Don’t believe everything you see on the Internet. Well, at least take KFC’s social media posts with a pinch of salt.
The fast food giant in the last few days trolled its fans big time; first by uploading an image of a burger silhouette that resembled a Double Down, then by revealing it to be a Double Steamed Chicken burger stuffed with sauerkraut, coleslaw, and pickled cucumbers.
Needless to say, people were triggered.
After all, it’s supposed to be Kentucky FRIED Chicken, right? Not Kentucky Steamed Chicken.
Thankfully, we’ve been spared the atrocity of eating that horror show, as the KFC Double Down was released instead to the collective sigh of relief from all fast food junkies.
As part of KFC’s #SorryNotSorry campaign, the Double Down will come in two varieties: the original burger with two slices of fried chicken, turkey bacon, and a slice of cheddar cheese, and the Hawaiian Double Down; which comes loaded with same ingredients with the addition of a pineapple slice and BBQ sauce.
After trying it, we couldn’t help but feel that the Double Down was just another golden ticket to the promised land of heart attacks and high cholesterol.
If anything, the Double Down was nowhere near as outrageous as the insane Chizza creation launched earlier this year, simply because it has been done before. But after this episode, we’re not putting anything past KFC.
Who knows? That Double Steamed Chicken Burger might become a reality one day too.
The KFC Zinger Double Down and Hawaiian Double Down is available at all outlets island-wide.
