KFC Welcomes Back Its Bun-Less Double Down Sandwich And Introduces New Bacon & Cheese Chicken Sandwich


After a nearly 10-year hiatus, KFC is bringing back its cult-favorite Double Down Sandwich alongside the all-new Bacon & Cheese Chicken Sandwich on March 6, 2023.

KFC’s iconic bun-less Double Down Sandwich consists of two 100% white meat chicken filets sandwiching two slices of melty cheese, two slices of crispy, hickory-smoked bacon, and your choice of either the Colonel’s real mayo or spicy sauce.

KFC first launched the Double Down in 2010 and sold over 10 million sandwiches in the first month alone. Following a lot of hype and a flurry of excitement among KFC fans, the fast-food chicken chain brought back the bun-less sandwich once again for a limited time in 2014.

Both the Classic and Spicy Double Down fried chicken sandwiches can be enjoyed a la carte for a suggested price of $8.99 each, or as part of a combo with a side dish of your choice and a medium drink for $11.99 (may vary).

Additionally, KFC is also welcoming a new, premium Bacon & Cheese Chicken Sandwich that features a double-breaded, Extra Crispy, 100% white meat chicken filet, a slice of melty cheese, and two pieces of crispy, hickory-smoked bacon, all topped with the Colonel’s real mayo and pickles on a freshly toasted brioche bun.

Just like the Double Down fried chicken sandwich, you can get the Bacon and Cheese fried chicken sandwich on its own for $6.49, or as part of combo meal that includes your choice of one side and a medium drink for a suggested price of $9.78 (may vary).

As part of the launch, KFC will be hosting a Double Down Drop event on March 5 that will allow some fans to get a first taste of the returning fan-favorite bun-less sandwich one day before anyone else. Fans can sign up for early access through kfcdoubledowndrop.com on March 2. Double Down enthusiasts must act fast, because pre-ordering is available on a first-come, first-served basis to the first 2,014 fans who sign up for the Double Down Drop.

Both the Double Down Chicken Sandwich and the new Bacon & Cheese Chicken Sandwich can be found at participating KFC locations nationwide for a limited time starting March 6, 2023. Prices may vary by location.
