KFC MEDIA ALERT:

DOUBLE ORIGINAL RECIPE FILLET, NO BUN – YEAH YOU HEARD US RIGHT

KFC has today announced the arrival of its most hotly anticipated UK launch, which some thought only existed in their chicken dreams.

The finger lickin’ good Double Down says no to bread buns and yes to doubling Original Recipe chicken.

It’s no surprise that the reaction to the breadless burger has bordered on obsession.

Not only does it feature two succulent Original Recipe chicken fillets, Double Down’s ingredients have been chosen to enhance the famous 11 herbs and spices.

Sandwiched between the chicken fillets is crispy bacon, melted Monterey Jack cheese and barbeque sauce, housed in a neat black, easy to handle, cardboard wrapper.

Quite simply, this ain’t no ordinary sandwich.

KFC has received hundreds of tweets and messages calling for the sandwich to be launched in the UK.

Chicken fanatics can today breathe a sigh of relief as the drop date into restaurants is announced as Monday 9th October.

Jack Hinchliffe, Innovation Director at KFC UK & Ireland, said of the Double Down:

There’s been so much excitement for the Double Down since it first launched to the US in 2010. It’s sold out in every country that it’s been released in, so we’re anticipating it’ll be a sell-out success here in the UK.

Fandom has gone wild over the past few years on social media, and we’ve even had reports of our customers taking things into their own hands by hacking the menu to create the sandwich. It seems people agree with us… there’s nothing better than an Original Recipe fillet, so if you can’t beat it – double it!”

The Double Down is priced from £4.79 – or from £5.79 with fries and a drink.

We told you it was coming and here is the official confirmation you have been waiting for!

Perhaps Mr. Hinchliffe was referring to when we created our own way back in 2013? See here.

How hyped are you to see the Double Down in the UK finally?

    Why oh why did they have to ruin it by changing the recipe? Why can’t they do anything the SAME as in the US? BBQ Sauce? Really?

      I’m relatively pleased it looks as faithful to the original as it does. After that poor attempt at Nashville hot chicken I was worried this would have lettuce in it or something equally ridiculous.

    What about the people who only have halal restaurants nearby will it be in them too?

      They can just not add the bacon so I don’t see why not.

    Good experience but TOO salty . I had it twice in Spain – when it was available. Better less salt.
