How Can KFC Top the Double Down? Not the Skinwich
|The Colonel wants to skin you.|
(The result, Gut Check discovered, was more impressive in theory than in practice.)
How could KFC top this? My colleague Annie Zaleski passed along an item from a blog called Brain Residue. It seems in very select markets KFC is testing an item called...wait for it...the Skinwich.
I won't lie. The KFC association, not withstanding, I was tempted by this sandwich and hoped that it was true: fried chicken skin with bacon and American cheese. Crisp, hot chicken skin is a sublime pleasure, and as a fan of tacos stuffed with chicharrones, I'm in no place to judge the Skinwich.
Sadly, though, mere seconds after I posted the original version of this, a colleague informed me our sister paper the Village Voice had reported that the Skinwich is a hoax.
