Will They Build It? KFC (Elvis Double Down Sandwich)

Posted By: on April 27, 2010

Where: Kentucky Fried Chicken
What: KFC Fried Chick Double Down, Toast, Jif Creamy Peanut Butter & Banana
Cost: $9.54
Success: Yes! (sort of…you can see the official WTBI criteria here)

Previous Will They Build Its?
Taco Bell (Nacho Cheesy Blackjack Volcano Gordita Crunch)
McDonald’s (Big McSausage Egg Surf & Turf Mac)
Burger King (Double Bacon Rodeo State Fair Cheeseburger)Featured on Conan O’Brien
Arby’s (Every Animal on the Farm Sandwich)
Long John Silver’s (Deep-fried Bottom of the Sea Wrap)
KFC & Krispy Kreme (Fried Chicken Luther Double Down)

We just couldn’t stop at the KFC & Krispy Kreme Fried Chicken Luther Double Down Sandwich…we knew there was just one more in this beast…so we had to take the innate awesomeness of the KFC Double Down and the artery clogging Elvis Burger and combine the two (producing something on the level the spawn of David Beckham and Posh Spice) and summon the KFC Elvis Fried Chicken Double Down. I think the King would be proud. Admittedly this is probably all we (and I’m sure you too) and take of the whole Double Down madness. So here she is in all her glory:

There have been a host of other Double Down concoctions (from the Double Double Down to the Quad Down and more) but this may just be the tastiest of them all. I don’t have an official calorie count but my estimates would be near the 1000 mark (I had a lot of peanut buttery goodness on there).

I pity the foo too thickheaded to get past what they may consider ingredients that don’t mesh well together. The creaminess of the peanut butter, the sweetness of the banana and the saltiness of the Double Down dance on your tongue like Nicole Scherzinger (with the bacon adding a twist and a dip at the end). I highly recommend you heed my words and give this a try. Here is how you make this wonderful meal:

Step 1: Purchase KFC Double Down, Bread, Banana & Peanut Butter

Step 2: Toast bread, slice banana

Step 3: Smother toast with peanut butter, add banana slices, add Double Down and assemble

Step 4: Prepare yourself for a Nirvana like experience

Step 5: Eat up

Step 6: Slip into blissful coma while drool rolls down your chin

  1. Even though I love all of these ingredients separately, I'll admit that the combination of them freaks even me out.

    NOT THAT I DON'T WANT TO EAT THIS RIGHT NOW, mind you. I think it's the way you made the peanut butter glop off the sides of the chicken.

    Peanuts and cheese, man . . . so weird.

    Part of the key that makes the regular Elvis sandwich so good is frying both pieces of bread in at least 1Tbsp (each) of salted butter, (I add a little extra salt to mine). Once the bread has soaked up all the butter, the peanut butter melts and warms the bananas. Then, you can slap it around the double-down and see how it goes.
