We almost never got it, and now we can’t get enough. KFC’s controversial Double Down — a bunless fast-food creation that squeezes bacon, processed cheese and “the Colonel’s savoury secret sauce” between two slabs of fried chicken — has become the company’s most successful new menu item of all time in Canada.
Though it has been in Canada for less than two weeks, the company says by Sunday they will have sold more than 350,000 Double Downs across the country.
KFC Canada originally refused to sell the sandwich until it was first tested in the U.S. market.
When it debuted there in April, it quickly became the most successful “sandwich” in KFC’s history, selling more than 10 million in the first month.
Despite its success, the Double Down remains a limited time offer, and will only be on menus until Nov. 14.
