Freakin’ amazing. As if you needed another reason not to eat at KFC. From The Consumerist:
Last August, we wrote about the “Double Down,” a mysteriously tempting (and potentialy lethal) new food item being tested by KFC. For those coming late to the story, it’s bacon and cheese sandwiched between two pieces of fried chicken. And now, many months later, I’ll finally be able to get my hands on one.
KFC announced the decision to go live with the Double Down yesterday, but we weren’t sure they weren’t playing a April Fools gag. But no, they truly are going nationwide with the delicacy on April 12th.
I’m going to suggest before consumption, dosing oneself with ASA, Plavix and Crestor might be desirable as a prophylactic measure. Post consumption, stat cardiac catheterization with stent placement is advised.
