(CNN) -- Ahhhh yes, the chill of winter has descended upon us once again. And that means the time has come to slip on your fluffiest socks, snuggle up next to a crackling fire, and bask in the smoky scent of....chicken?
In a partnership with artificial fire log company Enviro-Log, Kentucky Fried Chicken is offering what's sure to be the hottest commodity of the season -- a hunk of flammable, chicken-scented bliss otherwise known as the 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog.
You don't even have to go flying out of the front door to get your hands on the bizarre, flaming mass. It's exclusively sold on Walmart.com for a slick $18.99.
You will need to really assess your priorities to decide whether that's too much to pay for a log that will fill your house with a distinct poultry smell.
Last year, KFC said, the creation sold out in just three hours. So, of course, they could not resist giving the people what they obviously want for a second year in a row.
"Since selling out last year, we have received weekly calls from hopeful fans wanting to get their hands on the 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog," said Ross McRoy, president and founder of Enviro-Log.
KFC suggests you pop that sucker in your online shopping cart, cash in on Walmart.com's free two-day shipping, and then hit up kfc.com to order a $20 Fill Up to be delivered straight to your door. You may never have to leave the house this winter with this succulent duo!
What is a $20 Fill Up, you might ask? It's a whole spread equipped with 8 pieces of KFC's Original Chicken Extra Crispy or Kentucky Grilled Chicken, a large cole slaw, four biscuits and two large heaps of mashed potatoes and gravy to keep you warm.
Don't have a fireplace to burn the log in?
Consider these options:
- Slam it on top of a pile of holiday shopping catalogs for the ultimate paperweight
- A door-stop that doubles as an air diffuser once the chicken scent starts to leak into the air
- A permanent art installation in your home entryway
- The quintessential KFC collectors item
- A perfect holiday gag gift
