Legendary sandwich returns to NJ – for a limited time
🐔 Kentucky Fried Chicken is bringing back the Double Down for a limited time
🐔 It is bunless, but not calorie conscious
🐔 NJ residents have a chance to get one early
A fast food sandwich that has achieved legendary status will be returning to New Jersey for a limited time.
Garden State KFC restaurants will begin selling the Double Down on Monday.
The bun is swapped out for two deep fried chicken fillets. Two cheese slices, bacon and mayo or spicy sauce are sandwiched in between.
KFC took a poll on Twitter, and the results were overwhelmingly in favor of bringing the Double Down back.
To call it a bunless sandwich is technically true, but it's certainly not for a calorie conscious. USA today reported the Double Down comes in at 950 calories.
It first debuted in 2010. KFC says they sold more than 10 million Double Downs.
The double down was removed from the menu in 2014, and fans have been asking for it's return for a decade.
If you don't want to wait until Monday, KFC is giving you a chance to get one on Sunday with their double down drop sweepstakes. If you sign up at www.kfcdoubledowndrop.com, KFC says they will allow 2,014 fans to buy a sandwich a day early.
