"Suntan lotion always smells like lotion", KFC CMO Kevin Hochman told Business Insider.

Their tagline is, fittingly, "The only skin that should be extra crispy this summer is on your fried chicken". "So we thought - why not make it smell like fried chicken?".

According to KFC, the SPF 30 rating sunscreen would help you protect yourself from the sun all the while leaving you smelling like the famous 11 herbs and spices. "In fact, I'm pretty confident nobody ever asked for this".
