Food News: KFC Doublicious Sandwich Coming In July

Seems like the KFC Double Down is a hit and I’m having trouble believing it.  So much of a success that it’s going to stick around beyond it’s original May 23rd end date.  I didn’t love the Double Down, but after nearly 10 million sandwiches sold, KFC has decided to have it available through the summer.   Since I wasn’t crazy about the Double Down, I’m ready for a change.  I’m looking forward to the Doublicious.  Back in February I wrote:

Spotted in Nebraska, the KFC Doublicious Chicken Sandwich.  Details are a bit scarce but the Doublicious includes cheese, bacon some zesty sauce and available in Original Recipe or Grilled chicken. The best part seems to be that it’s served on a sweet Hawaiian bun.  I’m a big fan of Hawaiian bread.  The Doublicious combo meal was around the $5.00 area in Nebraska.

Well thanks to an inside tip from one of our readers, I now know that the Doublicious is going nationwide on July 5th.  And why is it called Doublicious?  Apparently there are 2 versions of it.  We’ll keep you posted.

    OK now I’m thinking…2 versions? Does that just mean the typical original recipe and grilled?

    For the love of god make one of them buffalo with ranch or bluecheese dressing and bacon!, no cheese nesc.

    I did like the double down. I think bread would be fine though. It would be a lot easier to eat. Though less awesome.

  5. jperonto says:

    Well obviously it’s grilled and crispy. Look at the image! “Also available in grilled”.

    I am actually excited about this sandwich! I haven’t tried the double down, because I think my already high blood pressure would go through the roof, but this one looks good. I love Hawaiian bread!

    Hawaiian bread <3
    this actually sounds kinda awesome.

    It looks like it is the same exact sandwich as the double down, only they switched out 1 chicken fillet for the bun.

    They are both the same chicken, bacon, cheese and sauce.

    Looks interesting. I haven’t tried the Double Down yet, but I’ve heard the sauce is pretty good, so I’ll probably have to give this a shot.

    The addition of the Hawaiian bread makes this seem like something I’d want to try.

  11. that kinda looks like a club version(at KFCs in Ontario, you can club any sandwich- basically add swiss cheese, bacon and tomato for around $1.50 more) of our Fresh sandwich, with a better bun, that all Ontario KFCs carry. I have a review of it on my blogspot blog, its really good surprisingly. Still best KFC sandwich we have ever had here is the zesty melt, it had bacon, pepper mayo and swiss cheese.

    I actually posted info about this on my Facebook wall and got some comments both ways. I am a healthy eater so I say blah!

    Love Hawaiian bread…looking forward to this sandwich.

    ok, now i think this is taking it a little too far. Thats too much to handle, yet im going to just have to try it to find out i guess!!!

    I work at a KFC in N.C., we just got the new equipment for the Doublicious a few days ago. We haven’t been informed as to what it includes or pricing on it either. KFC is very secretive about releasing new items. I had no idea about the Double Down until it was up on the menu.
