According to THIS SITE, "A quick calculation using the nutritional information on KFC's Web site reveals the Double Down Chicken Sandwich to be about 858 calories and 62.4 grams of fat -- about the same amount of calories and more fat than Wendy's 1/3-pound Triple with cheese.

However, McDonald's is now claiming that it ain't really all that bad. KFC provided the following nutritional values for the magic sandwich: Calories: 590; Calories from fat: 280; Total fat: 31g; Saturated fat: 10g; Trans fat: 0g; and Cholesterol: 190mg.

G-d help me for saying this, but that chicken "sandwich" looks rather tasty, not that I would actually eat it. Well, maybe I would try 1, just for the novelty of it. The basic flavors are similar to my beloved Arby's Chicken Bacon 'N Swiss-- A breaded chicken breast, swiss cheese, thick cut pepper bacon and honey mustard.

However, as far as that cheeseburger-on-Krispy-Kreme (and Paula Deen's concoction) goes, there's only one thing I can say...
