Somewhat repulsively, KFC just released an Extra Crispy Fried Chicken-scented sunscreen. Now, after eating greasy fast food chicken, my No. 1 priority is purging the scent from my clothes, hair and home, but apparently I’m alone — KFC gave out 3,000 tubes of the sunscreen in the first two hours of their promotion, and are now sold out.

So, OK, we want to smell like food. But instead of making yourself smell like a combination of old deep-fryer oil and a slightly-singed blend of 11 herbs and spices, why not choose one of these foods?
A bowl of lemons: Fresh, citrusy, summery
Freshly baked cookies: Comforting, sweet, cozy
Fragrant herbs: Energizing, unisex, verdant
Homemade cherry pie: Sweet, fruity, alluring
Warm brownies: Chocolaty!
Chilled sauvignon blanc: Citrusy, peppery, refreshing

Mango sorbet: Tropical, fruity, relaxing
KFC coleslaw: Honestly, if you had to choose one item from their menu, it should be this. Lightly sweet with undertones of greenery, it’ll certainly make you smell a lot fresher than a bucket of chicken.
People of the world, we can do better. The next time you decide to pick up a bottle of sunscreen that, according to reviewers, actually smells like “urine or a baby’s diaper” (yum?), just think of the other aromatic possibilities lurking within your refrigerator.
