Burger King's New Item Involves Cheetos Breading
Yum?   (Burger King)

Love mac n' cheese? Love Cheetos? Burger King hopes you'll love Mac n' Cheetos. The new 310-calorie snack is basically mozzarella sticks but stuffed with macaroni along with the cheese and cased in Cheetos-flavored breading, per Time. So far, reviews are mixed. One Twitter user says it's the "best thing BK has come up with yet," while another calls it a "fast food abomination." The Verge sums it up as "coagulated orange clumps of processed cheese." The $2.49 pack of five bites will be available at select locations for a maximum of eight weeks, but a Burger King rep tells Bloomberg more snack-inspired menu items are coming.
