Who wouldn't want that?

Below, excerpts from Jayne Clark's USA Today story:

What's the next best thing to the aroma of fried chicken wafting from a hot iron skillet?

Why, that'd be the smell of fried chicken wafting from a scented candle.

"Your home can now smell like fried chicken all the time, without having to actually fry chicken," says Whit Hiler, co-founder of Kentucky for Kentucky, a business that promotes small-batch products from the Bluegrass State. "Thank you sweet baby Jesus. Thank you Kentucky for being the first state to fry chicken."

KFC/Col. Sanders legacy notwithstanding, we don't know if Kentucky was the first to fry up some chicken, but it's probably the first to put the scent in a candle.

They're made by Kathy Werking, who fried chicken in soy wax and added some "family secrets" to the mix to attain the realistic signature scent.

Kentucky for Kentucky collaborates with artists on ideas for limited-edition products. Creative director Joshua Kingsland says he met with Werking to discuss scents and said, "I'd love a fried chicken candle. She said, 'That's insane and I'm gonna make one.'"

If only it were fried chicken and waffles. That said, I'm waiting for someone to make the Sweet Brown Lawd Jesus Its A Fire candle.
