A WOMAN shared how KFC’s Chicken and Flower Bouquet was a fun and inexpensive DIY gift for the fried chicken lover in her life.
The fried chicken chain offered this year the unique bouquet for Mother’s Day.
KFC announced the release of its “Buckquet” arrangement a few weeks before Mother’s Day.
It was a collaboration with Proflowers, a flower company based in San Diego, California.
The DIY giveaway was supposed to sell out May 1-3, but apparently sold out within 24 hours.
Customers had to order a KFC Sides Lovers meal to receive a promotional code for the free “Buckquet”.
The “Buckquet” consisted of a dozen roses, eight skewers, a vase with the KFC logo and a Mother’s Day card.
Stephanie Nieves bought the DIY bouquet for her mother and described how the chicken needed for the arrangement had to be purchased separately.
After that, her sister arranged the flowers and the chicken for their mother, who apparently loved it.
“I ordered this for my little sister, Sajdah, to give to my mom because I’m in Texas and they’re both in New York,” Nieves said as quoted by Business Insider.
She said the meal was $27.49 plus tax and shared photos of her mom enjoying the chicken.
“His cry was proof that this gift had been great,” Nieves said.
She’s not the only fast food lover who turned to a chain restaurant for a moment to remember.
In February, a Florida couple made headlines after getting married in Checkers.
Victoria and Arley Smude celebrated their wedding ceremony in front of friends, family and a 43ft trailer full of chicken tenderloins and seasoned fries.
The bride told local media that Checkers holds a special place in the couple’s hearts as it’s one of the places the newlyweds first interacted – even though it wasn’t love at first sight.
Arley, who thought Victoria already had a boyfriend, spent their first meeting “avoiding him, not talking at all”.
Once the pair realized their attraction to each other, they began a relationship, making seasoned fries and crispy chicken from Checkers an essential part of their bond.
And KFC wasn’t the only fast-food restaurant offering specials to celebrate mom this year.
Insomnia Cookies, a chain of bakeries in the United States, offered a limited-edition purple box that included a variety of a dozen cookies.
Tim Hortons, a Canadian quick-service restaurant, offered a do-it-yourself donut kit. The kit included six donuts, frosting flavors and toppings.
At Wienerschnitzel, moms ate free with the purchase of a chili dog, small fries and a small soda, according to the outlet.
