    No wonder there's such a push for improving health care in America. Look what's coming down the pike:

    You apparently get 1,700 calories for $6.99. That puts even the Famous Bowls to shame.

    The idea of this guy's "special sauce" makes me queasy.

    And I'm impressed with this overall. 1,700 calories? Managing to recreate Special Sauce into an even creepier term? Kudos, kudos to you, KFC. So much for your healthier grilled efforts, we all know where your heart is.

    It makes me sick just to look at it.

    Of course, I've got a full stomach now. Maybe if I were hungrier. And could win a hefty cash prize for eating it, a la Fear Factor.

    It's something I would eat once and then never again. I couldn't tell you the last time I went to a KFC, and $6.99 for a sandwich is insane, but that will do well, especially down south.

    The stackers at BK sell incredibly well and I doubt they're much worse for you than KFC's latest offering.

    In fairness, I believe it's $6.99 for a combo. The potato wedges and drink might push the calorie count past 2,000.

    Fuck that shit, I'll eat it once. And then I'll wait patiently for Hardee's and Bojangles to return fire.
