You learn something new every day, it is said, and today I learned that the KFC Double Down, still one of the most notorious fast food monstrosities eight years after its having been unleashed on the world, is actually quite popular in Canada. Now, KFC Canada is bringing the sandwich back, but with a significant twist that will make Canadian KFC locations the envy of every other place on Earth. Here’s KFC Canada’s chief marketing officer Samantha Redman to explain the Waffle Double Down:
“The Double Down is our most talked about and demanded menu item in Canada, so we wanted to do something special exclusively for Canadian fans. We know fans have been craving chicken and waffles on our menu, and we’re happy to provide this unique take on the trendy food pairing. The maple aioli sauce is a sweet nod to KFC’s Canadian fans.”
KFC reportedly claims that the Waffle Double Down is the first time the company has used waffles in any of its products, so it might be worth a trip up north to try one if you’re not already lucky enough to live in Canada.
