THIS SANDWICH IS A "WIN/WIN" FOR ME AND MY FRIENDS OF PETA (PEOPLE EATING TASTY ANIMALS).SOMETIMES I TAKE THE BUN OFF MY DOUBLE BURGER JUST TO ENJOY THE FLAVOR AND TEXTURE OF MEAT.DURING THE "NO CARB" CRAZE,BURGER JOINTS SOLD THEIR WARES SANS BUN BUT WRAPPED IN A LETTUCE LEAF.
I WOULDN`T EAT THIS EVERY DAY,BUT I DON`T EAT ANYTHING EVER DAY.THIS LOOKS REALLY DELICIOUS,ALBIET A LITTLE MESSY.

why is everyone bashing it cuz it isn`t very healthy? You don`t but it because its "the healthy choice of you day" you buy it because its damn good. The choice to get one is yours.

"Rolling after that sandwich so he can eat it."
I actually lol`d at this.

I totally want one of these sandwiches. I agree with those who say some BBQ sauce would make it epic.
I will personally say that I can`t stand people who worry about calories. Seriously. I`ve tried a carb diet here and there, but I just usually eat normally and exercise, it works without counting numbers.
Does it look unhealthy? Then don`t eat it. There`s a diet for you.

I`ve tried their "grilled" chicken...

I swear, I want to work at KFC`s just so I can sue them for false advertising.

I`m not kidding when I say this, it`s literally just fried, then thrown on the grill for a few seconds to give it the "grill lines" look.

At least, that`s how it looks and it tastes even worse...


THIS, on the other hand... I want one....

What`s the big deal? It`s two pieces of fried chicken, which most people eat with their hands anyway. This is news???

it may look bad on the outside but here`s a thought, if they didn`t use 2 chicken fillets people would just buy 2 normal chicken sandwichs, with the bun, and eatting 2 of them would be over the current 1200 calories, kfc is trying to save you

If we can`t shun people for making bad decisions, then I have no idea what this website is for.
That being said, I`m sure I can get myself a menu advisory position at KFC now. I`ve got plans for deepfried turkey neck on a popsicle stick I`m sure they`d *gobble* up.

Ohh grow up. I completely hate chicken, and I DESPISE KFC, but come on. It`s two chicken strips and some bacon. People eat those things all the time, why is it such a big deal to hold them together and take a bite of all of them at once?

as gross as that is, and as much calories it has, and is probably really bad for you. People should be allowed to eat what they want and the food police should butt out

Just so people know:
"UK Department of Health Estimated Average Requirements (EAR) are a daily calorie intake of 1940 calories per day for women and 2550 for men."

As long as this is the only high calorie thing you eat that day, you will be fine. Still wouldn`t say have it every day...

How is 1228 calories more than a day worth? And if 600 calories is way to many then i don`t know what to say. I mean c`mon, 600 x meals a day makes only 1.8k.

Okay back to the link. I watched a video on youtube of a guy tasting it (Dan brown, the guy who teaches you how to solve rubik`s cubes) and it actually looked rather different as an actual product. But it still looked good nonetheless. Point of what i`m trying to say - I WANT

Who gives a crap if it`s healthy or not. If you buy it, you know it will eventually kill you, but you`ve decided to make your life shorter but happier, and want to go out in a euphoria of blissful yumminess.

I think it looks delicious. Heart attack on a bun, but delicious none the less!

Everyone from the highest intellectual to my autistic cousin knows fast food is dangerously high in calories, but all things in moderation or fine. So what if you go over your recommended caloric intake one day? Just balance it out with some veggies the next day, and your diet won`t be ruined. Seriously - no diet can be obliterated in one day, and it`s that kind of thinking that causes people to actually quit trying to lose weight. It`s not about what you eat as much as it is a balance between the food groups.

"the Vancouver Sun estimated that the sandwich -- two chicken fillets sandwiching Swiss and pepper jack cheeses, bacon and "the Colonel`s sauce" -- weighs in at 1,228 calories."

Yay my newspaper telling me what I want to know :P That`s more than a whole day`s worth of calories. That under 600 thing is a crock. Even if it was I wouldn`t eat it... still too many.

Splash two more layers of bacon, throw in some nacho cheese or Velveeta, a layer of deep fried BBQ potato chips, should be a best seller.

It`s not something that I, personally, would eat; but it is a good idea.
Get rid of the Bun, add more meat, and coming in at only $4.99 - Seems like a good choice.

3 Europeans have already said good things about it. Hopefully it stays that way and this doesn`t turn into an American flame thread.

Wow, that looks really good. I`m being serious, it`s going to sell like hotcakes to carnivores like me. And who cares how many calories it has, I mean who goes to KFC for a salad?

Although I am curious as to how they arrived at the name "double down" for a sandwich... is the special sauce double guaranteed to give your unborn child Down`s Syndrome if you eat the sandwich while pregnant?

looks fine to me, if you don`t want the calories, don`t go to KFC to begin with, is that such a hard concept?
