You guys are all wrong ... the KFC Double Down is downright delicious!

Given that it's a limited time menu item and all the hubbub and angst over the Double Down, I just had to try it for myself.

Got the normal breaded fried version and while it looked like nothing on the commercials (it was rather a grotesque looking thing in fact, but more on that later), it tasted mighty fine. In fact, it was downright delicious.

But after finishing my first Double Down I felt like the experience was lacking something. While the Double Down was good in its own right, there was a part of me that felt like the sandwich was not complete. Sort of like finishing an ice cream sundae without chocolate fudge.

Then the epiphany struck. It needed ... bread! So I ordered another one and this time also got a biscuit on the side.

Took both back to our table, split open the biscuit, took the Double Down from its paper diaper (yeah, it's a diaper, because the thing looks like it was extruded from some god awful orifice on the backside of a large constipated animal), and placed the Double Down in between the biscuit and ... voila! A true Double Down sandwich.

Perfection.

Good on its own ... but better with biscuit.

Cheers.
