When you go to sleep at night, don’t you wish you could cuddle up with the Colonel?

Now you can.

KFC just launched a retail store of “finger lickin’ good” apparel and home décor. From  pillowcases printed with Sanders’ face to socks stamped with drumsticks, fast-food fans will find the items quite amusing.

The fried-chicken swag starts at $8 for a pair of socks to $20 for an over-sized chicken sandwich lapel pin. A framed 11″x14″ print of KFC’s famous mashed potatoes is priced at $80.

“Our fans were craving a way to embrace the fried chicken lifestyle, and KFC Ltd. gives them the opportunity to let their colonel flag fly,” said Steve Kelly, KFC U.S. director of media and digital, in a statement.

Perhaps the most unusual item on the new site is a meteorite cut to look like the Zinger check sandwich. Retailing for $20,000, the item is said to be a joke — the side does, in fact, reject attempts to add the product to the shopping cart — though there surely have to be crazy fried-chicken fans out there would would spring for the novel chicken-shaped space rock.

All items are available for a limited time, but the brand is already planning future product rollouts.
