Last fall, KFC announced that they were testing a new type of sandwich in a few markets. Unlike, say, something that comes in-between two bread buns, this one contains “two slices of bacon, melted slices of Swiss and pepper jack cheese and a dollop of ‘the Colonel’s sauce” stuffed between two pieces of fried chicken.
You would think that such a creation would find a few loyal fans — but avoid mass-market penetration. Nope. Our society is that nutritionally f–ked.
KFC has announced that they will be rolling out the new “Double-Down” sandwich on April 12th nationwide. But is it really all that awful? Well yes, but not compared to others:
“It’s not nearly as bad as you’d think (it’s nowhere near some of the Hardee’s sandwiches, by comparison),” said a commenter on Runner’s World. “The fried version is 540 calories and 32g fat. Grilled version is 460 cals w/ 23g fat. As an example, the new jalapeno chix sandwich from Hardee’s is 610 cals w/39g fat. Go all out with a Monster Thickburger and you’ll ring up 1320 cals w/95g fat!”
Hardees must have stock in Lipitor. As the above shows, just avoid fast food in general, folks!
