What is Kentucky Fried Buckquet?
Kentucky Fried Buckquet is part fresh flowers, part fried chicken, and altogether amazing. The kit for this do-it-yourself flower-and-chicken arrangement includes 12 colorful and vibrant roses, a glass vase, a KFC vase applique, eight skewers, and a card to tell mom just how much you love her. The skewers are for KFC’s world-famous fried chicken, which is separately purchased and not included in the kit.
