The latest in bacon news

Take a few days off from writing for Fat City and boy, things change dramatically in the world of bacon. If there’s any question about whether our society is headed for greatness or the future envisioned in Wall-E, the answer lines up pretty well with the latest bacon news. I’ll leave it to you to decide what the following portends. 

Since the Bacon Explosion burst on the scene, we’ve seen news that KFC is launching the Double Down — a bacon and cheese sandwich with fried chicken for bread and sauce which Charles Ferruzza correctly dubbed as “vaguely threatening.” So much for that healthy grilled chicken revolution. Although in its defense, KFC notes this sandwich has under 600 calories. It may be time to see one of these things in person — the pictures look goo-tastic.
