If you would like your home to smell KFC chicken this holiday season, Walmart is the place to go for the wonderful aroma.

Fox News reports that Walmart will become the exclusive retailer of the scented logs. The ever-popular fast food restaurant chain also confirmed the news on social media earlier this week. As the nation’s largest retailer, gaining exclusive rights to the logs is major news for Walmart.

“Back by popular demand,” KFC’s tweet proclaims. “11 herbs and spices firelog from @envirologfire is here for the holidays! Because it is never too early to start shopping for your chicken-scented gifting needs. Sold exclusively at select @walmart and walmart.com.”

It is the third consecutive year that the aroma logs have been made available to the public. They have been extremely popular, having sold out the last two years. The logs, made in partnership with Enviro-Log, hit select Walmart stores earlier this week and expect to be a hot item once again this year.

Walmart Says Logs Available for Limited Time

Walmart.com says the logs will only be available for a limited time only. The site describes the logs as “designed to make your home smell like fried chicken and feel as warm as an Extra Crispy drumstick at the bottom of a KFC bucket of fried chicken.”

The site also says the firelogs come from 100 percent recyclable materials and make for a great holiday gift. The logs sell for just under $16 on the Walmart website. Enviro-Log Founder and President Ross McRoy says there is a lot of excitement for the return of the KFC firelogs, according to a press release.

“The customer demand and excitement for the KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog has gotten bigger each year,” Ross said. “We at Enviro-Log are proud to once again partner with KFC and Walmart to create and distribute a product fans are ravenous for this holiday season – just don’t try to eat it!”
