TORONTO — KFC Canada is bringing back the Double Down —– the bun-less, all-chicken sandwich — with a Canadian twist: a waffle.
Available for a limited time starting on March 26, KFC’s Waffle Double Down features all-chicken fillets sandwiched around a Belgian waffle and drizzled in a maple-aioli sauce.
“The Double Down is our most talked about and demanded menu item in Canada, so we wanted to do something special exclusively for Canadian fans,” says Samantha Redman, chief Marketing officer, KFC Canada. “We know fans have been craving chicken and waffles on our menu, and we’re happy to provide this unique take on the trendy food pairing. The maple-aioli sauce is a sweet nod to KFC’s Canadian fans.”
After it debuted in 2010, Canadians made the Double Down KFC’s best-selling new menu item ever — selling more than 350,000 in its first 10 days. The Waffle Double Down joins the Zinger Double Down as a variation on the classic recipe.
