11 Abandoned Fast Food Chicken Items We Wish Were Brought Back
The KFC Double Down Dog was another of the chain’s short-lived experiments, but one that received a lot of attention. Similar to the limited-time Double Down sandwich, the Double Down dog made good (maybe?) use of its breaded chicken tenderloins, acting as a stand-in for what would normally be a bun, per People magazine. In this case, fried chicken replaced your standard hot dog bun to create the Double Down Dog.
But for those who caught a glimpse of the Double Down Dog on social media and were dying to try it (reviews were mixed, as HuffPost reported), there was bad news. KFC only sold this menu item at its locations in the Philippines and only for a limited time – but locations were selling the menu item left and right.
Maybe this is an item that needs to make a return to the United States? It would sit well with other similar Double Dog menu items that have been introduced in international venues, such as South Korea’s Zinger Double Down King, which featured two fried chicken fillets replacing a bun to contain a hamburger and bacon, or The Zinger Double Down Maxx from South Korea, which was like a breakfast version of the Double Down, with bacon, hash browns and cheese (via People).
