This was the 2010 landscape: No one could figure out what WikiLeaks were, we were all collectively processing Piranha 3D, and, of course, everyone was losing their minds over KFC's new novelty item, the Double Down. That chicken-on-chicken sandwich vanished as quickly as it appeared, but, this month, KFC is gearing up for its grand return.
Beginning next Monday, April 21, the chain will put Double Downs back on the menu, albeit for a limited time only. This could be your only chance to eat a bacon-and-cheese sandwich with fried chicken "buns" for the next four years, so make sure to start monitoring your local KFC with Assange-esque precision next week.
