Wow. I don’t know what to say about KFC this morning. I once got really sick after eating KFC wings, so am perhaps over-cautious about their products. And I do admit their snackers look good to me, but they have really outdone themselves this time. Their new product, the Double Down, is only available in limited markets (two cities at this point), and for good reason.  They need to give this idea some deep consideration before unleashing it on an unsuspecting America.

The Double Down, you see, is a bacon and cheese sandwich with fried chicken filets for buns. Let me say that again: FRIED CHICKEN FOR BUNS! I know, this is the kind of thing you’d expect me to stand up and cheer for, but I just can’t. Maybe it’s a mood or a phase I’m going through, but the idea of eating two pieces of fried chicken with bacon, cheese and sauce snuggled between them, with my bare hands no less, is enough to make my stomach turn. Yep, there it goes, turning away.

Thank you, Chrissy. I’ll be on the lookout for this potential heart attack to invade our fair city.
