KFC 'doubles down' with return of fan-favorite menu item
Impossible Foods’ Peter McGuinness fires back at plant-based meat haters
Impossible Foods CEO Peter McGuinness responds to a recent media article calling the plant-based meat industry a ‘fad’ on ‘The Claman Countdown.’
Fried chicken fans rejoice! KFC is resurrecting a fan-favorite menu item with no bun and a "cult following."
After a nearly 10-year hiatus, Yum Brands' KFC on Thursday announced the return of its iconic and fast-selling Double Down Sandwich. The bun-less sandwich features two slices of cheese, two pieces of crispy, hickory-smoked bacon, and mayo or spicy sauce sandwiched between two of KFC's "Extra Crispy" chicken filets.
A smash-hit sensation with fried-chicken foodies, the Double Down sold a mind-boggling 10 million sandwiches when it was first released in 2010. KFC brought it back for a limited time in April 2014, but the sandwich has been absent from KFC menus for about nine years.
Now it will return for a limited four-week run on Monday, March 6.
