With the sudden popularity of this post, I would like to ask that if anyone wants to use the images, feel free, just please add a note somewhere on your blog/site crediting foodgeekery.com. Thank you!
I saw this commercial yesterday and couldn’t find anything about it online or even on the KFC website. I thought I had dreamed it up, but when it came on today I snagged it with my cellphone (sorry ’bout the quality):
You just saw the KFC Double Down Chicken Sandwich. Who dreamed this up? This is perhaps the most insane “sandwich” I have ever seen. A fried chicken patty, 2 slices of cheese, 2 slices of bacon, and another fried chicken patty. Wow. Sorry I don’t have much else to say, it is like the Monster Burger of chicken. My mind is boggled… the funny thing about this sandwich is that it is part of the “unthink kfc” advertising, which has previously only been for grilled chicken.
So, upon seeing this I did what anyone would do and drove over to KFC to buy the beast. The “meal” is $6.99, but you can buy the sandwich for a mere $4.99. The description from the horse’s mouth:
- 2 Original Recipe Filets
- Pepper Jack Cheese
- Swiss Cheese
- Colonel’s Sauce
So, what does it look like? Check out some photos:
A bit of a closeup for ya…
So, what does it taste like? Well, let me let Jess tell you:
That’s it? That is the sandwich? That’s not worth five dollars. <takes a bite> Oh… oh my God. That is the best thing ever. I don’t know what “Colonel’s Sauce” is, but it is like a party in my mouth. This is completely worth the five dollars. Unfortunately I’m going to end up weighing 700 lbs after this, but it is simply amazing.
Now, I didn’t get that orgasmic feeling from it, then again, I’m not a huge fan of fast food. So, there you have it. Thoughts on this new offering from KFC?

Now then, it looks like some people are doubting this is a true sandwich, so for SCIENCE I decided to go down and get some more shots to prove to you that yes, you can legally harden your arteries with this monster (plus, Jess is addicted to them). Here we go!
