KFC is Bringing Back the Double Down and It Now Has a Waffle

By Simon Hung

You may have to put your fitness goals on hold, because KFC is bringing the Double Down sandwich back to Canada after a three-year absence and it's even more gluttonous than before, because it now includes a waffle.

The Waffle Double Down will be available to order starting March 26 and is the third variant of the iconic sandwich, following the Original and Zinger flavours.

The Waffle Double Down marks the first time KFC has included waffles on their menu.

The Original Double Down features two chicken fillets instead of traditional bread buns, with a slice of cheese, bacon and aioli sauce sandwiched in between. The Zinger flavour uses spicy aioli sauce and the new Waffle Double Down will have a Belgian waffle and Canadian maple aioli sauce in between the two chicken fillets.

The Double Down originally debuted in Canada in October 2010, making headlines across the country thanks in part to a viral marketing campaign and because the sandwich was seen as extremely unhealthy -- according to The Globe and Mail, an Original Double Down has 540 calories, 30 grams of fat and 1740 milligrams of sodium.

Nonetheless, the Double Down was a hit and 350,000 sandwiches were sold within 10 days of its launch. The sandwich was discontinued within a month, but later re-appeared on the menu in brief stints in May 2011, March 2012 and most recently in August 2015.

The Waffle Double Down will be available for a limited time only in KFC restaurants or through online delivery. KFC has also promised exclusive Double Down-related promotions in select Canadian cities -- keep an eye on @KFC_Canada on Twitter for updates.

    • If there ever was a time to test my resolve, this is it.

      2000mg of sodium isn't too bad. Did you know a pinch of salt is already 400mg? Or 2 table spoon or soy sauce is over 1000mg.
