Because the best thing since sliced bread, is fried chicken
Last year, the US citizens of Rhode Island and Nebraska were subjected to a sinister culinary experiment, where all their bread was replaced by delicious fried chicken coated in a secret blend of eleven herbs and spices. The experiment was deemed a success, and now the whole of the United States is about to be subjected to the KFC Double Down.

There are very few official photographs available of the white meat vampire - despite it going on sale nationwide in a few days time, you won't find details of it on their US website.

That's 100 calories more than a Big Mac, and three times the fat - but three times the taste, surely?
