Burger King is king of combining two fatty foods everyone loves into one fatty food that everyone loses their shit for. And today, that new fatty food is Buffalo Chicken Fries, their easy-to-dip, crispy chicken strips that look just like thick fries, covered in a buffalo seasoned breading. Somewhere, a cholesterol-clogged heart just skipped a beat.
The new product comes as a spin off the much-loved, normal Burger King Chicken Fries that generally cause riots. The Chief Marketing Officer for the Burger King Brand in North America told Business Wire that these tender goodies, "Set your fingers free from mess while allowing for better dipping and easier handling." Gotta love technological advances. With that "easy handling," you can power through all the available dipping sauces: Ranch, BBQ, Honey Mustard, Zesty, Sweet & Sour, and the specialty Chicken Fries Sauce. Sounds like weekend plans.
The fries are only available for a limited time at participating Burger Kings, but no word on how "limited" that time is yet. The reported price is around $2.89 for nine pieces, so check the seat cushions for change, and then run, taking ample breaks to catch your breath, to the nearest Burger King.
