adweek.com – By Tim Nudd – Hong Kong – April Fools’ Day was a month ago, but KFC is only just now announcing that it has made two edible nail polishes that bring the classic tagline, “Finger Lickin’ Good,” grossly to life. Ogilvy & Mather worked with food technologists at McCormick, the spice company that provides KFC’s secret mix of 11 secret herbs and spices, to crate the nail polishes for KFC Hong Kong. The polish flavors are sourced from natural ingredients and based on the brand’s two favorite recipes, Original and Hot & Spicy.
So, yes, it tastes like chicken—at least, the coated stuff KFC sells.
“To use, consumers simply apply and dry like regular nail polish, and then lick—again and again and again,” the brand said in a statement.
