KFC readies all-meat sandwich

KFC's newest menu item gives new meaning to the phrase, "Finger-licking good."

It's called the Double Down and it's two pieces of bacon, two slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and the franchise's trademark Colonel's Sauce, all packed between two boneless fried chicken fillets.

This breadless wonder made its first appearance in Rhode Island and Nebraska in August for public testing, and it looks like it passed. According to KFC.com, the sandwich will launch across the U.S. on April 12.

"This product is so meaty, there's no room for a bun," boasts the Double Down page on KFC.com, which features a clock counting down to the second until launch day.

The grilled Double Down contains 460 calories, with 23 grams of fat and 1,430 milligrams of sodium, according to KFC.com.

Original recipe Double Down has 540 calories, 32 g of fat and 1,380 mg of sodium.

By comparison, the U.S. daily recommended intake is 2,000 calories, 65 g of fat and 2,300 mg of sodium.

There's no word yet on when, if ever, this new menu item will launch in Canada.
