Two Birds Just Debuted A Pineapple Glazed Chicken Sandwich

Andrew Gruel, founder of Slapfish, Two Birds, and Butterleaf, is constantly working to expanding his culinary empire. Gruel is known for pushing food boundaries in the best way possible – and his reinvention of fried chicken in the form of this “Inside Out” Pineapple Glazed Chicken Sandwich is just one example.

This masterpiece comes straight out of the Two Birds kitchen – a well-known Orange County eatery that uses only organic, free-range Jidori chicken.

In celebration of National Lemonade Day on August 20, Two Birds teamed up with Hubert’s Lemonade to bring you this exclusive pineapple glazed chicken sandwich. Starting with two perfectly fried pieces of Jidori chicken as the bun (yes, you heard us), this sandwich only gets more intense with every layer.

Some consider Jidori to be the Kobe beef of chicken, thanks in part to a strictly organic raising process, which gives the meat an extremely robust flavor. If you’ve never experienced Jidori chicken, it’s about time you did.  

To top it off, this inside out masterpiece is stuffed with grilled pineapple, braised pork shoulder, and shredded carrots, and is then smothered in a Hubert’s Pineapple and Ginger Lemonade Glaze for a sweet and savory finish.

If you’re looking to celebrate National Lemonade Day the Two Birds way, mark your calendars now, because this sandwich will phase out on September 3.

See you there!

KFC Double Down with Fried Chicken Buns Curiously Returns Day After 4/20


Remember when KFC’s Double Down took over every news station back in 2010? People were intrigued and appalled by the monstrous bacon and cheese sandwich that swapped its buns for two fried chicken filets.

Since then, other frankenfoods have clogged our memories. Taco Bell’s Bacon Waffle Taco, Doritos Locos Taco. Domino’s cheese-laden Chicken Crust. Jack in the Box’s Stacked Grilled Cheeseburgers. However, die-hards can argue that the Double Down was at the frontier of America’s trending love for outrageous grease bombs.

Now, it’s back. For those who weren’t ready for it four years ago or were heartbroken when it was discontinued, the Double Down returns for a limited time to KFC on April 21. The day after 4/20. Of course.
