Another reason to dislike KFC, Double Down sales to continue

Meat lovers and those who apparently have found a vaccine for heart disease and obesity rejoice.

Due to the popularity of KFC’s latest artery overtaxing, bikini season eradicating and cause for mass chicken surrendering menu selection—the now infamous Double Down—sales of the meaty sandwich will continue beyond the originally planned May 23 deadline.

If you need a reminder, the Double Down “features two thick and juicy boneless white meat chicken filets (Original Recipe® or Grilled), two pieces of bacon, two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and Colonel's Sauce. And no bun, of course.”

Of course no bun, good grief a bun might actually contain grains and provide a source of energy that is not intertwined with oodles of saturated and trans-fats.

Unfortunately the 540 calories, 32 grams of fat and the salt mine busting 1,380 mg of sodium have not dissuaded patrons from purchasing the sandwich as KFC reports that the 10 millionth Double Down will be sold later this month.

KFC is further proving that America still has a long way to go when it comes to eating a healthy and compassionate diet.
