Be still my beating heart: KFC’s Double Down hits Hong Kong

Hong Kong KFC outlets let the Double Down Dog off the leash on Thursday, bringing a new breed of the abomination aptly described as an “unwieldy fried meat Oreo” to a franchise near you.

The Double Down Burger originally began life as an April Fools’ Day press release, but within a few short years it gave rise to an all-too-real variation in the United States, Canada, Japan, Korea, the Philippines and elsewhere.

Darkening Hong Kong’s shores is a truncated version of the heart-stopping original: two deep-fried chicken breast “buns” enclosing bacon and molten cheese.
