KFC has launched an apparel range

Just when you thought KFC’s marketing team were done making waves for 2017, the fast-food chain has recently dropped a clothing and accessories line.

If you’ve ever walked into KFC and thought, “Boy, you know what would enhance this culinary experience? A gift shop.” Then today is your clucky day.

The new line launched into the latest consumer nonsense that for some reason never fails to succeed – fast food apparel.

If it all sounds a little stupid, then the chain has done its job. This year KFC has proven it is the king of satirical marketing.

Some of their other ventures for 2017 included Mother Day chocolates and an iconic romance novel featuring the Colonel himself, Tender wings of desire.

KFC isn’t the first chain to feature a clothing line. Late March of this year, Cheetos also designed a clothing line.

Their Spring Snack Line sold out within a week.

The KFC line is a little more expansive than Cheetos, and includes a minimalist print of their famed (or should we say framed) potato and gravy.

The line also includes denim patches, enamel pins and a set of Colonel Sanders pillowcases.

This impeccably minimalist crewneck sweatshirt screams fashion. If people, ask where you found it you can just say “KFC”.

Looking to add a little more punk rock to your popcorn chicken snack box? Great, because these patches will give you a sense of style your friends can only dream of.

Let the gentle, unbreaking eye contact of Colonel Sanders add a bit of spice to your bedroom.

Yes, this is a print of mashed potatoes.

Have you recently come into some money but hate cars, houses, traveling, drugs, horse racing, the stock market, and pretty much anything else people like to throw $100 bills at? Then perhaps this $20,000 meteorite carved in the shape of chicken sandwich—something KFC is actually really selling—is your kind of splurge.

The market is being put through a trial run in the states at the moment, but the line and all the other accessories are available for purchase online - but be quick, its for a limited time only, like most of their best things.
