Double Down to cross border

Double Down Sandwich It turns out that I won’t need to go on a shopping trip in order to enjoy the new sandwich sensation from KFC.

Many readers (thanks to J-F for sharing’s analysis and Laura for sharing treehugger’s article, and to all others who were afraid I would miss this culinary event.)

Two Original Recipe chicken breasts (filet removed), two pieces of bacon, two slices of processed pepper jack cheese, and of course, the Colonel’s Sauce. What’s not to like?

One acute observer would note that the american recipe calls for two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese – which sounds better than the processed pepper jack cheese announced in Canada.

Other differences: the American version is 540 calories, 32 grams of fat 1,380 milligrams of sodium while the Canadian version is also 540 calories, but only 30 grams of fat. Oh, and a paltry 1,740 milligrams of sodium.

I guess Canadians like salt more than Americans – although Health Canada’s recommended daily sodium intake ranges from 1000 mg per day to 1500 mg per day.

Also, the healthier grilled version of the Double Down, available in the USA, is not offered up North.

The Waffle will most certainly try it out for you, dear Wafflers – but he’ll have to hurry, as the breadless sandwich is available only until November 14th.
