Random Thoughts on KFC’s Double Down Chicken Sandwich

Is It Wrong That I Want To Eat This Thing? It Looks So…Tasty

I know I’m late to the party blogging about something made with fried chicken, bacon and cheese, but I think I figured out why KFC has begun to make what is essentially a Redneck version of  Chicken Cordon Bleu. KFC does not actually expect the vast majority of people (or dogs for that matter) to eat this thing. In fact, I would imagine that they do not anticipate much in the way of direct profits. I think they did this to skew our sense of what is acceptable to eat.

If I am a fatty (I said “if”! Yay for Internet anonymity!), or even just an occasional fast food consumer, now I can pull up to KFC and order more liberally without the guilt. Whereas before I would have felt like a monster for ordering a Famous Bowl, a large Coke, a biscuit, and a chocolate lava cake, that now seems sensible compared to the Double Down. So, my $10 worth of artery-clogging junk food, which makes my left arm hurt to look at it, has now been normalized.

Genius.
