Maybe it comes with a side of salad?

On Friday, while the Pretend Husband and I were traveling, we stopped at Wendy's for dinner. And I forbid him from ordering the Baconator. I have never forbidden the PH to do anything (I think our marriage vows pretty much forbid adultery, but that's God forbidding it, not me). I did it because the last time the PH had a Baconator, he had some-- ahem-- gastrointestinal issues for the rest of the night. So, really, it was for his own good (and mine!)

I sense I will be forbidding the PH from ordering something else just as soon as he hears about it. KFC is now offering this:

That's the KFC Double Down Sandwich, which is bacon, cheese and sauce between two pieces of fried chicken. My arteries are clogging just talking about this. The fact that this sandwich is being tested out in only two markets-- neither of which we live in-- may be the only thing standing between the PH and a coronary right now.

I am at once horrified and intrigued. If I ever end up eating anything like this, no one will know until they do an autopsy and find out I died from shame.

What the hell is that sauce?

In other news, I would totally eat this without the sauce. *hangs head in shame*

I think my arteries just got a teeny bit narrower from looking at that picture. I find it interesting, but shouldn't there be a bun involved? It just seems wrong to have the fried chicken on the outside. And clearly, the calorie count wouldn't be complete without those carbs...

I guess KFC figures since they came out with grilled chicken, it is okay to counteract with the Double Down.....that's just wrong.

WOW, weird. Sounds a little good to taste, but yeah, to swallow. Hmmmm, interesting. What markets is it being tested???

Isn't KFC trying to be healthier? That doesn't look healthy to me...

oh, i'd eat that. no doubt.

i'd also die shortly after. i love both stephanie and soda's answers. it could be from heart disease, could be from shame. you decide, coroner.

I think it should be called the KFC Double Bypass Sandwich.

Have you been to www.thisiswhyyourefat.com?

OMG, what a nasty mess that is! I agree about a food needing to be forbidden. THAT should be against the LAW!

I am stuck bang in the middle of disgusted and tempted.It's proper dirty food, isn't it? The sort of stuff you fancy when drunk but if you et it you feel sort of soiled afterwards. Wrong.
