The greatest mysteries are those that remain unsolved. We all know the list — Bigfoot, the Great Pyramids of Egypt, Crop Circles, the Bermuda Triangle. We never get tired of hearing about them, talking about them, puzzling over them. Mysteries bring us together in unusual ways, which is why we couldn’t resist adding one more unsolved mystery to the list. Behold our new Airheads® White Mystery Freeze. It delivers the fun and flavor you expect from a Taco Bell freeze and Airheads® candy but with a deliciously mouth-watering twist . . . the Airheads® White Mystery flavor is TOP SECRET! Sipping this freezy, snow white treat will overwhelm you with that tingly feeling of anticipation every good mystery brings. We bet you’ll be bemused, baffled, and bewildered as you and your friends try to figure out the essential question: What flavor is it? Sure . . . we could tell you. But where’s the fun in that?

Cheetos Chicken Fries are made with white meat chicken like original Chicken Fries, and are covered in a crispy Cheetos-flavored breading and cooked to crispy perfection so that they have a dangerously cheesy outside and made with juicy white meat chicken inside.
Although I don’t usually go into trying to Burger King menu items with a lot of optimism, there’s still an underlying hope that I’ll be pleasantly surprised. I really want to come away pleased to report back that BK impressed me. I know most of you would be shocked if I laid praise on the King and I’m sorry to report there won’t be any of that today. The latest creation is just more of the same. … continue reading “Review: Cheetos Chicken Fries from Burger King”
