Back in 2010 it was hard to escape news of the KFC Double Down. From The Colbert Report to YouTube to USA TODAY, consumers were endlessly intrigued by a bacon 'n' cheese sandwich that used two fried chicken filets instead of a bun.
For those who didn't get to sample the meaty menu item, KFC is offering one more chance: Starting April 21, the Double Down will return to the fast-food chain, the company has announced. You heard it here first.
From from USAToday.com:
- Rising food prices pinching consumers
- KFC sells chicken corsage just in time for prom
- Chick-fil-A wings in new direction after gay flap
Once again, the sandwich will be available for a limited time. I hear KFC has a social media campaign up its sleeve that includes a nationwide "Double Down Dare" (oh, my). For details, keep an eye on kfc.com and @kfc.
