Hold Em or Fold Em….Just Don’t Double Down

Anybody seen this new menu item from KFC? It’s basically a bacon and cheese sandwich but with fried chicken breasts instead of bread (also available in a grilled version). I know, great for all the low carb diets out there. What do you think? Is it a culinary train wreck or will it become one of your new guilty pleasures (only in extreme moderation – I hope).  Nutritional information below...

OK, I have to admit I tried this thing. When it comes to crazy food concoctions like fried Twinkies, chicken fried bacon, and Krispy Kreme chicken sandwich I am both repulsed and intrigued at the same time.

I can honestly report that the Double Down is as disgusting as it looks and sounds. In addition to being hastily prepared (all of the cheese and bacon were balled up on one side of the sandwich) it also contained a slather of some mysterious reddish orange sauce. Don’t even want to guess what it was supposed to be…
