KFC's Newest Creation: The Double Down Dog

Health nightmare or poultry in motion?
 
KFC 's new Double Down Dog – a hot dog wrapped in a blanket of fried chicken and smothered with cheese sauce – has been described by critics as "another sign of the apocalypse".
 
Fast food chain KFC has introduced the "sandwich" as a follow-up to its original Double Down from 2010, which contained bacon and melted cheese squeezed between two chicken fillets. The Double Down was described as a "crime against food" upon release.
 
The new product has been launched at various outlets across the Philippines, but sales are limited to 50 a day per outlet.
 
The Frankenfood creation has already been lampooned on social media, with some saying the unfortunate name sounded like an embarrassing yoga position. Others were concerned the advertisement's picture looked better than the actual product.
 
"Could they have chosen a less horrifying picture of the Double Down Dog?" Wellington comedian Adam Wright posted on Twitter. "Honestly looks like some sort of alien incubation cell."
 
There are currently no plans to bring the Double Down Dog to New Zealand, but a KFC spokeswoman told Fairfax Media it would be considered if demand were high enough.
 
The original Double Down sandwich contained 540 calories, 32 grams of fat and 1380mg of sodium, which nutritionists said would take one hour of intense exercise to work off.
 
KFC has not released nutritional details of the Double Down Dog, but a single hotdog contains around 148 calories and 13g of fat.
