It’s time to step your game up, Yankee Candle, because Colonel Sanders is calling you out.

KFC has just released a super-limited scented candle, and the only way to get one is to win it. The contest, which is being run by KFC New Zealand, asks contestants to submit ideas for different KFC merchandise.

The candle was suggested by Shiz Inari, a New Zealander, who is now one of the lucky few to get the candle.

Unfortunately, we still can’t make our houses smell like the Colonel’s secret blend of 11 herbs and spiced because the contest is still going on. Contest winners receive the candle by entering the contest. Simply submit a suggestion and your entered.

According to Mashable, this isn’t the first time someone has made KFC-scented candles. “In 2015, giftware company Kentucky for Kentucky released a Double Down sandwich scented candle. It seems the world can't get enough of that finger-lickin' fried chicken scent.”

Finally, a candle that makes you constantly hungry. Arteries are going to hate this.

The good folks over at the New York Times wanted to show how "the nation's largest restaurant chains have made a big deal in recent years about introducing smaller portion sizes," but they have continued to make their dishes so rich they contain "a full day's worth of calories."




So they made a story showing what rought 2,000 calories looks like from some large restaurant chains, noting that "depending on age and gender, most adults should eat between 1,600 and 2,400 calories a day."



Are you guilty of eating a full day's calories in one sitting? What do you think of how little some of these dishes are for packing in so many calories? Let us know in the comments what you're thinking.

I, for one, forgot how delicious milk shakes are and may have to add that to my next meal out. Wrong lesson here?

It's that time of year again, you're back at school, back at work, and ready to gorge yourself to stay warm as the temperatures turn colder. So we've got some candies we dare you to try, and some fail-safe chicken nuggets to wash them all down with!

Brunch-Flavored Candy Corn is Here

So Brachs has decided to give us our first 'dare candy' of the season in their new Brunch-Flavored Candy Corn.



The bag contains a mix of three flavors, each more nauseating in a candy corn than the one before, and emitting an odor "very reminiscent of a Yankee Maple Pancake candle":

- French Toast & Maple Syrup
- Waffles & Strawberry
- Chocolate Chip & Pancakes

The good folks over at Thrillist just taste-tested them to give you an idea of what to expect:

We recommend you give 'em a try yourself and let us know what you think. Pick 'em up here.

A Definitive Ranking of the Best Fast Food Chicken Nuggets

Oh nuggets, in your little nuggety goodness and bite-sized chompiness, how I love thee!! So when I saw this ranking of the best fast food nuggets, I knew I had to memorize it.

Between Burger King, McDonald's, and Wendy's, who would win?

In one corner is McDonald's, the original creator of the McNugget, a name whose meaning flows deeply into the American psyche and pop culture with toys and phrases based around the juicy meat treat:





In another corner is the winner of 'freshest tasting burger' in my household, Wendy's, and traditionally known for its chicken, Burger King... who would reign supreme?

So the Burger King rankings were surprising, as they have the best chicken sandwich of the bunch (IMO), with a consistent meatiness that the others couldn't always deliver.






Okay, so it's wasn't Burger King... that's weird.

Could it be the Wal-Mart of restaurants, McDonald's? Or my homeboy of freshness, Wendy's?



With an overall winning score of 90.5 (out of 120 possible points), I leave it up to you to guess in the comments section below (before checking) as to who won the Nugget off: Wendy's or McDonald's????


Find out the actual winner here, and run your own taste test and let us know which YOU prefer, in the comments section.


We know why he has 'no comment' now...

This horrifying sight might be one of the reasons why some people say they won't eat anything that had a face. A customer at the French fast food restaurant "Quick" found some disgusting proof that they were certainly eating real chicken.  This fried chicken head was found among the chicken wings that they were trying to enjoy.  

The customer originally made a video about this, which you can watch here: 

If you're the type of person to eat fast food and assume you'll work it off, think again. This online calculator will tell you exactly how long you have to work to make up for what you just ate. What it doesn't factor in is the fact that everything, even breathing or thinking, uses calories. However, if you get an extra dessert you will still probably have to be running for a few HOURS to make up for it.

McDonald's has apparently been handing out mozzarella sticks with no mozzarella in them.  Several disappointed customers have turned to Twitter to share photos of the sad looking "hollow breading" sticks. These images have gone viral as the rest of the world sympathizes with these unfortunate people's lack of snack.

Rescue Mission of The Day: Taco Bell is Saving Its First Restaurant And Livestreaming The Whole Thing

A piece of Americana fast food history will be safe thanks to the good people at Taco Bell.

The first ever Taco Bell restaurant will be picked up, loaded on to a truck and driven 45 miles to a new home (all while being livestreamed.)

And it all happens TODAY!

The Downey, CA building served as a Taco Bell from 1962 to 1986 until other taco shops took up residence. Developers are eyeing the property, so Taco Bell corporate stepped in to rescue the building.

Taco Bell hasn't decided what to do with "Numero Uno," but the company is taking suggestions from fans while the old shop rests at Taco Bell headquarters for safe keeping.

If you live in Southern California, you can follow the building's journey along its many stops. Or check out the live feed here.
