KFC Double Down is finally on UK menus – but it's only available between THESE dates

The finger licking’ good Double Down says no to bread buns and yes to doubling Original Recipe chicken. 



Not only does it feature two succulent Original Recipe chicken fillets, Double Down’s ingredients have been chosen to enhance the famous 11 herbs and spices. 

Sandwiched between the chicken fillets is crisp bacon, melted Monterey Jack cheese and barbecue sauce, housed in a neat, black, easy to handle cardboard wrapper. 

Quite simply, this ain’t no ordinary sandwich. 

KFC has received hundreds of tweets and messages calling for the sandwich to be launched in the UK. 

Chicken fanatics can now breathe a sign of relief as the drop date into restaurants is announced as Monday 9th October. 

But it will be available for just six weeks only. 

Jack Hinchcliffe, innovation direction at KFC UK and Ireland, said: “There’s been so much excitement for the Double Down since it first launched to the US in 2010. 

“It’s sold out in every country that it’s been released in, so we’re anticipating it’ll be a sell-out success here in the UK. 

“Fandom has gone wild over the past few years on social media, and we’ve even had reports of our customers taking things into their own hands by hacking the menu to create the sandwich. 

“It seems people agree with us…there’s nothing better than an Original Recipe fillet, so if you can’t beat it – double it.” 

The Double Down is priced from £4.79 or from £5.79 with fries and a drink.
