From KFC's Website.....
"The new KFC Double Down sandwich is real! This one-of-a-kind sandwich features two thick and juicy boneless white meat chicken filets (Original Recipe® or Grilled), two pieces of bacon, two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and Colonel's Sauce. This product is so meaty, there’s no room for a bun!"
There was a lot of hype this spring surrounding the US release of this "sandwich" and now the Double Down has finally made it to Canada! My friend Richard wanted to honour the Canadian release of this breadless mass of two strips of bacon, cheese and gooey sauce mashed between two slabs of fried chicken....so he hosted a "Double Down" Party.
He called KFC and even had the six sandwiches (6.99 each) ordered for delivery. The KFC employee applauded his ordered and stated "I had my first one today and let me tell you, once you have one you'll never go back."
The KFC Original Double Down has some impressive statistics. This quasi-sandwich with Orginal Recipe batter packs in 540 calories, 32 grams of fat, and 1380 mg of sodium.
Despite the health risks....this group enthusiastically grabbed their double down's and dug in.....
It was love at first bite for these daring double downers. I asked for their first impressions and here were their reviews....
"It's actually really good."
"I wanna make out with it"
"My arteries are slowly closing"
"The best part is the saltiness, cheesiness and the bacon"
"I have the meat sweats"
"I think the secret ingredient is love"
