OBESITY crisis? What obesity crisis? KFC will tomorrow unleash on the
market its latest fat-and-sodium laden creation that has done away with the
most basic of burger ingredients - the bun.

  1. The Double Down instead has bacon, sauce and two slices of melted cheese between two pieces of deep fried chicken, The Daily Telegraph reported.

    The 212g original recipe version has 1939kj and 22.3g of fat, while the 232g Zinger version packs 35.7g of fat 2515kj, well more than a quarter of the average daily adult intake of 8700kj.

    However, the kilojoule punch is much less than a McDonald's Double Quarter Pounder, which hits a mammoth 3560kj, while Macca's Grand Crispy Chicken is 2510kj.

    Leading nutritionist Dr Rosemary Stanton labelled KFC's Double Down burger "horrifying".

    In the grips of an obesity epidemic, Australians did not need any more fattening burgers, Dr Stanton said. "Two-thirds of men and more than half of women are overweight. We don't need more of these sorts of things. It's horrifying," Dr Stanton said.

    Nutritionist Susie Burrell said it would take an hour of intense exercise to burn off the 1939kj.

    "It's gross over-consumption because it is above and beyond a regular burger," Ms Burrell said.

    KFC said the Double Down should be enjoyed as an occasional treat and part of a balanced lifestyle.

    A huge hit in the US and Canada with 15 million sold, the Double Down is being squarely marketed at men in the Down Under marketing campaign.

    Describing it as one of the "manliest" burgers available, KFC is marking the launch with a "Month of ManTime" in which Aussie men are encouraged to enjoy more time with their mates.
