Burger King recently announced the debut of Cheetos Chicken Fries at participating restaurants this September. While Burger King has previously tested the limits of fast food with hybrid dishes such as the Whopperrito and Mac n' Cheetos, now it it appears that the chain has created another outrageous new snack.

The Cheetos Chicken Fries are a new twist on the chain's existing Chicken Fries, which are pieces of chicken breast that have been sliced into rectangular shapes and then rolled in seasoning. The newest version of the dish is seasoned with the same bright orange cheese dust used to make Cheetos. To cement the partnership, the co-branded side dish is also served in a orange box with the face of the iconic Cheetos mascot.

The new chicken fries flavor demonstrates that fast food brands have not run out of ways to reinvent their most popular dishes.
