I'm sure that the flavor is awesome.

I do prefer regular bowel movements though.

I'm torn.........

That bad-boy has more calories, fat and everything else that they measure on labels than a "Wendy's Triple" w/ everything. I just gotta find one of those. LOL. Heart attack in a wrapper.

Is there truth to the story that KFC is now called such because they are no longer allowed to use the word 'Chicken' in their advertising (misrepresentation)?

It's only 590 calories, why not have two- a double double-down. They would probably make you double double-over later.

That whole thing is old silliness. They constantly say the word, "chicken" in their commercials. They went to KFC much like how Dairy Queen is calling everything "DQ" and Burger King is "BK." It's all marketing.


Cheers!

I figured as much.

They may treat their commodity a bit rough, but they are technically chickens while alive (ignore the P. Anderson blah blah).

Not surprised that such animal cruelty exists. Everyone turns a blind eye.

On topic, that double down sandwich made me feel like puking. Hey, I like the greasy fois gras topped pie every now and then but that KFC DD is just plain wrong.

Check out this KFC related item. Look quick, it will change in the next day or two.

Seriously though. This after the KCF bowls? WTF are these people thinking? Do they seriously want to kill off their client base? Is KFC owned by Phillip/Morris?

Well, since I am a big proponent of the McRib, this looks very enticing. In fact, there is a KFC directly on my way home. Smile

I still dont think it can top Hardee's monster burger. I think that had a week of calories and saturated fat.

OINK! OINK! OINK!

This seems to capture today's American popular "cuisine": Never mind -- the crappy software this cheap-ass site uses doesn't allow posting graphics or useable links.

Shocking that it's only 590 Calories! However, add a large Pepsi, a large French Fries and, make that total------1200 Calories.... I'll stick to wine & a tenderloin!

I want to try one of these / eat these on a regular basis. Why won't KFC bring this to Canada?

I just read about this the other day in TIME...apparently it was a promotional item but they have sold so many (7 million in 6 weeks or somethign crazy)they are making it part of the permanent menu. I am going to have to try one at some point in the near future...

Why anyone would eat KFC without skin is beyond me. If and when I'm every told that I'm being executed at dawn, my last supper will be KFC skin without the chicken - and sour-cream glazed Timbits.

And malbec is an excellent match for KFC....
