Fried chicken lovers: You need to see KFC’s Christmas collection

Kentucky Fried Chicken released a line of festive Colonel Sanders and fried chicken themed apparel just in time for the holiday season. The gifts in the holiday collection are perfect for the chicken lover in your life. In fact, we can't think of a better Christmas present than a fried chicken throw pillow. 

The Louisville-based fast food chain delved into the e-commerce world earlier this year with merchandise and apparel as part of the brand’s new advertising strategy by the ad agency Wieden+Kennedy. This new strategy earned the brand Eater’s Brand of the Year award earlier this month.

Colonel Sanders and fried chicken t-shirts, as well as prints of the Colonel, are available throughout the year, but the holiday additions are something else. This collection has a set of KFC-themed stickers, a "finger lickin’ good" necklace and a “Legal Tender” money clip that make great stocking stuffers, plus KFC wrapping paper and bows to wrap those finger lickin' good gifts in. 



But the real standouts in the collection are the Dream Colonel pillowcase and the Internet Escape Pod

With the Dream Colonel pillowcase, you’ll be dreaming of fried chicken all night long for only $14. Who wouldn’t love falling asleep with the Colonel looking over you?

And if you’re looking to escape from all the bad news this holiday season, then head to the Internet Escape Pod. The fully enclosed tent can fit three adults and with “Colonel Sanders' protective embrace” you can relax without any connection to the internet. At the next holiday gathering, if your friends or families are stuck staring at their phones, invite them into the escape pod where the steel mesh cage will block their phone signals and you’ll be able to have a real conversation with the ones you love. The $5,000 cage comes complete with a fried chicken zipper pull and requires some assembly, but may just help you reconnect with your loved ones this holiday season.
