If you have ever thought to yourself, "you know I' d love this
chicken sandwich but I can' t stand the bun," and you live in Omaha,
Nebraska or Providence, R.I.---than KFC has your dream sandwich.
The new KFC $6.99 "Double Down" Chicken sandwich (which is currently
being test marketed in Nebraska and Rhode Island) features two
finger-lickin' pieces of chicken and two slices of
bacon, melted slices of swiss and pepper jack cheese and a dollop of
"the Colonel' s sauce, according to the Chicago Sun Times.
" It' s so much 100 percent
premium chicken, we didn' t have room for a bun, " according to a KFC
commercial posted on YouTube.
Right about now (if you are an endurance athlete) you might be
wondering just how much running, for instance, you' d have to do to burn
all the calories in the Double Down.
An independent analysis of the sandwich suggests that it has about 1,228 calories.
And that means that you' d have to run about 10 miles to burn through all of the cheesy and chicken goodness of the Double Down.
