New KFC Double Down Sandwich - Outside the Bun?

submitted on April 5, 2010 by HouTex in "Stores / Merchants"
When KFC introduced their new Double Down sandwich this weekend, they completely left out the bun! "It's so meaty, there is no room for the bun," will be part of their upcoming national ad campaign.

Some might question whether it really is a sandwich. It consists of two white meat chicken breast fillets with a filling of bacon, Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese with Colonel’s Sauce (a spicy mayonnaise). It was test marketed in Providence, R.I., and Omaha, Neb., for a month last summer and the company reports that public reaction was strong.

The Double Down, which will sell for around $5, comes either grilled or fried with KFC’s Original Recipe. The fried version has 540 calories, 32 grams of fat and 1,380 milligrams of sodium. The grilled version has 460 calories, 23 grams of fat and 1,430 milligrams of sodium.

Current government guidelines recommend less than 2,300 mg of sodium per day for people over age 2. Most Americans consume about 3,500 milligrams daily. An entire meal should contain no more than 600 milligrams. Acceptable fat is about 65 grams daily on a 2,000 calorie diet.

      Maybe you can ask for a Triple Down....
      Why not? The burger places have triple meat sandwiches. Big Grin

      BTW, at a recent fair, we saw chicken fried bacon, and fried avocado,
      and lots of other unlikely fried things! Razz

    KFC's new slogan:

    We didn't invent the chicken sandwich, we just made it awesome!
