Chicken Buns with a Side of Advil

on Oct 28, 2010 @ 10:25 am

Not sure if you guys have heard, but the KFC's Double Down sandwich arrived in Canada on Oct 18. My guy friends were ecstatic and raving about it, while my girlfriends and I stood appalled. 

What's the Double Down, you ask?
It's a heart-clogging sandwich where the bread is replaced by fried chicken breasts, surrounding layers of bacon, cheese and mayo.

Surprisingly, at 540 calories, 30 grams of fat and 1,740 milligrams of sodium, these numbers are lower than many other burgers already in the market.

See the news article and stats here.

Would you try this? and if you have, what did you think?
(This is kind of making me hungry... :P)

Girl, this is a "chicken burger" (literally) made by a guy for the guys! :-)

I think Popeyes has something like it already, and I (am ashamed to say that I) tried it..and happily did not like it.

There are enough unhealthy things I LOVE.... I am grateful for every small tiny unhealthy thing that I don't like... :-p

I very rarely eat fast food so I would never try this. It's pretty much an excuse to eat chicken with your hands...

I don't eat deep fried food. I think my arteries hardened a little just from looking at it!

Not in a million years! on Oct 28, 2010 @ 02:58 pm

This looks like a heart attack on a plate. I'm surprised there are only 540 calories! I predict many upset stomachs!

I'm in awe... on Oct 28, 2010 @ 05:08 pm

No wonder you girls are so hot! I love your discipline!!! I'm gonna print what you three said and keep it in my wallet to take out and remind myself every time i crave something deep :-|

No way! on Oct 29, 2010 @ 12:07 am

My boyfriend loved it!My son said it was gross.

I'm guilty on Nov 02, 2010 @ 09:50 am

My boyfriend and I shared it just because I was scared to have a heart attack. We didn't eat it with bacon because I don't eat pork so I guess that took out half of the taste in it. More or less, I'm guilty of enjoying the double down burger. I'm a sucker for deep fried foods <3

It looks vile... on Nov 11, 2010 @ 06:37 pm

I sincerely hope that this is not every guy's dream meal. Honestly a guy who craves one of these over a delicious pasta could drop from being a 10 to being a 3 in seconds for me (10 being dreamboat 0 being NEVER would I ever). I like a guy with taste ;)

I'd have to agree that just looking at this might have clogged up my arteries a bit. My husband agreed that it was disgusting, too. This seems like one of those type of foods that makes you gain 10lbs in one sitting, then taking 2 months to recover from.

Even though it's only 540 calories, can you imagine how much fat, saturated fat, and carbs it has? Last time I had KFC (or fried chicken) was about 5 years ago and I got the worst stomach ache I've ever had in my life, so never again!

I can't imagine this being someone's dream meal, I don't see how you wouldn't feel like a big pile of crap after eating it, so what's the point if it makes you feel bad? ><
