KFC Glazed Donut Fried Chicken Sandwich Seems Like a Lethal Weapon

KFC has introduced a glazed donut fried chicken sandwich. It has an extra crispy chicken breast and two glazed donuts. This is about 910 calories.

This has been offered at smaller restaurants but KFC is the first major fast-food chain to offer this.

This is for people who are actively against any remotely healthy food.

  1. I am only very slightly overweight. But I feel fat people should not be shamed. They have their own problems there is no point adding to them. Even if you are an Adonis, you are not perfect.

  2. …both organizations should reconsider their recommendations because it’s not reasonable to expect people to maintain those levels of intake over the long term…

    I don’t find this line reasonable at all.

    As someone who dine out ~99% of the time, i have no clue what is my sodium intake level on a daily basis. I may have little control, but I haven’t picked up a salt shaker or sugar packet since I left college and I feel fine. I’m probably still over the recommended limit like most people.

    Even though I’ll never get there, I’ll stick with the current low end recommendations as being the optimal goal until better evidence turns up.

  3. Look, one of my majors in college was human biology, and I’ve followed the literature ever since. Dietary recommendations are almost always rather poorly justified once you get past minimum requirements for various nutrients. They tend to be very context dependent; Does the subject have high blood pressure or kidney disease? Does the subject live in a hot climate and sweat a lot?

    The under 2300mg recommendation is rather dodgy. They’ve linearized a relationship that seems to be non-linear. A better recommendation would be, “Under 5000mg per day, and make sure you get enough potassium.”


  4. the dose makes the poison

    One shouldn’t just assume they will be just like that one guy you hear
    about that smoked 10packs and drank a liter of scotch everyday and lived to be 122. Most Americans aren’t competitive athletes, most don’t live under the tails of the curve. Everyone should avoid salt where they can, it’s a very difficult thing to avoid given a modern food supply, even if you were so inclined. The recommended intake is under 2300mg, the over 3400mg(avg) American consumes isn’t likely to be a good thing long term, especially if they also subscribe the typical anti-intellectual populist worldview. Replacing empiricism with belief as the main driver of decision making isn’t usually immediately detrimental, but living in a modern society built on empiricism wont be able to compensate forever.

    I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I’ll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be.

  5. In his 1870 book Personal Beauty: How to Cultivate and Preserve it in Accordance with the Laws of Health, author Daniel Brinton states that a “scrawny bony figure” is “intolerable to gods and men.” According to Brinton, the only occasion on which excessive leanness had ever been beneficial to a lady was in an encounter with a cannibal.

  6. Yep, the commenting demographic here seems to be slanted towards the Gen-X and Boomers, with a few Millenials here and there. So most people here ought to be already paired/married.

    Apparently the belief in a better future, optimism and trust in rationality, and in mankind’s power to transform the world for the better, are no longer fashionable among the young.

    If the site was called “The Next Big Collapse” or some such, it would probably be more popular among the youngsters.

  7. Fat people exist and should be shamed, not celebrated. Getting rid of the obese is essentially the same as reducing human resource use at a 2 to 1 ratio. Each obese person takes up double the resources as a healthy weight individual.

    Lets hear it for diabetes!

  8. Also, didn’t say which wife. I think the average in a developed nation is around two for anyone who has ever been married at least once. For the current US President its three.

  9. Conspiracy theory alfoil hat on:

    Given that many people still claim that populations are too high. And a different (though probably intersecting group) are concerned that there is no longer any eugenic selection of the fittest.

    So… there would be a group who would quite like there to be some sort of cull, something that chose for desirable traits such as hard work and self control.

    Then, mysteriously, a publicity campaign appears that encourages those who are inclined towards gluttony and laziness to indulge themselves into celibacy and heart attacks.

    alfoil hat off

    … and my avatar appears to be a muffin.

  10. And this is why we are suddenly having to glorify overweight models and entertainers. All of which are essentially a diabetes promotion. You cannot unsee that.

  11. That’s it exactly: Some percentage of the population have kidney problems, for example, and have to closely regulate their electrolyte balance. And what do they conclude? Everybody should avoid salt!

    As long as it’s got everything you need, and not anything outright toxic, it’s just a matter of burning off the calories. Surely if the Amish have taught us anything, it’s that.

  12. Barring some genetic bad luck, it’s generally possible for anyone to train around a bad diet and reach a state of general wellness. You see all of these studies with malformed hypotheses take small groups of people and find that bad diets still impact their health but they make selective assumptions about what constitutes exercise, which don’t scale or extrapolate. You can eat 2 of these a day if you also run hills every morning and weight lift every night and barring some stupid genetic bad draw, you’ll outlive the average life expectancy if the rest of your life is somewhere in the schmedium of good decisions.

  13. I find this thing unappealing and won’t buy it myself, but this being other people’s money and bodies, what do I care?

  14. Went on a cruise recently. Seemed to me that over half the passengers on a 3000 pax boat were so heavy it was a wonder they could walk from one end of the ship to the casino in the middle.

    They kept the elevators busy but I had the stairs all to myself.

    I suspect most of them wouldn’t hesitate to binge on these, given the opportunity.

  15. Let’s not be absurd here. You’re looking at a bit under 1000 calories, about half of which are from starch and sugar. Lousy glycemic index, sure, but actually not as bad as binging on instant ramen.

    You could eat that sucker every day, if you spend a hard hour in the gym shortly afterwards, and be no worse for it. In fact, it would probably be a pretty good pre-workout meal.

    Mind, I wouldn’t go anywhere near it, but I don’t spend that hard hour in the gym, either, and that’s the real problem.

  16. Looks delicious. I’m cutting right now though, so I could eat one of these babies a day, and then find another 300 kcal to finish off my daily calorie load. Also, as another person mentioned below, the macro and micro nutrients are probably a tad unbalanced, so ultimately a once a week or less treat. But I get fast food way, way less than that cause cost, so…

  17. I love how all these future diabetic heart attack victims are attacking you Brian. As they type with their fat little fingers since you are claiming the king has no clothes

  18. The problem are not calories “per se”.

    • How much proteins?
    • How much fat?
    • How much carbs?

    And you should take into account:

    • How much sodium?
    • How much sugar?
    • How much trans fat?

    If your daily calory ingest is normal, you can insert this food with no problem.
    And if you perform sports in a regular basis, you can eat almost anything you want…
