KFC has revived the Double Down and people are losing their minds. The sandwich (is it a sandwich if there’s no bread?) consists of two extra crispy white meat filets, two slices of cheese, two pieces of hickory-smoked bacon, with either mayo or spicy sauce. This heart-attack-inducing sandwich was introduced in 2010, with more than 10 million sandwiches sold in the first month. KFC brought this Frankensandwich back in 2014. It remained dormant until yesterday, when it was unleashed upon the earth again. If you want to try the Double Down, you have four weeks to do so — the Double Down is available for a limited time only.
