KFC’s Double Down – C’mon Now!

In case you haven’t seen it, Kentucky Fried Chicken has launched its new “sandwich” called the Double Down.  It is essentially two fried chicken breast fillets masquerading as bread.  In between is bacon, cheese and special sauce.  I imagine the name Double Down refers to the bet you make with yourself about whether or not you will suffer a myocardial infarction from eating this mother of all gut bombs.  I cannot imagine who was responsible for the market research that supported the roll out of such a disgustingly over indulgent piece of processed junk food.  Now don’t get me wrong, my culinary sensibilities aside, I can enjoy some good ole fried chicken as much as the next guy.  But this “sandwich” seems to revel in being obstinately opposed to being even the slightest bit health conscious when it comes to diet.  What do you think?  At the very least, it will certainly contribute to the volume of people who need to seek medical care.  And that’s good for people pursuing a career in medical assistance.  Here’s another, more scathing review of this monstrosity from the SF Gate newspaper in Frisco!  Enjoy.

      Oh my goodness! This paragraph in the article from the San Francisco Gate newspaper really knocked me out when I read it in your article: Did you notice? How in one pseudo-food item, you are consuming not one, not two, but the mutated, chemically injected flesh/byproducts of fully three different distended, liquefied, industrially tortured creatures? Feel the love, pitiable animal kingdom. IT IS ABSOLUTELY HORRIFYING THAT KFC WOULD GO SO FAR AGAINST THE TIDE – WHEN FAST FOOD IS AT LEAST ATTEMPTING TO PORTRAY THEMSELVES AS HEALTH CONSCIOUS – TO PUT OUT A PRODUCT OF THIS TYPE. It transcends the insanity of the restaurants that offer $1000 burgers with 24 karat gold strands in them and the like – during a time of profound economic grief for so many families – but this KFC thing is beyond the pale. Wake up fast food lovers and smell the poison you are ingesting!

    I think the problem with fast food places is they try to re- invent themselves on a monthly basis. Whatever they feel will draw some attention to their restaurant; they will go to great lengths to do so, even if it means you will be hospitalized for a week or something worse. If it can be the next BIG thing in their book, then the sky is the limit for them. Shame on you KFC, you went from the healthy baked chicken, to a death sentence!
