When the KFC Double Down sandwich debuted in 2010, it left many of us pondering this existential question: America, just how gross are we if this concoction can be called a “sandwich?” In case you missed Double Down-mania, its “bun” consisted of two fried chicken filets, and the filling was bacon, Monterey Jack cheese and “Colonel’s sauce.”
The Double Down was a hit, though, with 10 million of them sold in the first month. The fast-food giant eventually brought the Double Down to overseas markets, including Japan, South Africa and Australia. And it appeared back home for a limited time in 2014, with KFC declaring, “Bread is dead.”

Before any American diners get too excited, the Double Down Dog is currently only available in the Philippines. And even there, this gastric gauntlet is not exactly easy to come by. According to KFC’s Philippines Facebook page, they are only selling 50 of them a day at 11 select locations. And the limited time item is only being sold from Jan. 26-27. Keep dreaming, America, and maybe some day this gluttonous concoction will come to our shores.
