Double Down with Colonel costumes and other Fast Food pitchmen!

This past Monday, fast food giant KFC released a new sandwich that has gotten some serious media play. SNL lampooned it and very few fast food sandwiches have received as much media coverage as the KFC “Double Down.” What’s so special about it? For one, it’s breadless. Just delicious, salty bacon with two slices of Pepper Jack and Swiss cheeses, the Colonel’s sauce (a spicy mayo) sandwiched between two, deep fried chicken filets breaded with KFC’s patented 11 herbs and spices. Is it delicious? You bet your ever-widening patootie it is!! It’s also packed with 540 calories, 32 grams of fat, just ONE gram of fiber, and 1,380 milligrams of sodium. (And for the record, I dipped my sandwich in a pool of KFC mashed potatoes and gravy.) Hey, everything in moderation! As long as you don’t make it a way of everyday life, it’s not like the overwhelming deliciosity of the sandwich will kill you! Eat up!

In honor of this landmark moment in fast food history, check out CZ’s DIY tutorial on “How to Make a Col. Sander/KFC Costume” and snap up a Col. Sanders white goatee to give your costume some bite!

Maybe you’re not a fried chicken afficionado and your loyalties lie with some other fast food and their pitchmen. Show some love to Mickey D’s with a Ronald McDonald costume to delight the kiddies, or costumes of any of his McDonald Land friends like Grimmace, Birdie, or the Hamburglar!

Or, dress up as the Burger King, arguably one of the funniest and most likeable fast food mascots around. What’s not to like? He goes crazy, peeps in people’s windows, and has a big smile on his equally large head while he’s doing it! Officially licensed Burger King costumes and medallions are waiting for you to “have it your way.”
