Cramsey Reviews the KFC Double Down Sandwich

Christy

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard recently that KFC re-released their Double Down Sandwich for a limited time.

The concept started out as an April Fool’s joke in 2010 that was so popular, the company actually started selling the abomination on April 12 that same month. It became so popular so quickly that KFC extended the sales period indefinitely and in the years following, started selling it around the globe.  It was taken off the menu in late 2010, but in certain areas you could still get one if you knew to ask and if the staff knew what you were talking about.

They started promoting it again recently and it’s supposedly available from April 21 only through May 25. Since I’d been one of the brave few to actually eat not one, but TWO of these sodium bombs back when they were first available, I was the best barometer out of the Gallery staff as to whether it was still as amazing this go ’round.

So I videoed myself eating one.

Did I also mention that I’m gluten-intolerant? I GLUTEN’D MYSELF FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT SCIENCE! Now, if you’ll pardon me, I think I need to take a handful of low-dose aspirin. Kids, don’t try this at home.

Christy Stevens used to be known as Christy Ramsey but due to centuries-old romanticized marriage traditions, she no longer goes by that name, no matter what Acadia wants to think. She’s been on the internet since before there was internet but is mostly movie and TV illiterate. She can fake her way through most pop culture references based partially on internet research and her ridiculously strong context clues skills. She’s a native Floridian (a rarity indeed) and fully owns that her home state is full of crazies and creatures that would eat you as soon as look at you. She used to be a writer, moderator and member of a comedy website but it shut down on April Fool’s Day a few years ago and apparently the joke isn’t over yet. She lives with her husband, Jay, her 9 year old son, 2 dogs, 3 cats and 1 horse. Most times, when she’s not actively coming up with excuses to not write for Acadia, she can be found gardening, riding her horse and other one-percenting things.

    Princess Peach, I’m wearing a bikini at a party today! (Will send pics for internet fame.)

    Also, they make this in a “grilled” variety that has less fat and fewer calories than the “original recipe” variety, somehow LOTS more sodium. So pick your poison wisely. They both have fewer calories than Burger King’s Tender Crisp sandwich.

    In my hometown, there is a Wendy’s right next to a KFC. My friends and I developed a new sandwich, called the Full House. Take a Double Down and “shuffle” it into a Triple Baconator. Chicken, Pork, and Beef together like they were meant to be.

    I just watched this at lunchtime. Such a bad idea. I am not able to acquire KFC from where I am. Epic losing.

    I think if you ate a baby it would be healthier than this sandwich
