A controversial meatwich that called in Michael 'Slats' Slater (Australian Cricket legend) and the Good Chartlotte twins (apparently vegetarians and PETA activists, if Google can be believed) for a feel good summer campaign.
Controversy aside, since the moment I saw this (I was overseas the first time it came out) I have wanted to try it. So... I did.
At Caloundra KFC on Australia's Sunshine Coast I ordered my Double. I was given the option of Original or Zinger (spicy) and went for Original.
In KFC's never-let-me-down way, the chips were tasty but cold, and the gravy was scalding hot.
The Double: it was, well, it was really tasty. The Chicken was delicious, if anything maybe a tad too dry. there was bacon and BBQ sauce, and 2 slices of cheese, for a good meat-to-cheese ratio.
It was smaller than I thought it would be, but in saying that, I was full for the rest of the day.
Would I recommend it- yes. Would I have one again- yes. Is $8.25 wayyyy too much to pay for it- yes.
It should be noted this is most definitely a SOMETIMES food!
