Thanks so much to reader Freida for sharing this absolutely interesting video. Hard to describe - it is food made out of rocks. Nuff said. Roll with it.

First off, we were impressed with the very thorough instructions and 'careful these are hot' warnings - very nice packaging. We followed the directions exactly - pushing the crisper side of the box down into the fry pile, stuck it in the microwave and scrambled for dippin' sauces. We were not disappointed - these fries were hot and crispy and also nice and tasty. Not sure of the regular price - but at 1.00, we sent a staffer to acquire 10 more boxes for us immediately.

Upon inspection in the FPT test kitchens we found this to be very tasty as we had hoped. The multiple photos above are of the kind we sampled - original recipe choice - 4.99 on the west coast. Seemed sort of small at first, but was rather filling with the bacon and cheese in the middle. We do endorse this sandwich - it may be sort of a novelty thing, you would not want it daily, but is a nice change from the regular routines. Was nice and greasy - like fried chicken should be - notice the grease stains on the paper towel after it sat there for 60 seconds - decent!
Here is mobi media from B2 who bought his Double-Down at a KFC in Las Vegas:
We also have the follwing mobi pictures from regular contributor Chris Norton - somewhere in the SW USA. When asked for a quote, he replied "its like woodstock. it can probably only happen once".

Our main mobi man - B2 has sent along this intriguing mobile device post. Above is pictured the "Double Big-Mac" - allegedly only available in Canada.
This is all the info we have at this time, we have asked FPT staffer Franklin to get on this ASAP for more info.

Twizzlers nailed it on these - not only do these licorice twists have a pastel/neon look they also taste pastelly - neony (yes - we created those words). These do not appear to be a limited time only offering - but you nevwer know on these new unusual spin-offs. Our advice is to grab a few of these ASAP. For collectors, make sure and save one - they may indeed be a one-time batch thing.

The staff here remembers the night we tried the Low Carb Burger from Carl's Jr. & how suprised we were to find lettuce instead of buns holding it together. Now, Kentucky Fried Chicken has taken the alternative bun idea to a whole new level.
Debuting tomorrow is the Double-Down sandwich at KFC - described as "The new KFC Double Down sandwich is real and it's coming April 12th! This one-of-a-kind sandwich features two thick and juicy boneless white meat chicken filets (Original Recipe® or Grilled), two pieces of bacon, two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and Colonel's Sauce. This product is so meaty, there’s no room for a bun!".
Are we gonna try this off the hook offering from the Colonel? Absolutely!

At first glance, this coupon appears to be a straightforward deal - buy a Ceasefire Pepsi & get a free bag of any degree of the Burn Doritos. However, if you read the fine print - this coupon is good for any bag (single serving size) of Doritos.
The staff here is curious if you are seeing what we see here - no Doritos Burn chips anywhere - but stacks of Pepsi Cease Fire? Please use the comment link below - no registration needed, you can post anonymously if you like.

This sampling was done very late at night, on the backside of a day long food eating bender. After trying to recall eating them and looking at the photos, we humbly admit that while we do actually remember eating these - thats all we can verify.
The wrapper is here and the Oreo Cakesters are gone. Based on prior food bender experiences (ie. binging) we can say with confidence, if these were not really good, then we would remember so.
