Hey all, good morning!
Have you tried the KFCs Double Down Yet?
Arkensen and Nanzaro was waiting for that day when it was going to be available in Canada for the first time. I think it was just the last Monday. While I promised them I will bring them to try it but I was just simply too busy at work that I did not do that. Monday past … Tuesday past … and then when I got home on Wednesday, equally as tired, they gave up on me and went on their own to try it.
My boys are fast food junkies. They like these kind of food and can have fast food everyday if we allow them to. So I thought that they will come back and tell me that they love it.
Instead, Arkensen said it was horrible. He said that it was way too salty. It was so salty that he could not even taste the cheese and bacon. That pretty much sums up every feedback I had heard from people I know.
I just cannot understand why this was made so salty. There has got to be an explanation for it because KFC knows about this. Strange.
No, I have not tried it. Would I try it? Oh yeah, I will. I just like to find out for my own self how salty is salty. 🙂
So I did some digging and found an excellent … chart from this source:
So what is the fuss with the KFC Double Down Sandwich? It is certainly none the worse compared to the worst out there. If you take a closer look, the Wendys Triple Baconator even has more fat (alone!) than the fat, sodium and cholesterol combined!
Not to be outdone, Carls Jr has the Foot Long Cheeseburger. Think about it for a minute. This monster has three patties in it and it costs just $4!
So what is Burger King gonna do? Certainly they will not stand back and watch. They had to get down low and dirty and play the same game. They came up with a Pizza Burger. He he he … FOUR Whopper patties topped with pepperoni, mozzarella, marinara sauce and Tuscan pesto … on a 9.5 inch sesame see bun.
In the same fashion of KFC, Friendlys lodged a hamburger between TWO grilled cheese sandwiches.
It is a good thing that these are not available (yet!) in Canada. But for those of you who absolutely cannot wait and wants to harden your arteries right now. You can try this at home (source here).
Here is a weekend project for you. This should be easy to do at home. Just go to McDonalds and get two Double Cheeseburgers, some McNuggets and a Super Sized fries. I think $15 can pretty much cover all that.
Have a good weekend everyone.
