Roses and chocolates? That’s old news when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts.

This year, KFC wants you to give the gift of a fried chicken scratch ‘n’ sniff Valentine’s Day card instead. It’s what the Colonel would have wanted.

Per QSR, the cards will be available in participating KFC restaurants beginning February 12 across the U.S. The four retro-inspired valentines mix sweet love lines with “the intoxicating scent of fried chicken.”  Those four options?

“You have the secret recipe to my heart.”

“I fell in love the first moment I slaw you.”

“We’re two peas in a chicken pot pie.”

“I’d be with you all the time if only I could. You make me feel so finger lickin’ good.”

So how do you acquire these chicken-scented love letters? Just buy a $10 Chicken Share, which also happens to be a solid selection for two people. It’s the ultimate Valentine’s Day for a very specific kind of person who wants to spend Valentine’s Day at KFC.

Unfortunately, according to Eater, the cards smell more like “pee” and “bad ramen seasoning” than they do fried chicken. So they may not have the intended effect in the end.
