Several informants – and students in my NYU Food Ethics class – told me about KFC’s latest sandwich or sent me to stories about it: two slabs of breaded chicken, two slices of bacon, two melted slices of cheese, and sauce. I checked the KFC website. Apparently, it’s for real. There is even a TV Commercial.
And here’s the nutrition information. Practically a diet product (except for the sodium). You can’t make up stuff like this.
|Sandwich||Calories||Fat (g)||Sodium (mg)|
|KFC Original Recipe® Double Down||540||32||1380|
|KFC Grilled Double Down||460||23||1430|
