Yes. I want one. Right Now.
From the Chicago Tribune’s review:
…a bacon and cheese sandwich where bread is replaced with fried chicken. Re-read that last sentence, and just try to grasp its cultural significance. The toothpaste is out of the proverbial tube.
…Double Down’s larger implication is that KFC has broken through a barrier of culinary decency, besmirching the good name of sandwiches and all that is honorable… The absence of bread robs this “sandwich” of dignity.
All told, the ripples from this landmark product launch will be significant. Stand-up comedians will construct 10-minute riffs around this. Taco Bell will follow suit and introduce a taco called the Carne Go-Torta, where the tortilla shell is replaced with a meat sleeve. Freedom-loathing terrorists will hate us for this. I can see it now.
America, just because you can, it doesn’t mean you have to.
