Gross Recipe of the Week: KFC's Double Down

Usually, I have to do some looking around to find a gross enough recipe to write about for the GROW series.

Thanks to KFC, though, all I had to do was watch a 30-second ad on T.V. the other night in order to have a proper reason to write a new GROW post.

Behold, KFC's new Double Down:

I mean, are you kidding me? Why is replacing the bun on a bacon-cheese sandwich with two pieces of fried chicken a good idea? Why? WHY?

Oh, and don't worry; the Double Down (540 calories, 32 grams of fat, 1380 mg of sodium) is available in a heart-healthy grilled version! Woohoo! Only 460 calories, 23 grams of fat, and 1430 mg of sodium!

No other country in the world would feature this abomination. But of course, we're fĂȘting it like it's the second coming of Jesus. It's almost as bad as the bacon mug recipe...sometimes it's downright terrifying to live in the United States.
