Prom season is in full swing, and KFC wants to add a little something to the big night: a chicken snack on your date's wrist.
For a limited time, KFC is offering corsages showcasing the Colonel's famous fried chicken drumsticks resting on a bed of baby's breath.
The corsage kits sell for $20 and come with a $5 KFC gift card so teens can select their preferred style of chicken (
"Word is spreading, and they're going pretty fast," Angie Searcy, general manager of Nanz & Kraft, told USA TODAY Network. The company has 50 left as of Monday afternoon. They agreed to make 100, but may reconsider if KFC wants to continue the offer, Searcy said.
KFC, which is based in Louisville, approached Nanz & Kraft about the concept, Searcy said. The florist company has been in Louisville since 1850.
The partnership is local, but Searcy said the interest is widespread.
"We are shipping them all over the place. The bulk of (orders) are from different cities and states, not actually Kentucky," she said. Local orders come with real baby's breath and out-of-town corsages come with artificial baby's breath, according to the website.
KFC surprised a few people in Louisville who were talking about the promotion on Twitter with corsages of their own.
Twitter user @alyssaemelia shared a photo with her corsage and wrote, "Thank you @kfc for asking me to prom with a chicken corsage. #putawingonit."
