KFC MAKING CHICKEN FLAVORED NAIL POLISH

Share. Finger Lickin' Good
BY ALANAH PEARCE KFC in Hong Kong is marketing a limited edition edible nail polish that allegedly tastes like chicken.

KFC told Racked: "In line with its spirit of innovation, KFC Hong Kong unveils their new 'Finger Lickin' Good Edible Nail Polish' range, keeping the brand literally at their customers' fingertips while savoring their delicious signature chicken."

The nail polish was created as a tribute to the "It's Finger Lickin' Good" slogan, and the flavors are inspired by KFC's Original and Hot & Spicy recipes.

According to Adweek, Oglivy & Mather collaborated with "food technologists" at McCormick, which is the spice company that provides KFC's secret '11 herbs and spices' Original Recipe, to create the nail polishes.

"To use, consumers simply apply and dry like regular nail polish, and then lick—again and again and again," Oglivy & Mather said.

In terms of appearance, the nail polish is supposed to dry with a simple glossy coat. The appeal is in the marketing - Oglivy's creative director, John Koay said, "This campaign is designed to be intriguing and fun to increase excitement around the KFC brand in Hong Kong."

The nail polishes are only going to be available in Hong Kong, and only one of them will be mass-produced, which will be decided by consumer votes.

There's already shit in food, and this is food in shit. What's the difference? xD But no, bad idea. Nail polish is known as a toxic item, and making something like this edible... can people overdose on this?

Yeah, I read about this on the Beeb today. Apparently, the nail polish is made by McCormitt's (they make spices) and right now is only being distributed to news outlets. It's highly perishable, and the polish is only good for one time application due to the perishable nature of it.

They were given two bottles which apparently had expired the day before. They said that the Spicy nail polish tasted like the sauce (but not like chicken) and the Original Recipe bottle, while it had turned green in color, tasted like the herbs used in the recipe (but not like chicken either). They thought it was amusing though.

You need an intervention. That remind me, we need a hog dog that tastes like pizza.
