KFC releases the Double Down Hot Dog

Have you ever been eating a hot dog and thought, 'Gee, I wish I had some fried chicken to wrap this dog in?" Well, Kentucky Fried Chicken is answering your artery-clogging prayers.

The latest crazy food concoction is the Double Down Hot Dog. So what does this entail? Let me break it down: it is a hot dog wrapped in a cheese-stuffed chicken breast. According to Business Insider, the Double Down appears to be a hot dog version of the infamous "Double Down," a sandwich that uses chicken patties in place of bread.

Apparently if you want to try it, you'll have to hop on a flight to the Philippines because that's the only place it's being offered so far and there are reportedly only 50 pieces left, says one advertisement.

Sure, it's weird. But KFC is probably enjoying all of the free advertising on social media from people that can't stop talking about it.
