For a fast food lover, it doesn’t get much better than the chicken fry. The soft white chicken with the crisp, dippable shape of a French (or Belgian...) fry... But what if, in the end, it could get better?

Burger King thinks that it can. And with the launch of its new “Crispy Pretzel Chicken Fries,” it intends to test that hypothesis with a limited release mashup of a pre-existing mashup.

Available now at participating restaurants, Burger King’s pretzel chicken fries are what you get when you take a strip of white meat chicken and let it frolic and roll around in a “salty pretzel breading” mixture. Naturally, for an extra punch, the pretzel breading has been spiced up with a proprietary combination of “savory spices and herbs.”

The pretzel chicken sticks fit perfectly into a dipping cup with room to spare, so slather the sauce to your heart’s desire. Choose from the impressive range of barbecue, honey mustard, ranch, “zesty,” Buffalo and sweet & sour sauces. Of course, if you want to be an authentic connoisseur of pretzels, you have to eat them with mustard. Or in this case, honey mustard.

The pretzel chicken fry sticks have a recommended price tag of $3.09 per order, so you can dip and then go back for seconds. Now there’s a crispy thought.
