KFC’s Infamous Double Down is Back After a Decade

It’s been over a decade since KFC menus in North America were graced with the presence of the infamous Double Down “sandwich.” At the time, the debut of a bread-less sandwich, with crispy pieces of chicken instead serving as the buns, shocked the fast food system. The Double Down was something folks at the time felt comfortable seeing in a county fair setting. But on an everyday fast food menu? Such a creation was unheard of.

The Double Down was a limited time only menu item back then, fizzling off the menu quietly — until KFC Canada decided to give the people what they really want and announced the return of The Double Down at all participating KFC locations in the country.

But fans better hop on the release quickly, as the KFC Double Down will only be available for a limited time from October 4 until November 7 at KFC Canada locations.

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

kfc-double-down

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.

Dunkin’ Donuts New Glazed Donut Sandwiches Take Novelty Mainstream

donut-sandwich

While the idea of inserting sandwich innards between two glazed donuts isn’t anything new —  peep BGR and the Burger Joint’s Luther Burger and Slater’s Donut Burger, Dunkin’ Donuts may be the first mass market chain to offer the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich as an item on their menu.

Although, don’t head over to your nearest DD joint for a mouthwatering bite of sugar-laden awesome just yet. The new item is still being tested at “a few select Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants in eastern Massachusetts,” a  rep for the coffee chain told Eater.

Some have compared this indulgent dish to the KFC Double Down — the infamous breadless sandwich featuring bacon and cheese squeezed in between two pieces of chicken fillet. Except switch out the fillets for two glistening donuts and a fried egg. Mmm, how can you deny something so so good?

Here’s to hoping Dunkin’ Donuts makes their way over to California soon.

KFC Elvis Double Down Sandwich

The web has truly been ablaze lately, and I can’t help but get giddy everytime I see a recipe or concoction that blows my mind. This time around, we’re looking at the fusion of the infamous KFC Double Down and Elvis Presley’s equally notable favoring of his classic fried peanut-butter and banana sandwich. If you’re confused on how to make the sandwich, just purchase yourself a Double Down, take two pieces of toast, slather some nutbutter on a side, top it with halved bananas and slide in the original Double Down. Apparently, this fusion of flavors is not one to be missed, so check it out!

Craving: Glazed KFC Double Down Donut

Many variations of KFC’s Double Down sandwich have come out since its debut a few weeks back, but I think this one takes the cake! Two pieces of everything, chicken, bacon, and cheese, sandwiched in between a Krispy Kreme glazed donut! A champagne brunch with one of these would be money!  (Thx TC)
