Fast food restaurants constantly need to think up ridiculous new items for their menu in order to go viral and drive business. But Burger King may have thought up the most ridiculous one yet.

Burger King announced they're launching a limited time item called Crispy Pretzel Chicken Fries. It's basically chicken that's been fried in the shape of french fries, and then coated with a salty pretzel coating. The original Chicken Fries debuted in 2014 as a limited-time item as well, but were put on the permanent menu after fans demanded it. So perhaps the Crispy Pretzel Chicken Fries will have the same fate.

This isn't the first time Burger King's attempted to put a twist on their Chicken Fries. In 2016, the fast food chain introduced Cheetos Chicken Fries, which were (obviously) Chicken Fries with Cheetos flavoring on the outside.

Using limited-time menu options is an easy way for fast food chains to draw in customers. People read about some weird fast food item, like Crispy Pretzel Chicken Fries, and decide to go to see how good or horrifying these culinary monstrosities are.

Not going to lie though, these do actually sound somewhat good.
