KFC's Double Down is no bread-winner

I won't spend another $5.65 on KFC's new Double Down because the sandwich is naked. So what that it tastes OK. Or that it has enough hunger-slaying protein to train for Mr. Olympia. It isn't worth the price of the bread that it doesn't include. That's the meat of its problem. It's almost all meat.

The Double Down -- two fried-chicken patties that act as the bun around slices of bacon and pepper jack cheese slathered in a mayo-based sauce -- is more like a Westernized Chicken Kiev. Give me buns for my hard-earned bread. Leaving out the roll diminishes the perception of value.
