Every year, fast food companies push the limits of what human beings will willingly eat, but Burger King’s new “Mac ‘n’ Cheetos” snack might put humanity’s appetite for junk food to the ultimate test.
Via Bloomberg, Burger King really is testing out a new snack that is essentially a macaroni-filled deep-fried cheese stick that is coated in Frito Lay’s trademark radioactive-orange Cheetos dust.
For just $2.49, you can get a five-pack of Mac ‘n’ Cheetos at select Burger King locations over the next eight weeks or until supplies run out. Bloomberg says that eating five of the Trump-colored cheese sticks will pack on 310 calories, which sounds surprisingly low given how you’re eating deep-fried synthetic dairy goo.
But hey, we’ve learned to not knock something until you’ve tried it — and honestly, the Mac ‘n’ Cheetos do look marginally more appetizing than the terrifying bright-red Whopper Burger King released earlier this year.
