KFC Double Down Sandwich

What do you do when you want a sandwich but have no bread?  How about using some fried chicken for bread…That’s exactly what you get with the KFC Double Down.  You take bacon, Pepper Jack cheese, Swiss cheese and Colonel’s Sauce and put all that in between 2 Original Recipe chicken filets.  Food blog Food Geekery discovered this sandwich last month and now I’m on the hunt to actually find one.  UPDATE: It’s nationwide so I tried both versions and here’s my review.

It’s called the “Double Down” because there’s 2 of everything…2 slices of cheese, 2 strips of bacon and 2 pieces of chicken.

    That is disgusting!

  2. That needs to be on “this is why you’re fat”
    Jesus Christ.

  3. Oh wow. Just went over there and it’s totally the first entry. Hilarious.

  4. Sam I Am says:

    All that’s missing is a side of gravy to dip it in. Bleech.

  5. Josh says:

    What they need to do is put that between two grilled cheese sandwiches…if I ever go into a KFC which is rarely…I’ll totally end up getting that

  6. SkippyMom says:

    1. How in the hell do you eat this?

    And more importantly:

    2. Just how many people do you know you will see dipping this in gravy or ranch?

    Jeesh, this is just bad. Bad.

    Looks gross, but it sounds amazing! What are the nutritionals on this?

  8. Jess says:

    This just in! I ate this motherkiller and lived to tell the tale. Review is on the blahg.

  9. maxchain says:

    I agree! That sounds completely gross and unhealthy and I’m totally not considering going to get one right now.

  10. rob says:

    It’s actually pretty healthy cause there’s no bread

  11. DHL says:

    I am declaring shenanigans and calling this fake! The Unhungry side of KFC? really?

  12. DHL says:

    I looked around the internet (google) and the only reference to this sandwich all point back to the same source foodgeekery.com .

  13. Raiders757 says:

    I find it funny that some people find this gross.

    Do these people not like to eat a chicken sandwich with cheese and bacon?

    Would it be “gross” if it were two hamburger patties with cheese and bacon?

    Is it “gross” that no carb burgers are offered at Wendy’s? (no bun)

    The only thing that could possible be “gross”, is the Colonel’s Sauce, because more than likely, as with all fast food sauces, it’s mayo based.

    If boneless fried chicken breast is so “gross”, why is it so popular to serve them on a bun to begin with?

    If I didn’t order fries, I could eat two chicken sandwiches in one sitting. Would I want to eat them in such a way, without the bun? Well, I really don’t need the processed carbs in the buns, so why not?

    You could actually take this concoction home, and feed two people with it, or even eat twice. Just seperate the chicken, and eat it on a plate.

  14. Yum Yucky says:

    That cheese looks like nastiness. That’s why I think it’s gross.

  15. Justin says:

    This CANNOT be real.

  16. Adam Bomb says:

    Unhealthy? Yes. Gross? No way! I think it looks tasty as hell. I probably wouldn’t get one, though. Two pieces of deep-fried chicken with bacon and cheese seems like a bit too much for me. I love the chicken bacon swiss from Arby’s, and this reminded me of that.

  17. Justin says:

    This would’ve been better between two buns. As of now, it’s just a gimmick. Who would want to be caught eating this, especially on lunch?

  18. Swampfox says:

    This is a miracle of modern technology. It like an iPhone…. if you don’t already have one, you want one.

  19. Adam Bomb says:

    @Justin: I would guess that most people buying this will order it at the drive-thru, well disguised, and take it home to eat it in shame and privacy. That’s what I would do, anyway.

  20. Kelley says:

    Just to point out: according to the LA Times online, this is only being tested in the Omaha, NE and Providince, RI markets for now. I went to my local KFC (in Arizona) and there was no hint of it on the menu. But hell yes I’ll eat one, if it comes out nationwide.

  21. cress says:

    How do you eat this again?
    Do you hire someone to feed it to you, thus avoiding a rolled-up sleeve drenched in grease?
    Maybe a fork and knife, with a FRIGGING plate to collect all the greasy oil, would be a nice touch.

  22. Tim AumAn says:

    what this sandwich needs is a fried egg. Breakfast, baby.

  23. Rick says:

    I like how so many people here bad mouth this sandwich. This is America. 2 out 3 of the people on here are overweight so I know there are fatties on here who would eat it.
