KFC attempts to top the Double Down....



With a chicken skin & bacon sandwich



Kentucky Fried Cruelty is allegedly testing a new sandwich at select stores. What kind of sandwich? Try "5 layers of fried chicken skin, lumped on a bun and topped with white american cheese and bacon." Mmmm, I can already feel my intestines trying to escape out my butthole. Per somebody who had the misfortune of trying one:

Nasty. The richness of all that fatty seasoned skin is totally overwhelming. It's also tongue-parchingly-salty.


I started to gag and got that "brushing the back of your tongue" feeling. Had to spit it out. In KFC's defense, the sandwich was luke-warm after taking the pics. But I doubt it would be much better hot.

With this latest move and the Double Down's success, KFC may be catching up to Hardees/BK in the "making sandwiches so nauseating they generate buzz" dept.

I don't know about you, but when I close my eyes and think "delicious", a pile of fried chicken skin is definitely in the top three. Okay, okay -- top ten. Thousand. Right behind a football.

Hit the jump for several more shots of the WTFery.
Totally disgusting, yet completely American.

Re: KFC attempts to top the Double Down....

I think it's even more American to fall for obvious web hoaxes.

Other Skinwich test stores:
■Ekaf, Maine – Colbert Blvd.
■Tihsllub, Oklahoma – Corner of 3rd & Twain.
■Eritas, California – Dense St.

Good thing you're "Anomynous" or else we would all be telling you what a gullible jackass you are.

Oh who am I kidding, we're going to do that anyway!

But that's Goblin backwards!

Actually, they might serve these there, but they'd turn them into green goo before eating them.

Re: KFC attempts to top the Double Down....

The biggest tip-off is that sandwich is downright beautiful. If that were actually from a KFC, it would be smashed and lopsided.

Looks delicious. The skin is the best part of fried chicken.

Chicken and waffles is actually a pretty common pairing.
