The 'Horrifying' KFC Double Down Launches in New Zealand

New, 2 comments

KFC's Double Down is heading to New Zealand, and some people there are not happy: cookbook author/television cook Annabelle White is speaking out against it, calling it a "crime against food." She said, "People are going to look at this appalling construction and never want to eat it." (Which seems unlikely: a Facebook group called Bring the KFC Double Down Burger to New Zealand has almost 2,700 followers.)

Nutritionist Rosemary Stanton said, "We don't need more of these sorts of things. It's horrifying," and a spokesperson for KFC even admitted the sandwich is "not for everyone." At least they're getting the slightly-lower calorie grilled version?
