...and it comes in a little black bowl with a KFC lid.

I'm talkin' about them yummy KFC bowls. Those things are my new addiction (sorry Cae. I've gone back to fast food :cry:). I don't like veggies so I simply order it with no corn and all 4 times I've gotten one they've said that since I don't get corn I can get more potatoes in the bowl!! Jackpot!!

It's the perfect blend of man food. You've got potatoes. You've got chicken. You've got cheese. You've got gravy. That's the 4 basic man food groups.

Run out and get one, now!!!!!!

I like the commercials for those bowls. Topping it all off with gravy is...well, that's gravy.

We take eighteen ounces of sizzling ground beef, and soak it in rich, creamery butter, then we top it off with bacon, ham, and a fried egg. We call it the Good Morning Burger.

Now Slicker's KFC bowls (which always remind me of the Good Morning Burger commercial), those are real.

The KFC bowls looked ridiculous in the commercial, but my sister talked me into splitting one with her this weekend and it was way better than I expected. It was also not as small as I feared it'd be. The corn is integral to the whole shebang though, plus it'll help move it along your intestines when the mashed potatoes, fried chicken, gravy, and cheese decide to invite ol' colon cancer along for the party. ;) My sister asked them for a side of bbq sauce, so naturally they put it on top instead, but that worked out too. We were considering asking them to substitute the popcorn chicken they use in the bowl with their bbq chicken shreds, maybe next time.

And finally KFC has some freakin' car food! Took them long enough!!! You ever see the take-out packaging for a 2-piece meal with 2 sides? This HUGE styrofoam hexagon sectioned plate with a massive corresponding top, totally car-unfriendly, even the old box with little styro cups was more manageable!

Good thing the Good Morning Burger (as far as I know) is only a Simpsons joke.

Carl's Jr actually has the "Breakfast Burger," which isn't too far off. A quarter pound of hamburger, ketchup, mayo, a fried egg, and hash browns. It's to die for, but I can actually hear my arteries clog when I even think about one.

Those KFC bowls look a little too involved. I mean hey, fatty, is it that hard to eat the food separately? Plus, I just can't imagine that those different tastes would mix well together.

But if it's good then I may have to rethink it some day. I'm still mad at KFC for changing their Triplecrunch sandwiches to the Doublecrunch. :mad:

The KFC Potato Bowl rules. Like mentioned it can be eaten while in a car, it gives you more chicken than I would have thought, and they cover it in gravy. <insert Homer Simpson quote here> I just wish they'd throw in some breat, but I can always order that on the side. I've gotten them twice already and might be tempted for a KFC run tomorrow.

Dunno how much they are by Slicker, but I paid $3.99 which seemed a bit high.

Apparently they're going to release another Famous Bowl with rice instead of mashed potatoes.

There's a reason dining tables were invented.Here in America, the dinner table is where you throw your mail on your way in the door after slaving away at your thankless, underpaying job all day. The car is where you eat your lunch so you don't have to suffer more of your coworkers for your precious 30 minutes of freedom in the middle of your workday. I know it's hard for you to understanding since it's so different living on a tiny little damp island where everything is just 5 metres away. :p

I tried one tonight despite my wanting to completely ban KFC from my diet- it was good, very filling. A definite sign that I really need to get my body in shape cause I'm so used to overeating I thought that I was still hungry, but 10 minutes after letting it digest I feel completely full. My mind is lagged. :(

I think every once in awhile on a special occasion I shall get one of these as it was very delicious and just overall convenient. :D This would be PERFECT for a drive-in movie!

Has anyone kept the bowls? I thought it was styrofoam at first but after trying to demolish it, found it's textured plastic. So, I decided to keep the bowl and the lid for future use. The meal is what, $4? So...free container. :p

As much as I am repulsed by this Bowl, I guess it could be worse...like JamJam on Sunday during our BBQ - a tall, thin man who killed 4 brats (all with buns) and then took down a medium Blizzard at Dairy Queen. Well, at least we walked the mile round trip to get to DQ. I have to admit to being jealous of the man's ability to metabolize such a meal. :D

By comparison Slick, a serving of four brats and a Blizzard would equate to a combined 4 and a half KFC Bowls (in terms of not-good-for-you-ness). :p

As far as gyros, though, there is a place here called Captain Pete's House of Gyros. I'm not sure where that name comes from, but their gyros are perfect. I made the mistake of addicting my brother to them and he lives two hundred miles away. He almost stopped returning my calls.

Anybody ever notice that the name "Arby's" is phonetically representative of "R.B.'s" which could stand for "Roast Beef"?

Sorry Slick but I tried one of those bowls today and it wasn't that great. Like most KFC it was rather pricey plus after I was done (it didn't take long) I was still hungry. I think I could have eaten 3-4 of those things but I don't have an extra kidney to sell so I just had one. After all that bashing I will say though its not bad BUT it costs too much and its too small.

Based on the shear weight of love for the famous bowls on this thread, my friends and I each had one today. We each declared it pretty tasty. Now, my take was that it largely tasted like their mashed potatoes, but their mashed potatoes are good, so I can't complain. We all ordered with corn. It did need more cheese, though. All in all, I'm not sure I'll ever order one again, but that's mostly because I never eat at KFC, not because it wasn't good.

Cold fried chicken is pretty good, which is good, because it doesn't microwave very well and no one wants to put it in an oven when they want a quick snack.

