Last spring, KFC brought back their fabled Double Down fried-chicken sandwich, but, like all good things which will surely eventually kill you if you consume too much of it, the Double Down was only available for a limited time.
If you can’t have the real thing, a company called Kentucky for Kentucky — a retail website that celebrates all things Kentucky — wants you to be able to enjoy the wafting, delicious aromas of the Double Down anytime.
In a new line of candles called “Scents of the Commonwealth,” Kentucky for Kentucky offers candles in the scent of the aforementioned Double Down, Hot Brown, Mint Julep and regular Fried Chicken, which is basically just the Double Down candle with no bacon smell.
