Turns out meat is the new bread. Thanks to a loyal blog reader for alerting me to this all-in-one vegan nightmare, cardiology freak show and only in America culinary death missle that virtually punches you directly in the organs. KFC introduced in several test markets their “Double Down” sandwich.
This “sandwich” consists of two deep fried chicken fillets wrapped around bacon, cheese and some type of sauce. The chicken is the bread. You heard me — instead of bread, they use two pieces of fried chicken. Even Robert Atkins would push this away as being just a bit too meaty, dontcha think?
The name, “Double Down” (which won out over “Double Bypass”), is linked to the chances of developing heart disease during that meal (easily doubled). And, after signing the required medical release form KFC requires, you can listen carefully and actually hear your own arteries hardening.
