As we get ready for our Best of Food issue, there remains one sandwich that won’t be crowned the best, at least for the foreseeable future.

KFC’s Double Down sandwich was debuted down in the States today but isn’t available in Canada, according to my call to the South Albert location.

They’re being pretty liberal with the word “sandwich,” as the Double Down consists of two pieces of chicken – the “bread” – along with two slices of Pepperjack cheese and two slices of bacon. So, less a sandwich and more a post on This Is Why You’re Fat.

I asked the lady who picked up at KFC if she knew what the Double Down was.

“I heard it was some kind of meat and cheese and bacon, but it’s just down in the States,” she said.

For the time being, Canadians will either have to eat it while down in the U.S. or simply experience it vicariously.
