Fast Food chains around the country have taken notice of KFC's successful introduction of the Double Down Sandwich.
They intend to keep up the momentum with some incredibly gross, but delicious, concoctions of their own.
All bets on good taste and nutrition are off.
Any and all ideas are on the table. Or Value menu®.
But word on the street is that these 10 food-like items are leading the pack.
10. The Turducken Sandwich
We hear Carl's Jr. is working on this one. Given the large size and massive amount of food, I'd say they will approach bombshell Christina Hendricks to do the TV spot.
9. Bacon Fries
If you're thinking French Fries topped with bacon, you ain't thinking lard enough.
We're talking bacon slabs, cut into French Fry strips and fried. If Burger King can do it with potatoes and apples, they can do it with bacon
Served with your choice of Cheddar cheese, Ranch or Thousand Island dips.
8. Taco Bell's new Pizza Baked Taco Pancake
It was a joke 5 years ago. Now, Taco Bell is seriously considering making this thing for real. (Minus the bag carrier with chili.)
7. Blow Fish Burger
Arthur Treacher's is seeking legal approval to mass produce a sandwich that might kill you. You must sign a waver before eating it.
6. Pork Lard Soup
A new value side dish from McD's. Under a buck for a bowl of hot pork lard. A soup so thick you need a Spork to slurp it.
5. The BratWORST
New from Wienerschnitzel. A brat wrapped in bacon, smothered in cheese, on a hero bun. Fried. Of course.
4. DD Donut Bacon Burger
Dunkin Donuts is testing a donut burger with cheese, mayo and bacon which can easily be reheated in a microwave and eaten on the go. Possible name: "The Brunch burger."
3. Chicken fried Steak Corn Dog
Not to be left out of the action, Nathan's Famous is going for broke with an update to its famed Corn Dog. Chicken fried steak folded over a corn dog. On a stick.
2. Pizza Hut Turkducken Lovers Pizza
Not to be outdone by Carl's, The Hut is got it's own turducken thing in the works. How's ground up turkucken covered with mozzarella cheese on a thick Chicago style crust, grab you?
1. The KFC Triple Down
KFC will keep pace by adding a third chicken slab to the Double Down. A Triple Down. That is probably the only definite on this list.
Come on, you know they will.
