KFC is bringing back the Double Down, a bacon and cheese sandwich that uses two fried chicken filets as a bun. But like a spring chicken, it won't be around for long.

"Yes, it's true! What is arguably the most talked-about product in KFC history is coming back, but only for a limited time," said KFC spokesman Rick Maynard, in an email to CNNMoney.

He said the Double Down will be on the menu nationwide from April 21 to May 25.

The news comes just days after KFC unveiled a chicken corsage for prom season. The corsage features a wristlet of flowers that comes with a gift card that the recipient can use to buy chicken at KFC.

The unique Double Down sandwich was a big hit when it was first unveiled back in 2010.

"It includes bacon, Monterey Jack cheese and Colonel's sauce sandwiched between two 100% white meat Original Recipe filets," said Maynard.
