"Ketchup And Fries" Flavored Burger King Potato Chips?

Some press releases we wish were actually jokes. This is one of them. Burger King has announced that it will be launching a line of snack foods that will include, among other things, potato chips flavored like “Ketchup and Fries.”

Would you eat “Ketchup and Fries” flavored BK potato chips? The chips will be available in stores and at BK. From their press release:

Burger King Corp. will also test market a 100 calorie bag in BURGER KING

restaurants. “The 100 calorie bag will serve as a HAVE IT YOUR WAY

option that goes particularly well with existing menu offerings like the TENDERGRILL

Chicken Sandwich,” Klein explained, “as well as with products under development, like BK HOLD’EMS


Klein added: “The snacks are trans fat free, and the 100 calorie bag may provide our guests with portion control options as part of their overall eating strategies.”

We don’t know about you, but we love the phrase “overall eating strategies” more than we can say.

UPDATE: Apparently ketchup flavored chips are popular in Canada and are very good. Who knew? Not us.
