Why are so many people getting all hot and bothered over the KFC Double Down?

Below is a few out of the THOUSANDS of fast food items that have MORE calories and about the same or MORE fat than the KFC "Double Down" sandwich.

Taco Bell Grilled Stuff Burrito-700 cal. 30 grams fat
McDonalds Double Quater Pounder with Cheese-740 cal. 42 grams fat
Burger King Double Whopper w/ 2 slices of cheese and bacon-1100 cal 74 grams fat

Why is everyone freaking out about this ONE sandwhich?? These other items are advertised ALL THE TIME!

I'm not saying people should eat this stuff all the time or anything but it's about PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. It's your body. Put what you want in it.

I'm sorry but this resturant should not have to take this item off their menu. They aren't holding a gun to anyone's head forcing them to eat it.

These other resturants aren't getting flack about it so why is KFC?????????????????

  • It looks for yummy.

    My mind really wants one but my ass says NO. :( LOL.

    I don't get it. It's fast food. It's fattening. That's just how it is.

  • I don't see the big deal either. The same thing can be said about cigarettes or alcohol. It is legal and you can buy it. It isnt good for you and you have the choice to consume it or don't. Be responsible with your body. It's the only one you have.

  • I choose what I put into my body. If it looks good, I may try it, depending on a few factors. If it doesn't look good, there is nothing you could do to make me eat it. I cannot figure out why people in this country need other people to tell them what to buy, what to eat, what clothes to wear, etc. I don't care one fig what everyone else says about this particular sandwich, or any other product out there! Can't people decide things of this nature for themselves any more?

  • I just think it looks gross. It's the cheese and sauce that is a dealbreaker for me. If I ordered it without, I guess I would have two slabs of chicken and a piece of bacon. Yum (sarcasm).

  • Do you have a link? I haven't heard anything about it.

  • Don't we have enough fat in our diets. Why not offer a creative salad dish instead. Doesn't KFC still use hydrogenated fats to fry their chicken in? Eat it if you want be we are unhealthy enough as it is.
