The fast food giant has crowned itself King of Menu Items No One Asked For, debuting a Whopper burrito and an “extra-long” cheeseburger earlier this year. But just when you think it’s safe, when you comfort yourself with the knowledge that it couldn’t possibly get any worse, Burger King strikes again.
On Monday Burger King announced the new “Cheetos Chicken Fries,” a cheesy twist on the company’s beloved Chicken Fries that follows in the footsteps of its Cheetos-dusted predecessor, the infamous Mac N’ Cheetos. It’s a logical next step in Burger King’s apparent plan to turn all food neon orange.
“The chicken fries are cooked to crispy perfection so that they have a dangerously cheesy outside and made with juicy white-meat chicken inside,” Burger King said in a statement to Business Insider.
Cheetos Chicken Fries will be available in stores starting Wednesday for a limited time only. Nine strips of cheesy chicken will run you roughly $2.89.
At this point, it’s become abundantly clear that Burger King is trying to punish humanity for something. Think back on every time you didn’t hold the elevator door for someone, ate your roommate’s leftovers or stole a parking space. Now gaze upon Burger King’s judgement of your crimes.
