Review: KFC – Double Down (2023)

Kentucky Fried Down It is again on the menu for a restricted time and options two further crispy rooster breasts that embrace two slices of cheese, two slices of smoked bacon, and a selection of both mayonnaise or sizzling sauce.

i paid $8.99 Double Down and I obtained the common model with mayonnaise.

KFC I confirmed off views of a considerably open kitchen, so I obtained to see how they put the Double Down collectively. Principally, they grabbed two filets from the range, put a bit mayonnaise on every with a sauce gun, put a slice of cheese on every filet, added two slices of bacon from the field, after which flipped one of many filets over. above the opposite. Then they wrapped the sandwich in wax paper and positioned it in the identical foil-lined bag as their common rooster sandwiches. The warmth of the rooster within the bag fully melted the cheese on the brief journey residence.

Whereas the thought of ​​fried rooster as bread creates a form of scene across the Double Down, it is actually simply fried rooster with cheese and bacon. For those who minimize up the rooster and toss in grated cheese, crumbled bacon, and drizzle mayonnaise on prime, most individuals will not bat a watch.

The fried rooster fillet was calmly seasoned, barely flavourful, and reasonably crunchy. Its measurement and thickness have been reasonably beneficiant. Because the rooster just isn’t crunchy like bread and has a extra variance in thickness than bread, it was a bit of labor to chew into the thicker parts of the Double Down. Apparently, the place the unique Double Down (which I reviewed over 10 years in the past) was too salty for me, I discovered the present Double Right down to have a extra manageable saltiness. The rooster itself is made with respectable salt. I am not saying there’s much less salt right here in comparison with the earlier model, but it surely tastes much less salty.

The melted cheese appears to be like and tastes like processed white American cheese. It had that creamy, salty taste and melted simply from simply sizzling/heat rooster. It, together with the mayonnaise, served because the glue that held the rooster strips collectively, they usually did the job surprisingly properly. The mayonnaise was very gentle and did not add a lot to the sandwich aside from some further moisture.

The bacon wasn’t as crunchy because the rooster however supplied an occasional contact of salty smoke for extra selection in a number of the meals.

For the associated fee, you get two further crispy slices, that are the identical as these within the chain’s rooster sandwiches. Sandwiches price $5.49 apiece close to me, so until you actually respect bun, Double Down is extra bang on your buck.

Total, I loved KFC’s Double Down fairly a bit this time round. In addition to the marginally gritty consuming expertise of making an attempt to cram two stacked rooster strips into my mouth, I actually do really feel like I am consuming meaty, boneless fried rooster with some melted cheese and bacon, which is not unhealthy in any respect.
