Double Down is a Hit
KFC's Double Down is a hit in Canada and I must say that I'm surprised. First of all, I didn't realize Canada was getting the big fat ridiculous(ly awesome) chicken sandwich. Again.
Apparently we had the artery clogging sunuvabitch last year. And the 2011 version doesn't disappoint either. In fact it's 10% healthier with a 10% reduction in sodium! Rejoice, oh morbidly obese! Rejoice, all ye chicken & bacon lovers! Rejoice, oh haters of that confounded bread that is always getting in the way and ruining perfectly good chicken sandwiches.
This sandwich will go down in history as one of the greatest. I care not what sort of sales figures KFC reports. Today's trip to the local Kentucky Fried Chicken emporium was proof enough for me of the Double Down's success.
At 2 o'clock in the afternoon there was a line. A line. A line in my usually empty KFC. Two hours AFTER lunch.
Ahead of me stood 6 people, all ordering Double Downs. With 7 Double Downs on order, we all sat and waited while our local KFC chef poured his heart and soul into these magnificent chicken creations. Ten minutes later we made our bulging bellies (and KFC's bottom line) fatter.
