This is a stuffed jalapeño covered in pepperoni, wrapped in phyllo dough, deep fried and then topped like a pepperoni pizza. Though it's much simpler to call it by its well-earned nickname: The Drool Factory.
If you haven't heard of it, the Double Down is a sandwich where, instead of pieces of bread, KFC uses fried chicken. The inside of the sandwich is bacon, cheese and the Colonel's secret sauce, which is most definitely mayonnaise-based.
As someone who's tried it, my honest complaint is that there's not enough skin. They use a skinless breast. What am I, on a diet? I didn't come to KFC to make good choices.
Maybe you read about the Double Down and your first thought was, "Bacon and cheese are not proper sandwich fillings. A proper sandwich needs real meat." If you're that crazy, good news: KFC made a hot dog just for you.
Sometimes you look at deep-fried fair foods, like deep-fried bubblegum, and you say, "Why? Why did someone do this?" But then sometimes you look at something and say, "Why didn't someone do this sooner?"
You know a real chef prepared this because the sauce is on the outside. This wasn't just some amateur throwing foods together helter skelter. This is a person who is deliberate in their distribution of textures and flavors. And here you are, thinking it's an abomination that someone slopped together. You know nothing of food.
Whereas the deep-fried Big Mac was put together with care, this corndog pizza was not. Your judgement is deserved here. A person who can't even remove the sticks from their corndog pizza is the kind of person who doesn't wash their vegetables. Or their hands.
This is a palate cleanser after the Krispy Kreme donut. Can you even imagine how good this would be with ketchup? Of course you can. Because this is practically an ad for ketchup. The headline would read, "Can you even imagine how good this would be with ketchup?"
Bacon is so versatile. It can be a topping. It can be a sandwich-filler. Or, as we saw in the last photo, it can be a meal all on its own. You didn't imagine it could be glassware, filled with liquid cheese, but someone did. And you will love them forever.
