(Newser) – What's more romantic than the smell of ... a fried chicken drumstick? Not much, KFC hopes: The chicken-chain king has teamed up with a Louisville, Ky., florist to offer a corsage for prom dates that comes with a fried drumstick, CNBC reports. Actually it's a bit DIY: The corsage itself goes for $20, and comes with a $5 gift card that can be used to buy the drumstick, which is then attached. The stick comes in any flavor, including original recipe, grilled, and extra crispy, notes Today. "And right now I’m told no sides, they’re just doing the chicken," said Today's Jenna Wolfe. But there are only 100 being sold, so chicken lovers, you better cross that road fast.
