KFC Releases Edible Chicken-Flavored Nail Polish in Hong Kong

KFC has released edible nail polish for its Hong Kong customer base available in original (nude), and hot and spicy (orange)

Get the finger-lickin’ goods!

In Hong Kong, KFC wants customers to take its slogan very literally. Introducing, Finger Lickin’ Good nail polish: Edible, chicken-flavored nail lacquer will soon be available at KFC locations in Hong Kong.

The nail polish comes in two shades and flavors: original recipe (a nude color), and hot and spicy (a bright orange color). The nail polish totally works and is actually edible.

“Yes, it is actually a real thing,” said Anna Mugglestone, marketing and communications director for Ogilvy & Mather Group in Hong Kong, told The New York Times. “I tried it myself in the office when they were doing testing. It actually tastes like chicken.”

The polish, as you might suspect, is meant to appeal to younger consumers. Chicken-flavored nail polish has gotten mixed reviews thus far, to say the least:

KFC Launches Edible Nail Polish In Hong Kong

The two edible nail polishes are based on the company's Original and Hot & Spicy recipes. The Hong Kong test group is being asked to choose a nail flavor that will be massed produced.

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Kentucky Fried Chicken is taking literalism to a whole new level. The country whose slogan is of course finger lickin' good, is expanding its product line to include edible nail polish. Inspired by KFC's top secret ingredients, customers in Hong Kong can now manicure or, God forbid, pedicure with flavors like original or hot and spicy. A press release says users should simply apply, dry and then lick - again and again. Mmm. It's MORNING EDITION.
