For a limited time, and by popular demand, Burger King has put Chicken Fries back on the menu, for the first time since they were removed in 2012. There’s no word from Burger King how long they’ll stay on the menu this time, other than the strange phrase on their press release, “while supplies last”. Supplies of chicken, or supplies of customers?
Burger King is recommending that franchise restaurants price an order of nine pieces at $2.89, but prices may vary by location.
Also for a limited time, Burger King is selling Chicken Fries gear, including commemorative t-shirts, mugs, bumper stickers, pins, temporary tattoos and more, with all profits donated to the BURGER KING McLAMORE Foundation. The gear is for sale on eBay.
Burger King says Chicken Fries are made with premium white meat chicken coated in a light crispy breading seasoned with savory spices and herbs. Shaped like fries, Chicken Fries come with dipping sauces including BBQ, Honey Mustard, Ranch, Zesty, Buffalo and Sweet & Sour.
Don’t overdo it, even for a limited time, because Burger King Chicken Fries are loaded with fat and sodium. fried food is fried food. According to health and fitness site Fitbit, nine pieces of Burger King Chicken Fries have an astounding 35% fat and 41% percent sodium (daily allowance, based on a 2,000 calorie daily diet).
