A WOMAN shared how the KFC chicken and flower bouquet was a fun, inexpensive gift for the fried chicken lover in her life.
The fried chicken chain offered the exclusive bouquet this year for Mother’s Day.
KFC announced the release of their “Buckquet” arrangement a few weeks before Mother’s Day.
It was a collaboration with Proflowers, a flower company based in San Diego, California.
The DIY gift was supposed to go on sale May 1-3, but apparently sold out within 24 hours.
Customers had to order a KFC Sides Lovers meal to receive a promotional code for the free “Buckquet”.
The “Buckquet” consisted of a dozen roses, eight skewers, a vase with the KFC logo and a Mother’s Day card.
Stephanie Nieves bought the DIY bouquet for her mother and described how the chicken needed for the arrangement had to be purchased separately.
After that, her sister arranged the flowers and chicken for her mother, who apparently loved it.
“I ordered my younger sister Sajdah to give it to my mom because I’m in Texas and they’re both in New York,” Nieves told Business Insider.
She said the meal cost $27.49 plus tax and shared photos of her mother enjoying the chicken.
“His scream was proof that this gift had been great,” said Nieves.
She’s not the only fast food lover who has turned to a restaurant chain for a memorable moment.
In February, a Florida couple made headlines after getting married on Checkers.
Victoria and Arley Smude performed their wedding ceremony in front of friends, family and a 43-foot trailer filled with spiced chicken and fries.
The bride told local news outlets that Checkers holds a special place in the couple’s hearts as it is one of the places the newlyweds interacted for the first time – although it wasn’t love at first bite.
Arley, who thought Victoria already had a boyfriend, spent the first date “avoiding her, not saying anything.”
Once the pair realized their mutual attraction, they began a relationship, making Damas’ seasoned fries and crispy chicken a vital part of their bond.
And KFC wasn’t the only fast-food restaurant offering special offers to celebrate Mom this year.
Insomnia Cookies, a bakery chain in the United States, was offering a limited-edition purple box that included a dozen assortment of cookies.
Tim Hortons, a Canadian quick-service restaurant, was offering a do-it-yourself donut kit. The kit included six donuts, frosting flavors and toppings.
At Wienerschnitzel, moms ate free with the purchase of a chili dog, small chips and a small soda, according to the store.
