Chestnuts roasting on a chicken fire? Eleven secret herbs and spices nipping at your nose? If that sounds like music to your ears, it's possible with KFC's present to us all: a chicken-scented firelog.

The KFC 11 Herbs & Spices Firelog is designed to smell like the chain's famous fried chicken. It's an annual product release, weirdly enough, and this year it's sporting an enhanced extra-crispy scent (yes, really). It's available for sale only on Walmart's website for about $16 — cheaper than a bucket of chicken.

Also new this year: A sweepstakes to win a three-day stay in a KFC-themed cabin. If you win, you and up to seven guests could stay in a three-story, 7,000-square-foot luxury cabin in Kentucky with a theater room, pool, hot tub, and plenty of chicken-inspired decor (and scented firelogs, of course). Purchase one of the logs to enter, or download the KFC app if a chicken log is not on your Christmas list.

There's one bit of fine print to keep in mind: The 11 secret herbs and spices scent only lasts until the log is burned. So enjoy the smell and retro packaging until you get sick of craving fried chicken — then burn it. Oh, and one last helpful reminder from the log's product description: "Please do not put your face directly into the fire in attempt to smell fried chicken!"
