Would You Try the KFC Double Down?

Last August, in a This Is Why You're Fat kind of moment, KFC began testing the Double Down in select markets, a sandwich that contains two pieces of bacon, melted slices of Swiss and pepper jack cheese, and "the Colonel's sauce" stuffed between two slices of fried chicken. It seems almost too crazy to be true, but KFC has announced it will be rolling out the behemoth nationwide on April 12. I'm not going to lie — I'm kind of curious to try it, but at 540 calories, 32 grams of fat, and 1,380 milligrams of sodium, it definitely won't be a regular part of my life. How do you feel about the sandwich going mainstream?
