My Take on the New KFC Double Down



For those who aren't sure as to whether they should take a turn into the next Kentucky Fried Chicken for the new Double Down sandwich, I'm here to tell you that it's certainly worth the risk. Yesterday morning I was challenged by a co-worker to experience the Colonel's new craft. As one who's conquered high risk eating challenges before, I believed I was due to try something different, something new, something that has changed the concept of a sandwich forever.

When I first walked in to order I looked around to see if there were any others in for the Double Down. Two guys were sitting to the right with an order of popcorn chicken and mac 'n cheese. I thought it would only be appropriate for someone to immediately escort them out on this monumental day...but then...the semi-decent looking girl in front of me proceeded to confidently place her order: "Double Down with large fries and some biscuits on the side." Before I was able to ask where women like her are hiding in everyday society...it was my turn to face the music. Time to get focused...there was no turning back from here.

Five minutes later, I'm staring at the best invented food combination since corn dogs. I opened the box to find the sandwich to be a little smaller then expected without weighing in the density factor. I definitely overlooked the special Colonel sauce implemented with the product, which turned out to be nothing short of majestic. The only real flaw in the special design was the inability to get a firm grip on the chicken "bun." Just comes with the territory I suppose in light of the fact that it is fried chicken. Overall a great experience in the restaurant, and one of the more enjoyable lunches I've had in quite some time.

Here's where the going got tough...It hit me like a ton of bricks on the walk back to work. It was sort of like desperately needing a shower en route to completing a walk of shame...but this time KFC is what you don't wanna be running in to anytime soon. Around 3:00 PM I reached full circle in the bathroom.

That's when I knew I was going to be okay.

The Double Down is something everyone should experience. No other chain fast food sandwich can provide the physical and mental leaps and bounds it took to feast on this unearthly, unique invention. Don't sit and let the Double Down pass you by...I urge you to seize the moment and head to KFC.
