The *New* KFC Double Down

A little late, but I have to do it….

Kentucky Fried Chicken, or KFC for short (depending on you generation), just introduced the world’s first bunless sandwich called the Double Down. This sinfully satisfying concoction consists of two strips of bacon, two slices of cheese — Monetary and pepper jacks — and Colonel’s secret sauce (yes, they have one and no, you can’t get the recipe for it. It IS, well, a secret.) layered between two pieces of chicken filet be it grilled or the original recipe. As the company brags about its sandwich: “it’s so meaty, there’s no room for a bun!”

This is definitely NOT for the health conscious. According to KFC’s website, the Double Down Sandwich contains 540 calories, 32g fat, and 1,380mg sodium using the Original recipe chicken. The Grilled version is not much better. That’ll run you 460 calories, 23g fat, and 1,430mg sodium. Good enough to make the Atkins diet enthusiast very happy!
