KFC “Double Downs” In Japan With NEW Chicken Patty Bun Sandwich! Wildest KFC Chicken Burgers!


The Infamous Double Down KFC Burger Is Back – In Japan!

One of my favorite websites, SoraNews24.com, always has the latest food from the far East, and they have the latest KFC news: the “Double Down” is back!

You know what a “Double Down” is, right?

Well, it’s a “unique” sandwich that makes “liberal” use of KFC Fried Chicken.

As SoraNews24 reports:

“When Kentucky Fried Chicken introduced Double Down, a wicked burger that replaces buns with fillets of fried chicken, Japan went on the offense and stuffed rice in there for an extra twist.

Now, the original is back yet again in Japan as The Double (520 yen, US$4.65). Available from November 1, it features sliced cheddar cheese, roasted bacon, barbecue sauce, and mustard dressing sandwiched between two thick fillets of fried chicken.”

Yes, you read right: double patties of chicken surrounding a rice patty with mustard, cheese, bacon and more…and if you want to see how they advertise in Japan, here’s one for the sandwich that offered up ketchup as well:

SoraNews24 goes on to report:

Also returning is the Colonel Charity Box (390 yen), which features a piggy bank in the form of a smiling Colonel Sanders. Each Colonel Charity Box purchase will donate 100 yen to the World Food Programme, an organization that strives to end hunger and improve nutrition in various countries around the world.

That’s right, save money for a good cause by stuffing it inside the Colonel…you know KFC has no shame when it comes to wacky food – in South Korea, they have the Double Down that replaces the rice patty with BEEF!

Bravo as always to SoraNews24, which has tons of great stories every day…see this one here:

And don’t forget that KFC released a “Double Down Hot Dog” once as well:

If you want to know what KFC is up to beyond the “double down” – remember that they recently puckered up for “dill pickle fried chicken”:

  1. Too much chicken for me. But the dill pickle flavor looks interesting! 🙂

    • Pete, I tried one once – we ordered them in for our TV show staff as a funny bit, and then we showed what happened on that day’s show…people liked them but when I tried one, I thought it had way too much pepper….turns out it was the sodium!
