It’s been a while since my last Weird Food Purchase of the Day video installment so, today, I rectify that in grand style with a little something I like to call The Triple Down.
“What?”you may ask, “is a Triple Down?”
Well, I’m glad you asked –
So, how was it?
It was a little dry and could have used more of the Colonel’s secret sauce. That or another dollop of mayo. It was also extremely salty. Paul likened it to eating a fistful of McDonalds french fries. On the positive side, the chicken married quite nicely with the doughnut. The cheese did not – but that won’t stop me from trying one of those Krispy Kreme cheeseburger sliders one day.
As I chowed down, I couldn’t help but think: “You know who would’ve enjoyed this? Rob Cooper and Martin Gero.” Not the sandwich itself, but the sight of me eating it. It made wistful. Then, slightly nauseous.
So, the verdict = Sweet, very salty, a tad try, and somewhat dizzy for about twenty minutes after consumption.
Paul suggested we try and top it next week by deep-frying the whole in a taco shell. Top with ice cream and voila! The Quadruple Down! And, quite possibly, quadruple bypass.
Anyway, thanks to everyone who helped to make Triple Down Friday happen. Ken for driving all the way to Delta to pick up the doughnuts. Ashleigh for going to KFC and waiting in line for the Double Downs. And, of course, everyone who was on hand to lend their support in this most noble of endeavors.
Also of note – last Friday marked Remi’s last day on the show and today it was Linda’s turn. She swung by my office this morning to say her goodbyes and give me this parting gift –
Many thanks to both Remi and Linda for their contributions to SGU’s second season. The next month won’t be the same without you. You may have gained a friend in me, but I have gained much, much more. Not one but TWO places to stay the next time I’m in L.A.!
