KFC Jamaica recently introduced a new addition to the menu, the KFC Double Down, a sandwich that the restaurant promises will bring “The flavour that changes it all”.

The 'Double Down' consists of two boneless, hot and spicy KFC chicken fillets sandwiching two slices of spicy Monterey Jack cheese, crispy bacon, and rich BBQ sauce.

KFC markets in the United States first introduced the Double Down in 2010 to rave critical reviews. Since then it has sparked a number of food debates across social media and has been the topic of a wide number of Muckbangs (live online food review videos).

Brand Manager of KFC Jamaica, Andrei Roper had much to say about the launch of the new menu item.

“We’re always looking to push food to the next level. We pride ourselves on being innovative; the Double Down is the first of its kind here in Jamaica and we’re excited about continuing to change the way our customers experience food,” Roper said.

The Double Down boasts a double punch of intense spiciness in the fillets with a well-balanced flavour brought out by the “kick” of the Monterey Jack cheese and the rich BBQ sauce, Roper added, noting that the addition of two crispy bacon strips adds something extra and brings the whole sandwich together.

“The best thing about the Double Down is that it has something for everybody. There’s something for the sandwich and Zinger lovers which we all know is the best sandwich in the world and something for our spicy KFC Chicken lovers as well,” said Roper. “All in all I’d say it’s a KFC chicken lover’s dream.”

The KFC Double Down is now available at all KFC locations islandwide for a limited time only.