Cold fried chicken is pretty good, which is good, because it doesn't microwave very well and no one wants to put it in an oven when they want a quick snack.This is so true! The bones get cold and the microwave tries to heat them up first (because microwaves work from the inside-out), it's no good. The only thing I don't like about cold fried chicken is when there's a huge thing of hard grease at the bottom and attached to the chicken once its cold, I've stopped leaving cold fried chicken in its original container because of that, it's nasty. Cold pizza is better and it microwaves better, but I wouldn't give up cold fried chicken... cold turkey. NOOOOO!!! BAD PUN!!!!!

If I read that correctly, Trix has stated that "onions cut the cheese"

I don't know why I tghink that's so funny, I think it has something to do with some of the other culinary, dietary and general lifestyle tips that JT likes to dispense from time to time (which in turn give Caesar pre-made signature material)


And since no-one else has brought it up- anyoneo catch that story in the news wherein KFC was fined (or something like that, punished in some fashion involving large bread) for using "real bad for ya" oils in unhealthy proportions?? I thought of all you folks when I heard it, qand it kinda would kill the thread...

Oh and as for your "pound o' cheese" JT- an alternate marketing scheme could be something about how bad osteoporosis is, and how by hardening up your arteries with all thet rich goodness, you'd be building a back-up skeleton , thus improving you quality of life in your golden years.. surprised that angle has never been used yet....

According to this page (http://www.kfc.com/doubledown/) on KFC's site, the grilled double down has more sodium than the fried/original recipe.

Didn't this thing start off as a April Fool's Day joke a couple of years ago? It seems like I had been hearing about it for a while before it came out this week.

I really just want to try it once. My current favorite right now is the 7 piece dark meat meal. Add in a second large side, and you've got 2 meals for $12.00. And I don't eat at KFC very often, either.

It was released as a trial in Providence and Omaha a while back, and only expanded nationally recently. I don't know how good of a test that was, since Nebraska is not exactly the culinary capital of the world. :p

I tried the famous bowl a few years ago and I remember it as a weird mishmash of crap wherein the whole was far less than the sum of its parts. I'm similarly repulsed yet intrigued by the double down . . . I'll probably try it soon only to feel horrible about my humanity shortly thereafter.

I had one of the Double Downs on Tuesday. Ordered it original recipe, figured I'd get the grilled next time. The menu price for the combo was $7.49, but I figured I'd stick with the sandwich alone. I was a little shocked when the total after tax for yonder sammich was $6. I was a little more shocked when I opened the box and it was a little smaller than I'd expect for $6.

On to the important part - the taste.

It wasn't bad. Could have used a little more bacon, maybe a little less cheese, but overall good. If it were a couple of bucks cheaper I'd probably make it a regular lunch item.

I, on the other hand, stayed away from it, and ate a bland chicken sandwich, that is no where nearly as good as the tender roast sandwich they had years ago. I ordered it without the sauce which in loaded with calories and fat, or so I've been told. Seeing as I have been losing weight, I didn't think this would be a good thing for me to eat.

If I hadn't been told I had high cholesterol, I would've been first in line for that Double Baconator.

Awesome!

My son tried the double down KFC chicken thing with cheese. He liked it! He exclaimed it was the best thing he had ever tasted. I, on the other hand, stayed away from it, and ate a bland chicken sandwich, that is no where nearly as good as the tender roast sandwich they had years ago. I ordered it without the sauce which in loaded with calories and fat, or so I've been told. Seeing as I have been losing weight, I didn't think this would be a good thing for me to eat.Young people have less-developed taste buds, which makes extreme flavors stand out to them and gives them less ability to discern subtleties and nuances. I've been trying to explain this to my niece for a few years as it comes up in conversation at the dinner table.

Then I can proudly say I've only had the original chicken sandwich from BK, on that list of worse items. I'm normally not a "double" kind of guy; tough to snake-jaw-break such large burgers and such.

Good to know that there's NOTHING bad about getting punch or lemonade instead of soda at fast food joints... :rolleyes: :whew:

Dang, there are a lot of salads that are really horrible for you out there. I am glad the only fast food salads I eat are the little $1 ones that don't have fried chicken pieces and such.I bet a lot of the bad stuff in those salads is in the dressing. I usually don't get dressing when I order a salad, unless it is already mixed in.

On Tuesday, my mom and I drove to Mount Vernon and went to the Royal Fork Buffet there. You could make your own Belgian waffles there, so we each had one of those. They were pretty good. It had been a while since I had some fresh waffles. My mom used to make some and bring them to me, but even those would be put into the freezer and wouldn't be as good as when they were fresh off the waffle iron.

I did finally try the KFC DD, but I got it with a mini bowl on the side. :D For the "sandwich?" I like Original Recipe chicken, always have. This one was okay, messy. I probably won't get another one, unless someone who hasn't tried one yet wants to do so and have another person do likewise (doubtful that such a scenario will present itself).

Full-fat salad dressing generally has 14 grams of fat per serving, and those numbers are 3x above that. And the dressing usually has around 100 to 300mg of sodium, again, 1/3rd of the numbers in those salads. The chicken bits are the constant here, and they're horrific.


I doubt I'll ever bother with the Double Down.

I got a double down the other day. Since I'm very health conscious I got the grilled one and I actually liked it a lot. To be honest though it would probably taste better if it had a bun. Nonetheless the taste is very good and since I love bacon and cheese this thing is money.

Meesa back! All that caloric content and sodium has made my insides (and outsides :o ) impervious to breaking down. Good gravy! :D So I had a 20-piece McNuggets tonight for dinner... but I may not make it to tomorrow. :eek:

"In terms of saturated fat, drinking this Cold Stone catastrophe is like slurping up 68 strips of bacon," the magazine said.

That's a good idea too...how about drinking that little guy AFTER eating 68 strips of bacon? Wash it down? :lipsrsealed:
