Somewhere along the way fried chicken has stopped being appetizing for me. I just hate how greasy it’s gotten, and seeing all the oil that comes out of a piece of chicken when you bite into it makes me nauseous (yuck). So when I heard about KFC’s newest chicken sandwich the Double Down, I wasn’t too excited. Over time however, a small little voice deep down (stomach) started telling me that I must try it. Eventually this little voice grew into a loud yell, and I just couldn’t resist it anymore and so I went out to buy a Double Down combo. I didn’t know what to expect, but hoped that this sandwich would live up to all the hype I had heard about.
The combo cost me $6.99 plus tax, and is only sold in the US for now. According to KFC this sandwich features: “two thick and juicy boneless white meat chicken filets, two pieces of bacon, two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and Colonel's Sauce.” At 540 calories, a heart attack never sounded so tasty. My first impression after eating it was how delicious it really tasted, and since the chicken is pure white meat it’s not greasy at all (or at least compared to what I’m used to). The chicken combined with all the cheese, bacon and sauce made me love this sandwich. Though the combo is a little expensive I would say that as far as taste factors are concerned, it’s totally worth every penny. Finger lickin’ good!
