If your first thought is, "Ew, gross," your second thought might be, "Wait, that might be awesome."

It's Cheetos Chicken Fries, and one fast food restaurant in the Treasure Valley has plans to start cranking them out today.  

Burger King is adding the new Cheetos Chicken Fries to its menu, and it's exactly what it sounds like -- chicken that's breaded in Cheetos flour and deep fried.  Today (Wednesday) is the first day you can get them, and they'll be out for a limited time.

This is a really convenient way to cram more calories into regular chicken fries, but kids who are on their way to soccer practice will burn those right off.  And it's a time-saver for those of us who are too lazy to take separate bites of Cheetos with our plain chicken fingers.

Next time you head over to the Burger King spots in Boise on South Broadway, West Fairview, or Overland Road, let us know what you think of these things. It looks like Burger King wants to be known for something besides burgers, at least for now.
