Burger King restaurants and the Cheetos brand are introducing the next big portable snack mashup, new Flamin’ Hot Mac n’ Cheetos. The snack is a combination of creamy mac n’ cheese coated with the flavor of crunchy Flamin’ Hot Cheetos cheese snacks. The spicy twist on classic mac n’ cheese is being offered November 30 for a limited time at participating Burger King restaurants.
The launch follows the success of Mac n’ Cheetos, which were introduced as a limited time only menu item in June 2016. This cheesy treat is perfect as an on-the-go snack and pairs well with any Burger King restaurants menu item.
“We know our guests loved our creamy Mac n’ Cheetos and we heard their requests for a Flamin’ Hot version,” says Alex Macedo, president, North America, for the Burger King brand. “We accepted the dare to reinvent this favorite limited time only menu item now covered with that crispy, spicy Flamin’ Hot Cheetos flavor we can’t get enough of.”
“Our fans had such a great reaction to Mac n’ Cheetos that we’re excited to bring a new version with Flamin’ Hot Mac n’ Cheetos,” says Rich Blazevich, senior director of marketing at Frito-Lay North America. “We look forward to hearing the responses from fans who’ve dared to try this new item.”
Flamin’ Hot Mac n’ Cheetos come in an order of five pieces at the recommended price of $2.69 and will be available for a limited time at participating Burger King restaurants.
