Just when you thought you'd recovered from the mix of excitement, horror, and hunger that hit you when Burger King first unleashed Cheetos-dusted fried macaroni and cheese sticks last summer, it looks like you may want to brace yourself for all the deep-fried, cheesy insanity again. The bizarre snack food triple-threat is coming back -- by popular demand.
On Thursday, Burger King announced the menu item, Mac n' Cheetos, is returning to participating locations across the country on Thursday, May 18, for a limited time. The crowned burger chain describes the junk food hybrid as "portable" mac and cheese that's coated with a "dangerously cheesy" layer of alarmingly orange Cheetos dust and deep fried into noodle-shaped mozzarella stick-like pieces. A single five-pack of 'em makes regular mac and cheese look like a damn kale salad by comparison.
