The Consumerist is up in arms about a new KFC sandwich, which will "start killing people nationwide April 12":
Last August, we wrote about the "Double Down," a mysteriously tempting (and potentialy lethal) new food item being tested by KFC. For those coming late to the story, it's bacon and cheese sandwiched between two pieces of fried chicken. And now, many months later, I'll finally be able to get my hands on one.
At first I thought it might be an April's Fools joke, but the post was dated 4/2/2010, and a visit to the KFC website confirmed it.
As far as lethal foods go, however, this strikes me as small potatoes. In the lethality arms race, it can't compare to, say, the bacon explosion:
Here’s what you’ll need…
- 2 pounds thick cut bacon
- 2 pounds Italian sausage
- 1 jar of your favorite barbeque sauce
- 1 jar of your favorite barbeque rub
Layering, rolling, dousing with sauce follows to produce a log of bacon, sausage, and BBQ sauce. The Globe describes the end result as a "woven lattice of bacon strips stuffed with pork sausage and more bacon, then rolled up, smoked, and basted with barbecue sauce." Now that's what I call good eats.
If that appeals, you may wish to consider the Bad For You Cookbook, one of my all-time favorites:
