Not sure what the outrage is about as pretty much everything at Ye Olde Casual Dining Chain Restaurant (including salad) hits for about twice the calories that the Double Down Sandwich does.

Smart bit of stunt marketing by KFC though.

and an extra large serving of Pepsi

eh it probably wouldn't be bad every once in a while but seeing as I have probably gone to fast food places less than 10 times in the last 4-5 years I think I'm good.

I don't find it outrageous, but ridiculous. I'll admit that thing looks good, but it's just entertaining to see what america concocts.

It's delicious. Nebraska was a test state for the sandwich. It is incredibly messy and pretty greasy...but totally worth it.

Give it a try once in your life. Just don't make a habit out of it.

EDIT: I want to say that I've only had it ONCE. While I'm fat, it's not b/c of abundant junk food. I really try not to eat fast food and when I do I try to make it local stuff. A buddy of mine (who is pole-thin) is addicted to KFC and wanted to try this when he saw a commercial.

If you check the nutrition info on this, this is only 500ish calories. The double six dollar burger at carls jr has 3 times of that.

And yes I am going to try this one out, just for the sake of it.

Check the Sodium on that thing. Eat an equivalent of that burger and be sure to raise your blood pressure the next morning. Calories don't justify anything besides the fat you'll be gaining, and yes fat can kill you over time but it's the chemicals it contains that really packs the punch in your arteries.

man..... if only that wasn't bacon. Maybe a roast beef sandwich using the two chicken fillets as the "bread". Or a hamburger in the same vein..... I doubt that thing will ever hit NJ, but if it ever does (or if I head out west), You better believe I'll try it.....a couple....hundred... times.

For the most part if you really want to question US food, just look at Steak challenges (eat 4lbs of steak, sometimes more, and you eat for free), plate sized Hamburgers (I forgot how much these weight but lets just say it makes 4lbs of steak look like nothing), and lastly, the "We'll deep fry anything for you" stores.

Again, I have to say the same thing, the double $6 at carls jr is much more destructive in terms of sodium as well.

Damn that looks good! KFC's walking distance from my house. I just might have to check it out. Seriously, if you don't eat this crap everyday, what's the harm?
