KFC, what have you done?

KFC is testing a Cheetos-filled sandwich—with a special Cheetos sauce—and, well, I’m conflicted. This news has sent me into a something of a downward spiral.

My first thought was “Wow. This looks amazing. Would definitely eat.”

The next was “OH MY GOD, am I a garbage person?!”

This news is inspiring me to do some serious self-reflection and it’s a little inconvenient—I have a job to do, after all. But here I am, at noon on a Wednesday, looking back over my 23 years on Earth and trying to figure out what exactly went wrong.

Anyway, here’s the info you came for:

KFC is testing a hand-breaded chicken sandwich with a layer of crunchy Cheetos and topped with mayo and a “special Cheetos sauce.” It’s called, simply, the Cheetos Sandwich.

“Both KFC and Cheetos have dedicated fanbases loyal to each new creation, so it only made sense for us to merge these two iconic brands together to provide an irresistible and flavorful sandwich that gives the best of both worlds,” says KFC in a statement. “We took our signature Crispy Colonel Sandwich, introduced in April of last year, and completely Cheeto-fied it for an extra crunch and a double punch of flavor.”

The fried chicken chain is testing the sandwich for a limited time in select restaurants in the Greensboro, North Carolina; Raleigh, North Carolina; Roanoke, Virginia; Richmond, Virginia; and Greenville, Georgia areas.
