Have you seen it?  It's KFC's new sandwich.  Bacon.  Cheese.  Mayo.   All between two slathered and fried chicken breasts.  It doesn't even look remotely appealing.

In a time when some of us are thinking healthy eating KFC thinks bottom line revenue and comes up with this.  If America wasn't still hungry for and buying food like this you'd never see a Double Down KFC sandwich.  America is fat and getting chubbier by the minute.

I read yesterday that a Disney amusement park has made alterations to one of its rides to accommodate overweight people.  It seems they wouldn't fit in any of the seats on this ride.  Now, thanks to the adjustments, they'll fit.  I'm wondering what Disney will do when people become so rotund that they no longer fit in the seats that were altered.

Where and when is our gluttony going to end? 

Don't get me wrong.  I love fried chicken, especially what can be had at KFC.  But it's not an everyday or even once a month deal.  It's an every once in a while deal.  Even at that I peel the fried skin off of the breast meat and discard it.  Yeah, tasty as it is I just can't come to put anything into me with that much fat.  But it's ohhhhh so good.  Damn it!   How can anything so not so good for you taste so great?  The salt......has to be the salt. 

Take this sandwich . . . like 1,380 milligrams of sodium.  Whew!  That's a bunch.  Calories are close to 540 clocking in with 32 grams of fat.  This shit would definitely get your arteries humming.  Downing a cup of Crisco would probably be better for you.  Whatta thought.

The American Heart Association recommends a daily intake of 1,000 calories with sodium at 1,000 mg's per day, too. 

Need I say more?

I can't recall the last time I was in a KFC, so I haven't had the chance to see one of these beasts in person, but I watched some show with a doctor who ate nothing but junk food for two weeks and documented how it changed his mood and such and it was scary! One of the things he was shown eating was the KFC Double Down, and when he pulled it apart to show the audience everything, it looked nasty. I think I got a gut ache by osmosis!

(thanks for the blog visit today!)

There has got to be more than 32 grams of fat. I looked it up and it says that is 32, but I don't believe it.
Crazy. My stomach wouldn't be right for a week If I ate that.

Diff Kind of Girl: You should visit KFC more often. It's good for the "coat".....:)

Laroo: I'd buy one and take one bite just to see what it tastes like. That would be worth it, wouldn't it? And it would only be like 50 calories and 2 grams of fat. Ya think?
