KFC Has a Double Down Hot Dog and It’s as Terrifying as It Sounds


Back in 2010, when Kentucky Fried Chicken announced the release of its Double Down sandwich, everyone was in a huff about how such a fattening concept could make it onto the menu. Fast forward a few years and a few satisfied customers, and the Double Down has become a consistent staple in the KFC brand.

Now it looks like KFC Philippines is taking the next step toward the evolution of the Double Down with the new Double Down Dog. The dog is made with a fried chicken breast patty that’s wrapped around a hot dog. Because replacing buns with fried meat is the whole point, right? The dog also has a choice of ketchup, mayo and cheese.

Business Insider reported that only 50 Double Down Dogs are available for purchase on Jan. 26 and 27 at participating locations. This means our readers currently in the Philippines might not even be able to get one after this sentence.

Better luck tomorrow.

A few individuals have already posted images of the hot dog on social media. It looks like a beast.

Sonic Aims for Hearts with Quarter Pound Cheesy Bacon Footlong


Sonic has added yet another hot dog to their menu. The fast food chain, specializing in drive-in dining, has developed a new hot dog aimed for both bacon and cheese lovers. It’s not too hard to guess what they’re calling it.

The Cheesy Bacon Footlong is made with a quarter pound foot-long hot dog. It’s topped with a cheddar cheese sauce and, of course, chunks of bacon. While a cheese-covered foot-long might not be the easiest thing to handle in a vehicle, it shouldn’t deter the fast food-inclined.

If anyone’s looking for a Lady and the Tramp option for this generation of fast food-loving bacon eaters, this could be the perfect candidate. You’re eating in the car with a date, who cares how cheesy it’ll look. No pun intended.

Sonic patrons can find the Cheesy Bacon Footlong at all participating Sonic locations. At $3.99, the hot dog is served as a combo with tots, the potato kind, of course.

Veggie Patch: Meatless Meals [OUR LOOK]

For as much as meat is trending in the last couple of years, pretty soon we’re going to run out of livestock to feed our animal urges. Maybe it’s time we think about an alternative. For a carnivore like myself, the thought of going vegetarian is something that terrifies me almost as much as dying alone, or birds.

But if there was anything to ease the transition from meat to meatless, Veggie Patch has the secret. Now, I know I throw the word “delicious” around a lot in my stories, so I’ll probably go with another word to describe Veggie Patch: Gratifying.

Why “gratifying” you ask? The brand specializes in meatless products, as well as vegetarian alternatives to popular dishes that contain meat. That means you can binge a pretty fair amount on their food and not feel the familiar pain in your chest that comes from meat loving. You can get creative with your meals, chop up a few veggies, throw in some fruit, and start eating. And honestly, it tastes pretty great!

A few examples of the popular products that Veggie Patch has to offer are their Meatless Burgers, Veggie DogsFalafel Chickpea Balls (for the vegans), and Meatless Meatballs. They also offer a variety of different snacks that include Broccoli Cheese Bites (which goes great with Sriracha), Zucchini Sticks, and Potato and Mushroom Puffs. Veggie Patch has a pretty wide selection.

So if you’re thinking about trying something new, or maybe even on the brink of a very serious dietary life-choice, give Veggie Patch a chance. You won’t regret it.
