WTF? KFC Double Down Sandwich to go National?

They have to be kidding, this has to be some cruel joke they are doing now that Health Care has been signed.

For Americans worried about what fast food restaurants are doing to their buns, KFC has a solution — eliminate them.

Those would be sandwich buns, which you won’t find on the chain’s new Double Down. Instead, you’ll find two slabs of fried chicken holding together two pieces of bacon, two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and Colonel’s Sauce. Evidently, no vegetables were harmed in the making of this sandwich.

As reported by the Huffington Post last August, the sandwich was initially made available in two test markets — Rhode Island and Nebraska. KFC’s Double Down gamble paid off, and they’re rolling out the creation nationwide starting on April 12. Their decision was first announced on April 1, leading some to believe it was an April Fools’ joke. Turns out, the only gag involved was the reaction of vegans.

If you’re itchin’ for this chicken, there’s a countdown clock on KFC’s website, along with some surprising nutritional news. The grilled version has “only” 460 calories and 23 grams of fat, while the original recipe version has 540 calories and 32 grams of fat. That’s nowhere near some early speculation in the Vancouver Sun that one sandwich might set you back 1228 calories. Still, it might be wise to run a few extra laps before crossing the road for this chicken.
