Carpe Diem, Y’all…

It’s Hump Day– time for a little treat to help one across to the shore of the weekend.  How about…

Deep-Fried Coke
The frozen Coca-Cola-flavored batter is deep-fried and topped with Coca-Cola syrup, whipped cream, cinnamon sugar, and a cherry.  Estimated to have 830 calories and 28 grams of fat per cup.

The KFC Double Down
This “diet special” (no bread) features two boneless fried chicken fillets as the “bun,” with two pieces of bacon, two slices each of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese, and the Colonel’s Sauce as filling.  Estimated to have 540 calories and 32 grams of fat (Rolling out through KFC franchises in the U.S. starting last Monday.)
