Walmart and KFC Just Brought Back This Super Popular Seasonal Item

Fill your home with the aroma of fried chicken.
FACT CHECKED BY Mura Dominko

One of the best things about enjoying a great meal at home is the rich aroma that fills the space before you even sit down to eat. This season, thanks to a popular annual partnership between KFC and Walmart, you can enjoy the aroma of great food—namely KFC's fried chicken—without any cooking required.

You can now find the KFC 11 Herbs and Spices Firelog by Enviro-Log for sale at Walmart locations nationwide and on the retailer's website. To be very clear, yes, this is a fireplace fire log that is fried chicken-scented. (And no, there is not any actual chicken used in its production.)

If you think this is a marketing gimmick, you may be partially right, but a joke it is not. In fact, when Walmart first offered the KFC-scented Enviro-Log three years ago, it sold out nationwide, according to Business Insider. And the same thing has happened every year since.

Opinions about the KFC-Enviro-Log product are mixed on Twitter.

Others were less enthused with the novelty.

The Herbs and Spices Firelog reportedly has a burn time of up to three hours and can safely be used in indoor fireplaces or wood stoves, outdoor fire pits, or directly in campfires. The 2021 edition of the KFC firelog has an "extra crispy scent" compared to previous iterations.

But that's not all, KFC is also rolling out a chance to win a cabin getaway for eight for those who purchase the log. The Kentucky Fried Chicken Firelog Cabin, which is a 7,000-square-foot luxury accommodation, will host the lucky winners and their posse for a three-day, two-night stay, along with a private dinner prepared on-site by KFC's head chef, Chris Scott.

To enter, simply scan the QR code on the packaging of your new firelog or download the KFC mobile app before December 31.
