Forget the Chicken Sandwich War.
Kentucky Fried Chicken brought back a popular holiday item Thursday that can make your whole house smell like fried chicken – the limited-edition 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog.
And while it didn’t sell out as quickly as last year’, the logs developed with Enviro-Log, which were sold for $18.99 at Walmart.com this year, were listed as “out of stock” Friday afternoon.
“Last year, we captured the hearts, noses and fireplaces of our fans, but thousands more were clamoring to get their hands on our limited firelogs,” Andrea Zahumensky, KFC U.S. chief marketing officer, said in a statement, noting the partnership with Walmart will help “spread the finger-lickin’ good cheer.”

If you want one of the logs, you’ll need to act fast. In 2018, the logs sold out in three hours.
“The limited-time, limited-quantity firelog makes for a perfect unexpected gift for office Secret Santa or White Elephant gift exchanges with friends,” KFC suggests in a news release.
The logs can be burned outdoors, in fireplaces, woodstoves and fire pits.
Ross McRoy, Enviro-Log president and founder, said in a statement that the Georgia-based company received weekly calls about the log since they sold out last year.
“This hearth-warming and hunger-inducing partnership between Enviro-Log, KFC, and Walmart.com is sure to spice things up this holiday season,” McRoy said.
