Burger King Is Testing 2 New Wild Fries to Join Its Unique Chicken Fries

The home of the Whopper is testing out two wild new additions to its lineup of fries and they're unlike anything the chain has ever served before. Burger King announced that it is launching a test run of a new snack-based menu to be called "Fries, Your Way." The new fries will be tested at Burger King locations in Columbus Ohio between February 13 and mid-May of this year.

The "Fries, Your Way" menu will consist of Burger King's already popular classic Chicken Fries along with two new additions: Churro Fries and Mozzarella Fries. The Churro Fries are thin strips of fried pastry dough tossed in cinnamon sugar and sound similar to the funnel cake fries that KFC tested last year. The Mozzarella Fries are breaded, fry-shaped mozzarella sticks served with marinara sauce. All three fry options will be offered in four-, eight-, and 10-piece sizes.

The idea here, according to a Burger King rep, is to offer more menu items that are snacks as opposed to actual meals, as Burger King sees snacking as a growing category that fans are looking for as opposed to full meals with burgers, fries, and a drink.

Last year, Burger King announced a $400 million plan to upgrade its image called the "Reclaim the Flame" campaign. Part of the campaign was to bring back the vintage slogan "Have It Your Way." The new fries that can be a snack, part of a meal, or dessert seem to fit into this category.

Reaction to the upcoming new fries has been mostly positive online, although some internet critics called out the premise of these really being "new" items at all. For example, one Reddit user posted a comment in the r/fastfood Subreddit that said: "Aren't churro fries just normal churros?" which immediately drew a reply in the same vein reading: "Also the mozzarella fries are just the normal mozzarella sticks they already have."

Granted, the new Mozzarella Fries will be a different shape than the Mozzarella Sticks already on the menu, but the commenters do have a point: this "new" menu is, in many ways, a repackaging of extant options. (Churros are new to BK, for the record.)

On the more positive side of consumer reactions, another Redditor simply said: "A lot of flavorful huge fries! Yum!"

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That! "Anything that's substantially less [than the 7.4% increase] is a deal," said Lempert. "When you

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
