Be sure to swing by your local Burger King to satisfy your sweet tooth. The fast-food chain is doling out something sweet, sugary and delicious to pair with its classic Whopper: funnel cake fries.
Yes, you read that correctly. For a limited time only, Burger King will be selling fried, dough-y dessert in the form of fries. So, not only can you eat funnel cake like you’re a kid at a state fair, but you can do so in a way that’s more convenient than ever before — because everyone knows food is easier to eat when it’s shaped like a french fry.
If Burger King’s funnel cake fries are giving you déjà vu, that’s because the fast-food restaurant first debuted the fries back in 2010, according to a tweet from Burger King:
some things from 2010 are worth revisiting—like your old tweets. and funnel cake fries. get them now for a limited time.

The fries are available now at participating locations, and people cannot handle their excitement over this news. Burger King and funnel cake fans alike are taking to Twitter to let the world know just how ready they are to get these fries in their faces.
