Because it’s Tuesday: Meat Child of KFC

Oh KFC, what have you wrought with your Double Down madness? WAIT! Lets not go down that road right now, filled with sodium, and follow-ups involving burgers between grilled cheese sandwiches.

What is to be pointed out here is that KFC has announced the meaty child of the Double Down, coming to their menus July 5th. I give you the Doublicious!!!… Yeah…

Well, it looks like a chicken sandwich. Yes, KFC totes the presence of bacon, cheese, and that “special sauce” from the Double Down, but there’s not a whole lot that jumps out as unique about just another chicken sandwich on a fast food menu…or that much that’s double about it as it’s name suggests.

I might give it a try KFC, but you lost your grove with this one. Kudos for not even reinventing the wheel, but just for re-branding it…again. Thanks to the folks over at Slash/Food for pointing this one out.

Because it’s Tuesday: What’s the Odd Thing You Eat?

So, this Tuesday, I’ve posted a lovely image from the site thisiswhyyourefat.com as my random absurdity. Now, this site is an endless source of amusement for me as it is a constant host of amusement, and the oddest, and sometimes most stomach food items found on the internet.

Now, the whole site is a gas, and a great way to eat up an afternoon at the computer clicking away, but it begs the question: what kind of food oddity do you like.

Now up above is an abomination called the KFC Elvis Double Down, latching onto the fanatic craze that is KFC’s…creation. Most elvis items in themselves are a persons food oddity. I mean, really we’re talking about peanut butter and bananas folks. That’s not your average fare.

Really though, I can’t judge. I have my own eating habits that some people might shake their head at. So for now, here’s a list of my own wierd food combinations. Take a look, and see if you shake your head. Better yet, see if any sound good. Best yet, share some of your own in the comments.

And without further ado, the odd:

  • Peanut Butter on Eggs
  • Mayo on French Fries
  • Mayo on High School Cafe Pizza
  • Ketchup on pasta (yeah, plain pasta)
  • Honey Mustard on Steak
  • Gravy on Fries
  • Maple Syrup on Sweet Potato
  • And last but not least (although not that odd) entire pints of Ice Cream

Keene, NH KFC Fail

Kyle's LunchThis just in folks. I have just heard from my field test subject field reporter Kyle in his quest to try one of KFC‘s new Double Down sandwiches.  Apparently  we are no go, with Keene, NH’s KFC failing to provide the goods.

To the left is what the poor soul had to suffer through instead. It’s horrible to have to eat Popcorn chicken, Macaroni and cheese, and of course the Baja Mt. Dew instead of the much desired Double Down. Bacon Ranch Tostada

Oh, and if you’re wondering, yes this is a KFC/Taco Bell combo…This also means that he followed up the above meal with a Bacon Ranch Tostada. He may have failed, but he reports that he is full and happy.

The End is Nigh: KFC Edition

KFC Double DownRUN!!! I don’t know whether I should tell you to run towards, or away from this beastly creation, but whichever direction you chose, RUN TO IT!

It has existed as a shadowy rumor. It has been referred to as a secret menu item. Heart’s clog when it’s name is uttered. Still, it is officially upon us on this 12th day of April 2010: The KFC double down sandwich. Yes folks, you are seeing this right. No, this is not some odd creation off of Thisiswhyyourefat.com. This is now officially on KFC‘s menu.

So here’s the breakdown of the heart-clogger that is the Double Down:

  • 2 Origianl recipe Fillets
  • Bacon
  • Pepper jack Cheese
  • Swiss Cheese
  • and the oh so lovely Colonel sauce

That’s right, and this stoner’s dream-which is causing a bit of a stir in the health community. It seems like everything I read about his online is about people complaining about how wrong it is, and whining about America’s obesity, and this that, and a heart attack. Good for them, but no one is making people eat this sandwich. People seek it out on their own accord, knowing full well what it is. It’s bad for you…ok, that’s putting it mildly. Still, if you don’t want it, don’t eat it. Works well enough with Liver and brussel sprouts.

Still, with my odd diet, I’ll still get one (on a Saturday of course). I know it’s bad for me. I acknowledge the years I must be shaving off of my life by eating this monster. And it will probably never have tasted so good. I’ll update with the first impressions of the sandwich with my field guinea pig reporter Kyle on how this thing actually is later on.
