Kentucky Fried Chicken is bringing back its sensational bun-less wonder, a.k.a. the Double Down, a.k.a. the OG fast-food mashup-scourge that deploys two planks of fried chicken in place of the bleach-white bread that might otherwise sandwich its bacon, Monterey and Pepper Jack cheeses, and special-glow sauce. As a bonus, maybe, the relaunch will be accompanied by something called the “Double Down Dare,” perhaps because peer-pressure-based eating stunts are now essential to compete in an age when a new chain restaurant mashup food launches every 15 minutes.
