The future of marketing gimmicks is apparently making stuff that smells like your food. KFC has been doing it for a bit with chicken-scented Valentines and firelogs, and Jimmy Dean came out with a sausage-smelling wrapping paper.
Del Taco is now jumping in the game as well with bars of French fry-scented soap, aptly named “Eau De French Fry.”

The soap is meant to promote the new Fresh Faves Box Meals at Del Taco, each of which contain their crinkle-cut fries. Each bar of soap is “lightly scented” with French fry aroma, so you’ll feel the scent around you but won’t be necessarily embalmed in it.
Only a limited amount of these French fry soaps will be sold online. If you really want to cop one, they’ll drop on March 13th at Del Taco’s web store, costing $3.95 per bar plus shipping and handling.
