On 30th March 2011, the KFC Double Down was officially released in Sydney. I know, it’s a long time to wait since it was released on April 12 2010 in the US. As you would expect, we were pretty eager to go check out what was widely ridiculed as extremely unhealthy.
The Double Down contains a full day’s worth of sodium according to the American Heart Association’s guidelines. Of course this had no affect on sales, selling over 350 000 sandwiches in less than 10 days in Canada.

I also HAD to take a video of our experience with the double down (which we managed to get our hands on the night before). Scroll down for Episode 1 of the series
Stay tuned for Episode II, where we up the stakes, manhood on the line
