Review: KFC - Double Down Part Deux - The Fix

Here's part two of my KFC Double Down Sandwich review AKA the Fix.  I recommend it to anyone who, like myself, finds the Double Down too salty to enjoy.  It's all the goodness of the Double Down but with less saltiness (but, sorry to say, not less actual salt).
Since the Double Down was much too salty for my taste, it was a good thing that I also bought two KFC Biscuits which are sold two for 99 cents as part of KFC's value menu.  I've written before that KFC Biscuits are my absolute favorite biscuits and with the value menu, I'll usually buy two with any order at KFC.
Since KFC, to my continuing dismay, still doesn't sell a biscuit sandwich, it was easy enough to split the Double Down into two separate filets and place each resultant half into a biscuit."  It's not nearly as salty to eat and you add some buttery biscuit goodness to the mix.
It's a super chicken biscuit with bacon and cheese!  Everything goes really well together and the chicken is almost as thick at the biscuit.  It was drool-inducing.  I highly recommend making one yourself.  Beware though, it's a bit expensive at about $6 ($4.99 for the Double Down plus 99 cents for two biscuits) but you can make two biscuit sandwiches.  Actually, if you buy four biscuits, you could make four biscuit sandwiches because each biscuit was about half the size of Double Down chicken filets that I received.

If KFC sold a sandwich like this, I would definitely buy it.  Sell a biscuit sandwich already dammit KFC!

  1. Nice, I suspected that you would have done something like buying making your own sandwich! I guess you can get also do "protein style" like In'n'Out and wrap it with lettuce or use bigger bread and make it a sub or something! Either way, that was a nice touch up

  2. @Rob: I could but "protein style" wouldn't work so great for me since it would still be salty and I like my carbs.

    I could also use a bigger bread but there's nothing like the butter softness of a KFC biscuit! Regular buns have nothing on the biscuit! I think I read somewhere that a KFC was putting the Double Down in their sandwich bun though, not sure if it was by request or by confusion.

  3. Q, get a new camera that first picture looks nasty!!!

    Love, John

  4. @John: That's just the way it looked!

  5. LOL...I like your comment at the end here. I'm wondering if KFC sells their sandwich at all stores.
