KFC are finally bringing their ‘most successful’ burger ever to the UK… but only for a limited time

10

KFC has announced that it will launch its infamous Double Down sandwich in the UK later this month.

The Double Down has been hotly anticipated since being launched in the US and features a double helping of Original Recipe Chicken instead of a bread bun.

 The Double Down will hit UK KFC restaurants on October 9

The breadless burger features crispy bacon, melted Monterey Jack cheese and barbecue sauce sandwiched between two tasty chicken breast fillets.

In the past, KFC has received hundreds of tweets and messages calling for the sandwich to be launched in the UK – and now British chicken fans are finally getting their wishes granted.

The drop date for the cult sandwich has been pegged as Monday October 9, but customers will have to be quick – it will only be available for a limited time.

The famed burger will be available for six weeks before disappearing off menus once more.

Jack Hinchliffe, Innovation Director at KFC UK & Ireland, said of the Double Down: “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.

 Customers will have to be quick if they want a Double Down as it will only be available for six weeks

“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!”

Needless to say, KFC lovers are overjoyed at the news.

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

Previously, we revealed that KFC menus could be having a huge hipster overhaul.

And we reported on the Nan, 60, who has worked at KFC for 40 years and served six MILLION chicken pieces.
