Is the Double Down the most delicious sandwich ever?

Nate Silver over at FiveThirtyEight ran the nutrition numbers on KFC’s new Double Down and found that it just may be the most unhealthy sandwich ever. It is not so much that the Double Down has a load of calories (it only has 540), but rather that it contains more sodium, fat and┬ácholesterol┬áper calorie than any other burger he looked at.

Of course when I hear about something with a lot of salt and fat I generally start licking my lips. After all, these are the flavors that make food so delicious and there is some evidence we are addicted to them.

So while the Double Down may be the most unhealthy sandwich ever from a ‘nutrition’ stand point. The flip side is that packs in more deliciousness in each bite than any other sandwich on the market today.

American food science at its finest!

    To pack in even MORE deliciousness you need to head over to In-N-Out for the Double-Double Down!!!

      That is spectacular. Now we just need a map of where KFC and In-N-Out co-exist.
