UPDATE, Nov. 29: The Flamin' Hot Mac N' Cheetos will officially release November 30, according to Burger King. Only available for a limited time, they can be found at all participating Burger King restaurants.
Burger King is not afraid to push the boundaries of its menu, as it often proves with Lucky Charm shakes, Farmhouse Burgers, and of course its famed Mac n' Cheetos that released in 2016.
Now it looks like BK might bring back its Mac n' Cheetos, this time in Flamin' Hot form. They've recently been spotted in different Burger King locations, and we even found some at our local Santa Ana, California BK location.
At $2.99 for a pack of five, the Flamin' Hot Mac n' Cheetos were similar to its predecessor, as they had a mozzarella cheese stick feel to them. The inside was filled with mac n' cheese, and of course, the fried snacks are rolled in Flamin' Hot Cheeto dust.
As we tried them in the office, we honestly weren't big fans of the hot new menu item. Our own Constantine Spyrou described them as tasting like, "vegan macaroni and cheese." Not a knock on vegans, but anyone who has tried the mac, knows its reputation of being a bit dry and stale.
It's possible we got a bad batch, but we felt it definitely wasn't the King's best achievement.
The sign on the door said they'll only be around for a limited time, so we have to believe an official drop, possibly for the holidays, should be coming soon. We'll keep you updated if we hear anything further.
