veni, vidi, edi


I rode a fair amount today so I finally felt justified in eating the infamous Double Down.

Apparently you can get them in grilled form too, but if you’re going to KFC, you may as well go all out.

The couple in front of me briefly considered mixing the “buns” and getting one grilled patty and another fried patty. Proposed by the husband, the wife quickly pooh-poohed the idea.

I actually quite enjoyed mine, but the breading on the copy that I got wasn’t as crispy as I would have preferred. But the flavor wasn’t bad, and as always, having hot sauce around helped.

Interestingly, the sandwich box said KFC/KGC. I wonder if they’re going to change the name of their entire business. Ye gods, I hope not.

I left feeling fairly confident that I could eat enough of these in one sitting to be competitive, were a Double-Down eat-off ever proposed. After all, it’s the buns that fill you up.

And in case you’re wondering, no, I don’t really consider this to be a healthy sandwich. But still, it only has 11 grams of carbs and 53 grams of protein, which in terms of pure macronutrient ratios, isn’t bad. It’s just that the quality of the ingredients and their preparation are likely to be crap.

Now I’m wondering if you could make an even more delicious version by using two Chick-Fil-A patties, along with your own cheese and bacon. Pure, unadulterated delicious. Who’s with me?
