Double Down review

Today, I had the double down from KFC and I have a lot to say about it.

Stats:
calories: 540
fat: 32g
sodium: 1380mg

The amount of calories surprised me the most. It only has 540 which is really not that much for all that. The amount of fat, isn't surprising. The worst thing about this product is that the amount of sodium is super high. 1380mg of sodium is half the daily intake of sodium you are supposed to get. You are eating half of the amount of sodium you need in just one burger. This is why some people call this burger the 'manifesto of death'.

You can get this in just the burger or add a meal to it.  The chicken can be crispy of grilled as well.

Bacon:  in my double down, all i got was 2 strips of bacon.  the problem was that i could not even taste the bacon and didn't realize it was there until i opened up the sandwich.  In the grilled version, there was also bacon in it, meaning there is NO healthy version of this burger.

Cheese:  i liked the cheese a lot, because it wasn't just ordinary cheddar or mozzarella.  ** my friend said that he had one with just Kraft dinner cheese so i don't know about the consistence of this.

Chicken:  basic 2 pieces of chicken instead of buns, which makes this burger unique from every other one on the market.  *chicken is available in grilled or crispy, where grilled is more healthy.

In my personal opinion, it wasn't as horrible as people say it is. The burger tasted phenomenal and it felt like my taste buds were on Jeffrey(a drug from Get Him to the Greek).  The only problem was that it costs A LOT for a burger that is only about 4" x 5" big.  Also, after i finished eating it, it felt like there was a layer of oil on my tongue.

  2. 1) "in my double down, all i got was 2 strips of bacon."

    You're only suppose to get 2 strips of bacon. That's why it's called a "DOUBLE DOWN". You get 2 of everything... [2 pieces of cheese, 2 pieces of chicken etc]

    2) It's not a FUCKING BURGER. It's a DOUBLE FUCKING DOWN. Say it right OR DON'T SAY IT AT ALL.

    3) ...STOP FIDGETING!

    jeedee out
