Funnel cake is usually reserved for the fair, but the new Checkers and Rally's Funnel Cake Fries look to make the food available in an environment outside of the summertime events. Available for a limited-time only, the fries are served like French fries and are dusted with powdered sugar to make them a perfectly sweet substitute to traditional sides or as a dessert.

Artisan foods are being incorporated more into the menu of QSR establishments as seen with the new Checkers and Rally's Funnel Cake Fries, which are something you'd usually only find at carnivals or food trucks. This acknowledges consumer preferences for nostalgic treats that are more accessible on an everyday basis for enjoyment whenever desired.
