The Double Down Madness

Double Down Canada

Never so much has one fast food sandwich cause so much of a commotion with health food nuts and parents going utterly insane with outrageous remarks on how it’s going to kill people and clog all of our arteries…give me a break.

I purposely wanted the hype to die down before actually adding to this social uproar of thi fast food atrocity.

So what makes up this monster of a sandwich exactly?

We have 2 original recipe chicken breasts (nothing crazy yet), crisp bacon (like you have every morning) processed pepper jack cheese (like you have in a lunch deli sandwich),and some KFC sauce (just like we have in most fast food sandwiches).  Now ask yourself do you actually eat any of these items on their own?  Most of you probably have a combination of two or three a day and don’t even notice it but if you put it all in one sandwich (I’m using that term loosely) everyone goes crazy and wants to burn down the nearest KFC restaurant.

The fact that this sandwich causes so much of a media circus makes me believe that our dear friend Colonel Sanders purposely found the best ingredients to make all crazy with conversations starting like “have you ever heard of the…? or can you believe what they’re doing…?”  The fact is that the Double Down is a marketer’s dream with all of us already talking and echoing amongst ourselves before the sandwich even crossed the border!

Now the conversation has turned from “have you heard of this Double Down Sandwich?” to “when are you going to try it?” and most of us will have to try it at least once before the coalition for wrongfully obese children tries to ban KFC for good!

So before you condemn this sandwich to fast food hell think about the last time you ate a Big Mac at McDonald’s because I bet you didn’t know that it has the same amount of calories as the Double Down (540 Calories).

And as a final note we shouldn’t even think about eating at a restaurant named Wendy’s cause they sell something called a “Baconator Double”…and I dare you find out how many calories are in that behemoth.
