Healthy or unhealthy… that is the question!
When you drive around the largest city in New Zealand - Auckland - How many takeaway
bars and fast-food restaurants are there? The answer would be "thousands".
At every shopping mall and every major intersection there are signs that you would easily recognize.

Our nation is dubbed as "Clean and Green" but the ever-increasing fast-food shops
and number of obese people says otherwise. There must be a connection between
fast-food consumption and obesity due to the food's unbalanced nutrition. We know
that eating 'good' food does not mean a perfectly healthy and nutritionally
balanced dish, but we often want to eat something that tastes great, regardless

Enter KFC's new product - the Double Down. Nicknamed as the "bunless burger" or
"gut filler", this unhealthy burger is available for only 5 weeks to promote
KFC's healthy food (?). Look at it; it has two fried chicken breasts, two slices
of bacon, two slices of cheese and a creamy sauce but no buns! A whopping 604
calories at a cost of NZ$7.90.

Health Authorities in every country are issuing warnings about fast food's fat-laden
content which may cause heart disease and obesity. Whatever they say, there are plenty
of people rushing in to KFCs to buy the Double Down, fuelled by tremendous media attention.
The purpose of bringing in this "gut-filler" monster is purely for advertisement - to create more awareness of KFC. It is very successful, as they sold more than 34000 bunless chicken burgers on the first day of sale on May 10, running at more than 4 times the normal operation. Even their share price rose by 4c. Well done, but KFC is standing on the fence, one side is promoting their healthy food and the other side is selling fat-laden Double Downs.
Sale ends mid June anyway.
This is the Gut-Filler Double Downs
