Do you love mac n’ cheese? Are you addicted to Flamin’ Hot Cheetos? (No, like, actually. Those things have been banned in some public schools). Well, today is your lucky day because Burger King is giving you both. At. The. Same. Time.

Oh, hello, Flamin’ Hot Mac n’ Cheetos. Very cheesed to meet ya, with your puffy Cheetos shape, your nuclear-red color and your squishy mac n’ cheese interior.

Though the snacks had already been spotted at a handful Burger Kings, the fast food company confirmed today in a press release that it would be indeed launching these spicily bite-sized mac n’ cheese puffs at select locations in the US beginning November 30th. The redder-than-red hunks will be around while supplies last.

The appearance of this menu item marks the return of the internet-successful Mac n’ Cheetos, which gimmicked their way around the web in 2016. This time, the Cheetos have gone atomic, with wildly popular Flamin’ Hot Cheetos flavor for a shell.

“Our fans had such a great reaction to Mac n’ Cheetos that we’re excited to bring a new version,” said Rich Blazevich, Frito-Lay North America’s senior director of marketing. “We look forward to hearing the responses from fans who’ve dared to try this new item!”

“Dared” is right. Just a heads up, if your number two comes out looking a little rouge, no biggie—you probably don’t need to go to the hospital. Feast on, friends.
