The world faces the 'horror' burger, the latest offering of KFC, a burger with no buns, but two slices of bacon and cheese between two slabs of fried chicken!
Named the Double Down, it has already been very popular in the US and Canada. Now it is being aggressively advertised in Australia as the 'manliest' burger available. Targeting at men, KFC is marking the launch with a "Month of ManTime" in which Australian men are encouraged to enjoy more time with their mates.
In a country where obesity is becoming a nightmare to nutritionists and anti-obesity campaigners, this burger is, as Dr. Rosemary Stanton says, "horrifying." The 212g original recipe version has 1939kj and 22.3g of fat, while the 232g Zinger version packs 35.7g of fat 2515kj.
KFC has recommended that the Double Down should be enjoyed as an occasional treat and part of a balanced lifestyle.
