KFC Double-Down Report and Review

It's finally here (for a limited time)! KFC's new Double-Down sandwich meatwich:


This taste test almost didn't happen. The gentleman who works the drive-thru window at my local KFC was wearing a shirt that had so much spillage on it that it could feed the children, all of em. Anyway...I told myself that he didn't make my food and braved the task.

I arrived home, opened the somewhat greasy box that housed the unusual concoction known as the Double-Down which consists of two boneless fried chicken filets held together by cheese and something called "the Colonel's sauce"...oh yeah and there's bacon too. I pulled the meatwich out of the box and took a bite....it's. . .okay.

The chicken filets were on the dry side. It's more cheesy than bacon-y. I don't swoon for cheese. "The Colonel's sauce" tastes really salty. [Enter that's what she said joke here] Ew, did I really just write that?

I'm not a fast food snob. I eat fast food. I like fast food. I just like wearing other pants besides sweatpants, so I don't eat it that often. Also, I'm a label reader. A lot has been made of the Double-Down's 540 calories. I checked out the competition:

Fast Food Calorie Comparison


Wendy's Crispy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich: 460 calories

McDonald's Premium Crispy Chicken Classic Sandwich: 530 calories

KFC Double-Down: 540 calories

McDonald's Big Mac: 540 calories

Hardee's 1/4 lb Little Thickburger: 570 calories

Burger King Whopper: 670 calories

Jack in the Box Homestyle Ranch Chicken Club Sandwich: 700 calories

Hardee's Big Chicken Fillet Sandwich: 710 calories

Burger King Tendercrisp Chicken Sandwich: 800 calories

You get the idea. Though the Double-Down is not being marketed as a low-carb menu item (that I've seen), it's worth noting that it only has 11 carbs. A Bacon Ranch salad with grilled chicken at McDonald's has 12 carbs. Also worth noting, the Double-Down is high in sodium (1380 mgs). Newsflash: fast food is loaded with Na.

Bottom line: I don't get the name. It tastes like chicken...and no, I couldn't finish it:
