Long before the fried chicken sandwich trend swept Canada, one trailblazer created the be-all-end-all in the scene. Of course, we’re talking about the KFC Double Down. For the first time in years, and almost a decade after its initial release, the sandwich is coming back.

For those who don’t remember, the Double Down uses fried chicken as the buns, with bacon, cheese, and a sauce as the filling. While the concept itself is larger than life, the Double Down, ironically, is about as healthy as other fast-food sandwiches of the same size. Not great (by any measure), but not immediately heart attack inducing.

Turns out, the sandwich made its return in the states earlier this year, and now KFC is ready for Canada to get a taste. The Double Down will be widely available starting October 4th, but some locations are already offering it. So, check-in if you’re craving a serious fried chicken sandwich this week.

Now, time for us to decide what adjustments we need to make in our diet to rationalize getting a KFC Double Down for ourselves. Maybe salads and smoothies for an entire day beforehand? Yeah, that’s cleansing enough.
