Isn’t America Fat ENOUGH?
Seriously. Aren’t we fat enough? Every where you turn there is some new story or article on how fat we, as a nation are, and continue to become. Even our kids are fat. Yet with all of the focus on healthful eating and exercise, companies are STILL finding ways to perpetuate the problem. Case in point: Kentucky Fried Chicken’s new Double Down sandwich.
What in the hell is this thing?
This unappetizing hunk of fat meat is called the Double Down. Eat it, and not only will you be getting double the meat, but you might as well double the fat…on your gut, hips, and thighs! KFC is estimating it has 590 calories and 31 grams of fat.
It’s kind of ironic that they have been trying to re-brand themselves by changing their name and going with just the initials KFC. They came out with their new grilled chicken but then follow it up with this colon clogger. That sound you hear may be your arteries hardening just from looking at the picture. In fact, the picture almost looks like a cross section of what your arteries may look like after eating one.
I mean I guess I sort of follow the logic that if you want to reduce your carbs, why not eliminate the bread and up your protein with another slab of chicken? But if that is the case, why not make the sandwich with grilled chicken instead of fried? Am I the only one that thinks the Double Down looks doubly disgusting? You cannot tell me that KFC couldn’t come up with another way to appeal to the low carb-loving population. Perhaps something with less fat? I think KFC is totally missing the point here.
This video sums it up quite nicely.
But I’m curious…what do you think?
