Chicken Fries: Burger King Brings Them Back After Outcry

By    |   Monday, 11 Aug 2014 08:19 PM

Burger King announced Monday that chicken fries — pieces of chicken shaped like fries and served nine to a carton for $2.89 — are back on the market, and many people online were happy to hear it.

Ridiculously happy. In fact, it was the online community begging for chicken fries that convinced Burger King to give them another shot, USA Today said.

The fast-food restaurant quit selling chicken fries a couple of years ago because they weren’t selling well. But the demand on social media for the snack was so intense the company began to wonder if maybe they should have left chicken fries on the menu a little longer.

"Demand for this product is so fanatical that we asked ourselves: Who are we to get in the way of our guests having Chicken Fries?" Eric Hirschhorn, Burger King chief marketing officer for North America, told USA Today.

Hirschhorn said Burger King at one time got a tweet every 40 seconds from someone wanting chicken fries. There were even several Change.org petitions demanding the company start selling the fries again.

For some, the return of the chicken fries came just in time to serve as a comfort food.
