Rachel Been stood in line on that auspicious morning, ready and waiting for the unveiling of the Double Down Sandwich from KFC. She was expecting to get a hefty breakfast that day and KFC delivered.

Between two boneless pieces of chicken, lie two strips of bacon, and two slices of Monterey Jack and pepperjack cheese, along with a special sauce. The chicken can be ordered either breaded or grilled.

"This sandwich isn't for the faint of heart. The sodium intake alone will knock you off your feet: Our testers determined the salty culprit seemed to be the breading on the chicken, though it was pleasingly crispy and the meat itself was quite moist. "

Why eat a bun when you can eat two pieces of chicken? And why eat one slice of cheese when you can have two? The name of this sandwich, after all, is "Double Down". And all ingredients are doubled, all the way.

It doesn’t matter if it’s grilled or not, it’s still far too many calories for one meal. Nevertheless, this is what America wants. There are no food police. You can eat what you like. It’s just that eating, much like drinking and smoking, are bad for you in excess. We are moving away from the carb counting craze of the 2000’s and back to our fatty roots. http://www.weltbranding.com/blog/ has a good look at it. I agree with their description that nobody wants to go to fast food and eat healthy. Also, I like their progression of how foods are reverting back to the unhealthy nature, because after all, we are a fat nation. It’s science.
