a fried chicken bouquet.
This Mother’s Day, the fried chicken hotspot is teaming up with Proflowers to introduce its “Kentucky Fried Buckquet” — a DIY floral arrangement that allows customers to make a bouquet that is part fried chicken and part fresh flowers.
But here’s the catch, the Kentucky Fried Buckquet is only available to those who pre-order a KFC Sides Lover Meal via either the KFC mobile app or KFC.com from May 1 to 3. The meal includes eight extra crispy tenders or eight pieces of KFC fried chicken, four baked biscuits, and a choice of three large sides.
Once the pre-order is placed, customers should expect an email with a promo code to redeem their free Kentucky Fried Buckquet kit from Proflowers. The kit from Proflowers will include 12 colorful and vibrant roses, a glass vase, a KFC vase applique, eight skewers for the separately purchased chicken and a card.
“A regular bouquet of flowers is a good gift for mom, but a Sides Lovers Meal and Kentucky Fried Buckquet is a finger lickin’ good way to take Mother’s Day from a 10 to an 11,” said Nick Chavez, CMO, KFC U.S. “With three sides, four buttery biscuits and the unforgettable – truly – fried chicken and flower table decoration, everybody is sure to get something they like to eat, and mom is sure to smile.”
