Apr 10 2010KFC Double Down Sandwich Drops Monday


We first reported on Kentucky Fried Cruelty's Double Down sandwich back in August of last year, and I thought it was real then. But apparently not, apparently it's only getting real on Monday. And for those of you that didn't know, it's bacon between two fried chicken "buns," with special sauce (arguably spunk) and pepperjack cheese. Mmmm, I'm dryheaving already!

The sandwich will be available in two forms. The Original Recipe sandwich will set you back about 540 calories, 32g of fat and 1380mg of sodium. The not-as-bad-for-you Grilled Double Down totals 460 calories, 23g of fat and 1430mg of sodium.

Well, it doesn't sound like the worst thing you could eat. But it is up there. Right next to poison and a really jealous bear's girlfriend out. Which -- okay I just puked.

HEART ATTACK!!! I think I've seen this somewhere else...

check out this EPIC geekologie battle

I think the best thing that will come out of this, is the fat asses who are on carb-free meal plans who will claim this is the healthiest thing on the menu that fits into their diet restrictions.

epic cholesterol

Why put out a press release for such a ridiculous product on April 1st in the first place ?

That thing looks sic, an not in a cool way

The Wendy's Triple Baconator has 1,300 calories and 72 grams of fat.

Another point. Why go though the whole deal with how healthy kfc is now with baked chicken and then the 400 calories meal then announce this thing ?

@8 Different parts of the menu have to appeal to different demographics. Not everybody's interested in eating healthy. Sure, Taco Bell introduced the stupid "Drive Thru diet" thing for Soccer Moms, but the restaurant still appeals to the guys who wanna get full for cheap with stuff like the 89 cent beefy 5-layer burrito.

In essence, it's all about targeting as many people in the population as possible.

I don't like pepperjack cheese, everything else I'd eat, but probably nothing else for the rest of the day. Who'm I kidding, I'd eat 2, probably puke from all that grease, then spend an hour at the gym. Provided they'd switch the cheese to monterey jack.

I would eat the ass outta that.

Now you people know why heatlh care reform is such a big deal...there is a bigger picture

@4, Flour is carb, isn't it? I don't think it can be carb-free if the chicken's breaded.

three words... OM NOM NOM

I don´t want to raise expectations everyone, but It´s been for sale in Costa Rica for a while now(i´m in Costa Rica by the way), and it has become my favorite, it´s very good, but I think the one we have here has no cheese, the sauce is very good... I bet all of you are gonna love it.

I don't know if my city was part of the test marketing for this, but I'm ashamed to admit that I tried one a year ago. It was...



@3 m44_CatRaper, LOL great pic. Kudos to the artist.

@11 Pistol Pete, you're sayin you'd spread those meaty buns and tongue out all the crunchies and gooies stuck between.

You'd probably also like this:

@18 Dishy, your pic's blocked here, and by your description I half expected it to be something disturbing like goatse.

However, after searching google for the filename and seeing the thumbnail, I must say I would also like that.

Is this really new? I ate one of this at my KFC roughly last November... It wasn't really what I expected, nor as filling as I would have wished

@19 Durand, what's goatse? Hmm, let me google it, OHH NOO, AWWAFRA, why didn't you warn ME!!!??

Anyway, I'll bet you'd like this:
(warning for everyone but Durand: goatse + an apple netbook)

I just tried one of these today due to the hype about them...

Let me say this.. Me being the fat bastard i am... This is freakin AWESOME!!!!!!!

hamburger, fast food, just for snack

the double down is coming April 12, not April 1

April 12th = My Birthday ^ ^

Why has GW gone all negative all of a sudden?

@26 He moved to California; that would depress anyone.

Still way healthier than a Whopper.

You can order it in Costa Rica and it doesn't taste good.....


I'm buying 5 as soon as they go on sale.

1 for myself and 4 for my coworkers!

They're either going to love it, or I get to eat more for myself!

Are people RETARDED, that sounds awesome!!!!! Only a cali butt plugger would talk so much crap about food... dead animals are good!!! What can you say... abuse has flavor :-)

It's a REAL HEART ATTACK waiting to happen!

meat is the new bread!

I had one in New York Penn Station. Sauce is a tangy
mayo, cheese is probably not really necessary. not really that fatty.

Tasty though, next time I'll get two.

So happy about the tags on this one. If only the fast food industry was as forward thinking as our dear geekologie writer...

Hey, CRC, I'm from Costa Rica too... As said, it was pretty meh when I tried it...

i want to take it behind the middle school and get it pregnant.

Slap that baby on a nice toasted kaiser and I'll be interested.

This chicken sandwich is not only a junk food but it also comes with a lot of calorie, this junk foods can lead to the bad cholesterol, which is very harmful to us in the near future.

I'll have what he/she is having....

A lot less calories than I thought it would be, the grilled version might be good for low carb dieters.

And those seeking to gum up their innards and shat orange stuff for a week.

Holy Cardiac Arrest Batman ! !

This looks soooooo good. I can just see myself and the bubbling fat all over me. MMMM.

So after seeing this post, I had to go eat one of these sandwiches from the heavens. I must say that it was pretty damn good. I was given a disclaimer by the local KFC crew that I could possibly have a heart attack by eating this sandwich. I was told by a friend to eat this sandwich outside of the Emergency Room at the local hospital if I were to go into cardiac arrest.

That did not happen. But word to the wise ---- make sure you are near a toilet when eating this thing. It will give you the shits!

I just had one for breakfast. It was amazing!

this is win

Had one yesterday... it didn't live up to my expectations. Definately wasn't worth the long term damage I'm sure will do.



Tried one Monday. Wasn't bad even though it filled the car with that KFC grease smell.
