For the first time since 2014, KFC today announced it is bringing back the iconic Double Down Sandwich for a period of just four weeks starting March 6, 2023.

The bun-less Double Down Sandwich features two 100 percent white meat filets sandwiching two slices of cheese, two pieces of crispy, hickory-smoked bacon, with either the Colonel’s real mayo or spicy sauce.
Originally introduced back in 2010, KFC sold more than 10 million sandwiches in the first month and due to much hype and fanfare, the brand brought it back for a limited time in April of 2014.
New Bacon & Cheese Chicken Sandwich
In addition to the Double Down, KFC is also introducing a new, premium Bacon & Cheese Chicken Sandwich, made with a double-breaded, Extra Crispy, 100 percent white meat filet, a slice of cheese, two pieces of hickory-smoked bacon, the Colonel’s real mayo and pickles on a freshly-toasted brioche bun.
The new Bacon & Cheese Chicken Sandwich will also be available at KFC starting March 6 for a limited time.
Additionally, on Sunday, March 5, KFC will host a Double Down Drop, allowing select fans early access to get a first taste one day before the rest of the country. Super fans will have a chance to sign up for early access via kfcdoubledowndrop.com on March 2, 2023. Double Down enthusiasts will need to act fast, because the pre-order is only available on a first-come, first-served basis to the first 2,014 fans as a nod to when the Double Down was last offered on KFC US menus.
