KFC Has A Bacon Sandwich That Uses Fried Chicken As "Bread"
Consumerist.com ^ | Aug 21 2009 | Meg Marco

Posted on 08/24/2009 2:11:22 PM PDT by Joiseydude

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.

And given we're talking KFC, it's probably served at room temperature.

Sounds like a local creation to me. Most restaurants will make you a custom whatever, if they have the ingredients.

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..."

A good friend of my who is my age, just had a massive heart attack four weeks ago.

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.

From the photos, the chicken looks breaded. The sauce probably probably contains some sugar variant as well.

It probably contains at least 50 grams of protein, and not many more calories than the regular sandwich. It probably also tastes about 10 times better than the regular sandwich.

What will kill you in that concoction is the sodium.

I read somewhere that they are "testing" this in several cities. It's 5.99.

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.

Starch "turns" to sugar because it is a long polymer of sugar. Sort of like a big wall of bricks "turns into" bricks when you take down the wall. Sugar is what cells run on biochemically. It all goes around in a big circle.

Try whole grain or sprouted bread. No such concerns there.

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.

A lot more complex and a lot more REAL and useful. Each line represents a biochemical reaction catalyzed by a specific enzyme. As you can see, it all goes around in a circle.

Your body can make proteins and fats using sugar.

Your body can make sugar and proteins using fats.

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.....

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. :)
