This Sunday, May 23, was to have been the final day for grease and salt lovers everywhere to get their hands on the KFC Double Down, which for the two of you just waking from comas is a bacon and cheese sandwich that uses fried chicken as the bread. But before you go and unclog your arteries, KFC has just announced that the Double Down ain’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Over the past couple months, I’ve written at some length about KFC’s Double Down sandwich, a culinary accident looking for a place to happen. The only only saving grace from my point of view was that it was slated to be available only for a limited time. Well, the Double Down has been so popular that it would seem that’s it not going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, the Double Down should be available at your local
vomitorium KFC through the summer. Amazing, the crap we’ll put into our bodies, ain’t it??
Of course, this being a democracy and all, Americans are free to stuff whatever they choose into their mouths. Some (severely and irretrievably depressed) Americans, lacking the cojones to kill themselves, will probably rely on KFC to help them with the process. At close to 1200 calories and somewhere in the neighborhood of 90 grams of fat (and God only knows how much sodium), a couple Double Downs a day ought to do the trick in relatively short order.
Then again, bacon DOES make everything better….
