By popular demand, I dragged my bad self down to the international house of underwhelming, Burger King, to try out the new monstrosity they've concocted for all of us to enjoy. Introducing the new Flamin' Hot Mac n Cheetos. In my opinion, it's bad enough that chip brands have been dragged into this cholesterol fueled bastardization of American consumerism (besides you, Fritos in my Taco Bell burrito. You can stay), but to then sully the Mac n Cheese name should be a crime. But, like everything else, I do it for you, so here we go.
I still don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but it looks exactly like it does in all the commercial. Aside from looking like a piece of Clifford's shit, it's completely inoffensive. Upon breaking in half, I was expecting an orange congealed mess, but there was a clear separation of church and state with the Mac and the "Flamin'" powder. I'm impressed Burger King, but my opinion could not have been lower up to this point.
Eye Score: 6/10
To my astonishment... not horrible? Look, by no means are these good. But bad? If I'm anything, I'm honest, and while I would probably never order them again, but I can honestly say that they weren't terrible. They had good heat, which is usually a rarity when these places advertise things as "hot", and the cheese inside tasted like actual cheese. The crust-area was a little overdone for my liking, but the only real problem I had that was worth writing home about was the filling. It had a weird spongey, almost play-dohey texture that was interesting to chew on, I guess thats so they can deep fry it without making a giant mac n' cheese mess in the kitchen. I would probably suggest to just not make it at all. You're the King of Burgers; stay in your lane.
Mouth Score: 5/10
You only get three... uh... things per order, so there isn't a very big margin for any bad agita. It did however make a reappearance on the toilet a couple hours later to spice things up a bit. If you still live in the Bronze Age and roll exclusively with toilet paper, then I would not recommend.
