    KFC's new 'Double Down' sandwich swaps bun for two deep-fried chicken breasts, extra calories

    KFC’s newest “sandwich” is a heart-stopping creation that seems literally to die for: it layers two kinds of cheese with bacon and oozes “Colonel’s sauce.” The twist? Instead of bread, two deep-fried chicken breasts round out the calorific concoction.
    Dubbed the Double Down, the sandwich is in test markets so far, which means that only overeaters in Providence, Rhode Island, and Omaha, Nebraska, can get their greasy fill. The buzz is that it’s got more than an entire day’s worth of the recommended allowance for fat, cholesterol, sodium and protein, according to an analysis in the Vancouver Sun.
    “Independent labs are estimating that it has around 1,200 calories and over 50 fat grams, based on what’s in the other KFC sandwiches,” says Men’s Health food and nutrition editor Matt Goulding, co-author of “Eat This, Not That: Best and Worst Foods in America.”
    “What you’re looking at is a sandwich that has more than half the calories you should eat in a day, topped by a sauce that is no doubt some deleterious mix of oil, eggs and a bunch of food additives. The only thing you’re doubling down on here is waistline expansion.”
    KFC public relations rep Rick Maynard responded to experts' guesstimated calorie counts by providing estimated figures of 590 calories and 31 grams of fat for the sandwich. He said when the Sun ran its numbers, it calculated the nutrition info using two Original Recipe breasts, which are chicken on the bone, while the new sandwich uses Original Recipe filets.
    The sandwich has been selling for about three weeks, according to Canwest News Service, which reports that the management at one KFC outlet is saying that the “sandwich” had exceeded expectations.
    The Double Down costs $6.99, and a TV commercial for it running in the Midwest notes that it has “so much 100 percent premium chicken we didn’t have room for a bun,” according to CanWest News service.
    Goulding says what’s surprising is that KFC, which recently seemed to be trying to build an image of a healthier fast food chain, would debut such a cardiologist’s nightmare.
    “KFC recently took the word 'fried' out of its name and had been showing some good signs of turning around its bad image,” Goulding says. “So it’s interesting that they would come out with this explosive weapon of mass destruction.”
    Nutrition experts aren’t happy about it either.
    “My biggest concern is saturated fat,” says Lona Sandon, registered dietitian and spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. “You are getting large amounts of total fat and saturated fat by eating a sandwich like this, and this is very detrimental to your overall heart health.”
    Considering that we’ve been exhorted by nutrition experts to consume fewer refined grains, is the absence of bread a plus?
    “It doesn’t really matter,” Sandon says. “The bread is the least of the evils in that sandwich.”

    Paula Deen wishes she would have thought of that.

    State Fair vendors are trying to figure out how to but it in a stick.

    I would imagine that if you had it without the sauce,cheese, and bacon that it's not all that bad...oh wait that would mean that you are eating 2 fried chicken breast!!!! YIKES!

    I can imagine a long night on the toilet after eating that.

    You know my main problem is that they wouldnt even cook the bacon. I get so sick of ordering sandwiches with bacon on them and getting some mess where the bacon is half cooked, you bite it and it snaps back hitting you in the face. You know how bacon acts when it isnt fully cooked. Im sure thats exactly what theyd do with this bacon here.

    lol this reminds me of the bunless hamburgers that were a huge rage 7 years ago when Atkins was huge.

    Processed chicken products gross me out, so I'll be passing on this one.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.
