KFC - Double Down


http://www.sogoodblog.com/2009/08/25/kfc-double/



Yes, it’s a “sandwich” containing bacon, cheese and Colonel’s sauce, with two fried chicken patties serving as the bread. Now some of you may be thinking, “Eick, I thought So Good was supposed to be on the cutting edge? I already read about this someplace else, why didn’t you see this sooner?” Valid question, and one the 15 (no exaggeration) people who have e-mailed me about this new product have asked.

I actually came across this last week, in the form of a post on Food Geekery that dated all the way back to July 28. But do you know why I didn’t write about it right away? I didn’t believe it. Thought it was a fake. A spoof. A hoax. No WAY a national chain is actually using pieces of chicken as buns I thought. Considering it’s been a few months since I broke a major story on So Good, despite having done it quite often last year, I thought this was my golden bullet. I was going to expose the Double Down as a grand and elaborate hoax and reap the traffic benefits as everyone praised So Good for exposing the fraud that was the Double Down. I Googled around. I read and re-read the post on Food Geekery. I freeze framed parts of the commercial on YouTube for clues that it might be a fake. At one point I even thought some of the “evidence” it was a hoax was that one of the actors in the commercial kind of, sort of, looked like one of the sketch comedy actors from Barats & Bereta.

With no clear evidence confirming or denying this products existence beyond the one initial source online, I called the location in Nebraska where Foodgeekery allegedly bought this. No answer when I called twice on Thursday. When I called back on Friday, they did answer, and informed me that yes, they carried the Double Down sandwich. Dammit. I was all primed to be the one that exposed to the world the great hoax that was the KFC Double Down. Alas, I was wrong. Dead wrong. And with that, my motivation to write about it before leaving the office vanished. The weekend awaited. That magical time of sleep, sex, drinking, more drinking, watching baseball and sleeping again. The story would have to wait, because the sandwich is real, and it’s being tested in Nebraska and Rhode Island.

They need a TRIPLE Down... Same thing but with an extra piece of "bread" (chicken) with twice the ammount of contents between (ALA: Big Mac).

I would hop on my motor bike with my twin brother and throw on our matchin shades, plaid pants, and cowboy hats and drive on to the drive thru to get me one!

That's great Josh, congratulations! I thought you looked quite a bit thinner in the face in some of those pics.

my cus just went through the drive thru at a local one and asked for it. The girl had no idea about it but when he went to pay some dude working said do you still want it? They made it for him. Still waiting for the pic or of course it never happened.

McDonalds drive thru

A Roy-al with cheese.

You don't?

Well it is the same thing as a 1/4 pounder with cheese but since you use the metric system you wouldn't know what that is.

"Oh, we have 1/4 pounders.

Oh, ok. I'll take one of those then.

Really? I would think the personal trainer in you would be horrified and disgusted.

Sorry- but this is just sick and wrong. and you're all sick and wrong for wanting to use fried chicken as bread... just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD.

No, what is sick is that McDonalds hasn't done this yet and slapped a 1/4 pounder burger patty in the middle. ;)

My first job was mcd's and even we didn't create one of those monstrosities in the smoked out weed days. We came up with some awesome sandwiches, a 2- 1/4 # hamburger as a bun would just be awesome.


2 -1/4 # burger pattys
2 slices of cheese
4- pickles
mustard
tomato
and a small hamburger patty hidden in the middle



AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA MOW DOWN ON THAT!
