I’m old enough to remember when the KFC Double Down sandwich was first introduced, and it was little more than a tossed off novelty product, designed to get attention from late night comedians and early morning radio DJs. But now it’s mainstream enough to generate followups, like the upcoming KFC Zinger Double Down.
Of course, if you’re reading this outside of the UK and Ireland, the KFC Zinger Double Down is more of a general interest story than something you’ll soon be able to cram down your gullet. But in those magical realms, the tweet below reveals that the sandwich is all too real:

The KFC Zinger Double Down will reportedly “feature two fiery-hot Zinger chicken fillets, melted cheese, hot salsa, pepper mayo and the ultimate Double Down’s signature crispy bacon.” And hopefully for the adventurous eaters all over the world, a wider release for the sandwich isn’t too far in the future.
