This Valentine’s Day, KFC wants you to show your loved ones how much you care by giving them a fried chicken scratch ‘n’ sniff Valentine’s Day card featuring its iconic founder, Colonel Harland Sanders. Available in participating KFC U.S. restaurants beginning Feb. 12, KFC’s set of four retro-inspired valentines romantically combine tender love lines with the intoxicating scent of fried chicken. When paired with a $10 Chicken Share, perfect for two, KFC is America’s one-stop shop for Valentine’s Day.
“Some years you have to search high and low for the perfect gift for your Valentine,” said Andrea Zahumensky, KFC U.S. CMO. “This year, we decided to make things easy. Skip the candy and go straight for the fried chicken! Grab dinner and some scratch ‘n’ sniff Valentine’s Day cards, and share your love of fried chicken with your valentine.”
KFC’s valentines come in four different intoxicating designs, each with a fried chicken scratch ‘n’ sniff patch, so your valentine can indulge in the heavenly aroma of the Colonel’s 11 herbs and spices. Each valentine features Colonel Sanders with some of his favorite KFC menu items, accompanied by various sappy love lines like:
- “You have the secret recipe to my heart.”
- “I fell in love the first moment I slaw you.”
- “We’re two peas in a chicken pot pie.”
- “I’d be with you all the time if only I could. You make me feel so finger lickin’ good.”
For those who are more digitally inclined, KFC has partnered with Tenor, the largest mobile GIF search engine, to create a series of animated KFC valentines for sharing with friends & family in popular messaging apps. Starting this week and running through Valentine’s Day, users of Tenor’s GIF Keyboard mobile app can find the animated KFC valentines by searching for both love- and singlehood-related terms in the keyboard. In addition to Tenor’s GIF Keyboard app, Tenor’s GIF search technology is integrated into Facebook, Whatsapp and Twitter, among many other messaging platforms.
KFC’s limited-edition valentines are free, while supplies last with the purchase of a $10 Chicken Share, which includes the perfect amount of fried chicken, Extra Crispy™ Chicken Tenders or Popcorn Nuggets for two people. KFC chicken is freshly, hand prepared by cooks in KFC restaurants every day to create the ultimate Valentine’s Day date.
