BURGER KING and the CHEETOS Brand Introduce Flamin’ Hot Mac n’ Cheetos
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,” said 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™,” said 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.
