It's no secret that KFC knows how to innovate. Those 11 herbs and species have completely changed the fried chicken game, and redefined what it means to be "finger-lickin' good."
And you may have thought that KFC was done innovating. You've seen those failed commercials with the washed-up comedians, you know the KFC famous bowl is just a collection of leftovers that have been repackaged, and yet here we are. At the intersection between fast-food and modern living. Who even knew such an intersection existed? KFC did, that's who.
Don't get it twisted, this is not a sponsored post. As much as I'd love to be getting free fried chicken for life, I'm just a fan. And after today, you will be too. So let's check out exactly what I'm over-hyping right now so you can decide for yourself.
Everyone knows KFC is supreme.

And don't start with the Popeye's love.The only thing Popeye's has on KFC is that Tuesday special, where you can get about two pieces of chicken for less money than it takes in gas to drive to Popeyes. So let me explain to you why KFC is better.
Step aside, Steve Jobs.There's a new (and also dead) genius in town.
KFC is pushing gravy, hard.Popeye's doesn't even have gravy. End of argument, we're done.
But KFC just had to go and one-up its fast-food competitors by announcing this brand new KFC Gravy Scented Candle.
via: KFCThat's right. They're changing the game yet again, with a candle.
Here's the tweet that changed the world.

Studies have shown that gravy is more powerful than essential oils or mood crystals.Okay, I just made that up – but honestly, it might as well be true. Next time, skip the eucalyptus oil and rub some gravy on your temples instead. It certainly couldn't hurt.
This isn't the first time KFC has done this.
They also did a Fried Chicken bath bomb in Japan.

Guess what? There's real gravy inside.
@t0nymills Whilst the candle does include some of our infamous gravy, we wouldn't advise actually eating it... https://t.co/tFN6zegs3j— KFC UK & Ireland (@KFC UK & Ireland)1548078921.0
You might be thinking, why on earth is this a thing?
@lindsayjhaynes Because... Gravy!— KFC UK & Ireland (@KFC UK & Ireland)1548089169.0
Is this some kind of prank?
@travellingbat This is no joke. Our Gravy is serious stuff!— KFC UK & Ireland (@KFC UK & Ireland)1548066439.0
Move over PB&J or Mac n Cheese, there's a new power combo on the market.
@JoshDixonTweets @xssyharvey It's everything you could ever dream of.— KFC UK & Ireland (@KFC UK & Ireland)1548088733.0
This person is a heathen.Lighting the candle is the only way to appreciate its true beauty. Like listening to that one Beatles album, but backward.
