Double Down

Odds are if you have a TV you have seen a commercial for KFC's Double Down sandwich. Sandwich is a misnomer as it has no bread or bun. My interest was piqued by the ads. I wondered how it would taste, but I just couldn't bring myself to try one. A couple of times I almost pulled into KFC for one but then reason won out. It just doesn't look that good.

Now I don't have to try one. Stig decided to have one and he didn't sound impressed. In fact, he pronounced it too salty. Considering Stig uses more salt in cooking than I do, and likes things salted more than I do, for him to say it was too salty would probably equate to me saying it is way too fucking salty.

Desire to try one ... gone.


  1. It had some interesting textures, and the cheesy part tasted okay, but your mouth is overwhelmed by the salt that seems to permeate the chicken breasts. And the bacon was kind of rubbery, with a taste to match. I was curious about the "sandwich," and now realize curiousity doesn't always have to be satisfied.

  2. Well said.

    According to the wikipedia link it has ALL the salt required for a day in the one "sandwich". Damn!

  3. I did try A&W's Spicy Mama burger ... it was great. Nice after taste. :)
