Skip to comments.KFC Has A Bacon Sandwich That Uses Fried Chicken As "Bread"

This is perhaps man's greatest achievement or evidence of our civilization's impending doom. Maybe it's both.
Meet the KFC "double down." Although no mention of it is made on KFC.com and we have never seen an ad for it ourselves, we are being lead to believe that it is real by Foodgeekery.com. They have crappy cell phone camera footage of a commercial (from Omaha, apparently) for the mysterious beast, as well as photographic evidence of it in the wild.
The sandwich consists of two fried chicken fillets wrapped around bacon, cheese and Colonel's sauce. It apparently tastes like you think it would. An early-adopter explains:
That's it? That is the sandwich? That's not worth five dollars. Oh
oh my God. That is the best thing ever. I don't know what "Colonel's Sauce" is, but it is like a party in my mouth. This is completely worth the five dollars. Unfortunately I'm going to end up weighing 700 lbs after this, but it is simply amazing.

I may have to try that.
Its better than using bread as fried chicken.
And given we're talking KFC, it's probably served at room temperature.
Now ya went and made me hungry!
Does it come with a beer?
This is a dream come true for us low carbers! I’ll take 2!
I know a guy who likes to custom order a "double-double" from Wendy's (imagine a Wendy's triple with one more patty + cheese).
So, the truth is likely "KFC will make a Bacon Sandwich...", rather than "...has a..."
Thanks for that. :-)
Heart Attack on a bun!
Yeah, it’s a number 17 and comes with a Grape Soda.
A good friend of my who is my age, just had a massive heart attack four weeks ago.
Guess, I’d pass on this heart in a box
Sounds good to me! Actually, I can’t stand KFC, but if I liked it, I’d like this; anything with bacon and cheese is OK.
There’s a place in CA that sells a burger wrapped in lettuce leaves. It’s pretty good, actually.
Might have to get one of those.
Much better idea than that “Bowl Meal” fiasco of a few years back
Guess, Id pass on this heart in a box
Make that: “heart attack in a box”

From the photos, the chicken looks breaded. The sauce probably probably contains some sugar variant as well.
That said, it sounds delicious (and I'm not a pushover for chicken). Followed by some tums.
“Colonel Sauce” is more or less the same as ranch dressing. The unhealthy ingredient isn’t sugar. It’s oil and mono-sodium glutamate. It’s the same breaded chicken patty they put on their regular chicken fillet sandwich. You can get it grilled, if that’s an issue for you. KFC grilled chicken is low in fat, but it’s high in sodium and has MSG to boot.
Bread’s bad for you too. White starch turns right to sugar...not approved.
And with all the ghetto hospitality that makes us famous: "What do you want?" "Pull forward."
They missed the boat.
Shoulda used SPAM.
It’s almost like they’re taking notes from Thisiswhyyourefat.com.
I’M CRYING BIG FAT HAPPY TEARS OF MAN JOY !!
You’ll take 2 what, bypass surgeries?
LOL. Looks like a schematic of the Starship Enterprise.
Try whole grain or sprouted bread. No such concerns there.
(You can tell I live in CA).
It looks like it would be a lot lower carb than a regular sandwich. If they used grilled chicken, it would be fantasticly low carb.
Chicken as bread beats the Back yard burger lettuce as wrap concept. Back yard burger’s low carb rendition leaks all over the place.
Your body can make proteins and fats using sugar.

Thus I find the “no carbs” people as silly as the “no fat” people. Cotton candy is a fat free food! Bacon is carb free! Depending upon your diet is one good and the other bad? Or is excess of either probably not a good idea?
I think the plan is to hit the drive thru @ KFC and have a cooler full of suds in the back of your pickup. Makes for a slow afternoon at work afterwards though.....
Yup. Why wait years for your heart attack...have one today!!
I just gained weight from reading about this.
Maple Bacon from Vermont -— ah yes!
This summer I took a can of Spam with us camping. My kids had a breakfast of spam and eggs and they really liked the Spam until their mom told them that Obama likes Spam too. The kids didn't want any more Spam.
This is exactly what God makes when he gets bored making Manna..........
I just so happen to be in Omaha...I’ll have to get one and see how it is.
La Vista isn’t too far away.
That looks pretty awesome, but it would be even awesomer if the bread was made out of bacon as well, or better yet, chicken fried bacon for the bread, and pig candy for the bacon. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm baconny. :)
“Here’s Bubs, try some bread heels and bacon grease....”
There’s a whole-lotta munchin going on over there!!
