January 27, 2016
Jalapeño Chicken Fries, Dr Pepper® Shake and OREO® Irish Mint Shake Debut on BK® Menu
MIAMI – January 27, 2016 – BURGER KING® restaurants are introducing new Jalapeño Chicken Fries, a spicy twist on original Chicken Fries, for a limited time. Jalapeño Chicken Fries are made with white meat chicken and breaded with a jalapeño seasoning, cooked to crispy perfection.
BURGER KING® restaurants are also introducing two new shakes to their line up- the Dr Pepper® Shake and the OREO® Irish Mint Shake. The Dr Pepper® Shake is a rich and creamy treat, hand spun with the one of a kind flavor of Dr Pepper®. The new OREO® Irish Mint Shake is a spin on the Classic OREO® Shake already offered at BK® restaurants but with a minty flavor, hand spun to perfection with OREO® cookie crumbles.
"Our guests can’t get enough of our spicy menu items not to mention our Chicken Fries so we’re giving them more of both with this new addition to our Chicken Fries lineup," said Alex Macedo, President, North America, for the BURGER KING® brand. "And if our Jalapeño Chicken Fries get a little too hot, our Dr Pepper Shake® or OREO® Irish Mint Shake is the perfect way to cool off."
Jalapeño Chicken Fries are available at participating BURGER KING® restaurants nationwide for a limited time only, at a recommended unit price of $2.89 that includes nine pieces per order. They’re perfect to dip in specialty Chicken Fries Sauce or any additional BK® dipping sauces that include Ranch, BBQ, Honey Mustard, Zesty and Sweet & Sour.
The Dr Pepper® Shake and OREO® Irish Mint Shake are also available at participating restaurants, for a limited time, at a recommended unit price of $2.69 each.
Original Chicken Fries continue to remain a permanent menu item. For additional information, visit www.bk.com.
