Just so wrong

Here's a little tip for the Kentucky Fried Chicken product research department.  If people need to ask whether your new sandwich is an April Fools joke, perhaps you should give a second thought to the date of announcement... or better yet a second thought to the product.

Yes, folks, that is a "sandwich" comprised of two fried chicken breasts wrapped around bacon and cheese.  I can't quite put my finger on what is so wrong with this picture.  Cheese? Good.  Bacon?  Everything is better with bacon.  Fried chicken?  I'm not above indulging in a little fried chicken now and then.  But I have absolutely no desire to try this, even if Jason at Food Geekery does dub it the Best. Thing. Ever.

Maybe that's why I'm afraid of it.  What if I liked it?  That will remain a hypothetical question for me.  What do you think?  Are you tempted?  Or simply disturbed?


  1. It's actually the perfect sandwich for those of us trying to cut back on carbs. There are so few substantial carb-free options that I will DEFINITELY be giving this a thorough taste test. It may end up being a case of sandwich engineering genius.

  2. Nicki - that's actually a great point about how it would fit into a low carb diet. I was surprised to find that KFC lists the caloric content at only 540 calories for the fried option and 460 if you request the chicken grilled instead.

    Come back and let me know what you think of it!

  3. I bet I would like it. Except that I don't eat things like that ever ever ever. Probably in case I would want to eat them every day.

  4. The fried chicken actually sort of looks like McDonald's hashbrowns. Yum that would be a tasty sandwich!
