Reader Not Impressed With Reality Of KFC Double Down

Consumerist reader Bill popped into his local KFC in Houston today and found that they were selling the already infamous Double Down — better known as bacon and cheese wedged between slabs of fried chicken. And, as often happens when confronted with fast food that looks good in ads, Bill was a little let down by what he found inside.

Says Bill, who snapped these side-by-side pics of both the fried and grilled versions of the sandwich, “The KFC Double Down ‘sandwich’ looked a lot better in the advertising photos… This is something I’ll only be buying once; they’re expensive! $4.99 each.”

Here’s the full-size version of the pic. Is it just me, or does the cheesy interior look like a fried egg? Hmmm… now there’s an idea.
