Ready for a road-trip through South and North Carolina —Don’t forget this Fried Chicken map now on sale.

For $9.99, you will be able to bird-dog the fried chicken your heart is desiring with the map created by E.D.I.A.

The company has already published several maps for North Carolina including a beer and BBQ map, Amanda Fisher, company co-founder, previously said. She said this is the company’s first venture into South Carolina.

Fisher said the map gives fried chicken lovers details to help them find the right place for their taste-buds.

“Each restaurant has a symbol, and it tells you a lot about that dish,” Fisher said.

Styles highlighted in the map include traditional bone-in fried, chicken and biscuits, chicken and waffles, dipped, dredged and combination batter.

It also tells users what type of oil was used in the frying method. Along with details such as address, hours, contact information, cash-only, take-out only and if it is a cafeteria- or buffet line-style experience.

The map goes beyond just highlighting restaurants, Fisher said. She said it adds chicken-related roadside attractions and facts.

One of those facts: There were once tests to put a chicken on Mars that took place in South Carolina.
