Haven’t posted a food review in a while…mostly because not many people seem to find them at all interesting. I definitely haven’t stopped putting disgusting things in my body (that’s what she said), but today I went with a phenomenon that’s been making its way around every major news network, the KFC Double Down.
It’s two fried chicken breasts with bacon, pepperjack cheese, and special sauce sandwiched in between. How can you not want to eat that?
Let’s see how it breaks down:
540 calories, 32g of fat, and 1380mg of sodium.
The fat is pretty much what I expected, but the calories and sodium were lower than I thought it would be. If you’re not pigging out on potato wedges and a Coke, the sandwich itself is reasonable in calories for a meal. The sodium is way more than you should be eating, but I was expecting over 2000mg sodium from this thing. It also comes with a whopping 53 grams of protein.
What it doesn’t come with is Awesomeness.
I love the concept of this thing, but it just wasn’t very good. The bacon was thin and droopy and the sauce made it feel like I was eating a mayonnaise sandwich. The whole point in getting to pack a food full of fat and calories is to make something delicious. This was disappointing empty calories, not like the joy-inducing empty calories that come from eating an entire sleeve of Oreos.
Double thumbs down.
