KFC does not have a reputation of being the healthiest of restaurants. Their business model is to basically acquire as many ingredients that doctors tell people to avoid as possible and put them on top of fried chicken. But there’s one food that has yet to be combined with fried chicken: Hot dogs.
Well that changes today.
KFC announced that a limited number of restaurants will offer the Double Down Dog, which is a hot dog inside of a fried chicken bun and covered in cheese. And it looks amazing.
For those of you who aren’t actively trying to give yourself a heart attack, the original Double Down was a sandwich with bacon and cheese stuffed between two pieces of chicken. Adding a hot dog to the mix will really help KFC branch out to people who prefer to ruin their cholesterol through processed sausages. Take a look at what the Double Down Dog looks like when you actually get one at the restaurant:
Some people obsessed with nutrition (and presumably opposed to happiness) have reacted negatively to the Double Down Dog, saying it’s way to unhealthy to sell to consumers. Model Chrissy Teigen has the perfect response for these Double Downers:
Why is everyone so appalled by the KFC double down dog? You’d eat the same two things in a day anyhow. It’s actually a time-saver.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) January 26, 2015
Unfortunately, the Double Down Dog is only available in the Philippines currently. Although there’s probably somebody creating a petition to import them to America on Change.org right now.
