Just when you think that the salt-lick-posing-as-food-item KFC called the Double Down was down and out in our continent (it's still big in Japan), the company has announced that their infamous bunless chicken “sandwich” has mutated into hybrid creature called the “Zinger Double Down.”
Starting this week, Canadians, can not only have the original Double Down to increase their sodium intake levels, but this spicier incarnate that has
reportedly twice the breading.
The press release describes it this way:
The new Zinger Double Down features two premium seasoned chicken
breasts, marinated to perfection in KFC's signature hot and spicy
seasoning. Next, it's double-breaded by hand for extra crunch – and
lightly fried to golden KFC splendour. Finally, the bunless wonder is
topped with spicy mayonnaise sauce, processed Pepper Jack cheese and
two pieces of crispy bacon.
