The KFC Double Down Sandwich Is Making an Epic Comeback

Enjoy this absolute indulgence of fried chicken for the third official time.

There’s just something so magical about KFC chicken. Whether it’s the alluring, secretive recipe or the plethora of warm memories we have with every bucket, there’s always a reason to love that tasty crunch. My siblings and I used to gather around the kitchen table and smack each other’s hands attempting to grab the best piece—some of my fondest memories. Family and fried chicken, what else could you possibly need?

Recently, KFC made some major menu changes. While some favorites got the boot, others are making a royal comeback. That’s where the KFC Double Down Sandwich comes in, and we’re ready to take a cluckin’ good bite.

What Is KFC’s Double Down Sandwich?

The Double Down Sandwich made its first ethereal appearance back in 2010. This out-of-the-box sandwich lacked a very important ingredient—buns. Instead, this fried wonder sported two pieces of crispy, hickory-smoked bacon, two slices of Monterey jack and pepper jack cheese, real mayo and spicy sauce packed between two Extra Crispy white meat chicken fillets. Yes, this is a real sandwich, and yes, it’s absolutely phenomenal.

The sandwich quickly gained a cult following due to its unusual nature. It explicitly celebrated the love of fried chicken, and it definitely worked. After it sadly left the menu in 2010, the fan hype was so great that KFC brought back the sandwich again in 2014. And now, they’re bringing it back for round three. To say we’re simply happy is the understatement of the year.

When Can I Get It?

The KFC Double Down Sandwich made its official comeback on March 6. Check out your local KFC to try the sandwich for yourself (if you haven’t already) while it’s still on the menu. Since this item hasn’t proven to be a permanent menu item yet, we have no idea how long it will be around for. All the more reason to bite down on this epic deal!
