Have you had your Double Down today?

The Colonel says you don't need any buns. Just fried breasts oozing with cheese and bacon.

KFC, not content with you buying a bucket of fried chicken, has decided to invade and clog up sandwich land with its Double Down. What is a Double Down you ask? KFC has decided to defy definition (and your heart’s ability to pump blood) by saying that two pieces of fried chicken, standing in for the bread, holding together bacon and cheese is a “sandwich.”

 

Webster Dictionary defines a “sandwich” as the following:

1 a : two or more slices of bread or a split roll having a filling in between b : one slice of bread covered with food
2 : something resembling a sandwich; especially : composite structural material consisting of layers often of high-strength facings bonded to a low strength central core

Notice that the Double Down could sort of fit the second definition, which is kind of disturbing because that sounds more like it is describing industrial metallurgy rather than something to eat. It is clear by that definition that no bread equals no sandwich. Despite that fact, KFC was able to be relatively healthier than McDonald’s Crispy Chicken Club Sandwich. Check it out here.

However, saying you are healthier than McDonalds  is like saying you live in a warmer climate than the North Pole and you live in Alaska (then again if you are some idiot in Alaska you might make that comparison).

Anyway, despite  its definition-defying status are you gonna try the Double Down? Have you tried it?  Are you gonna Double Down on your stomach today? To find your nearest KFC click here. Let us know how it tastes!
