The reason behind the move? Burger King is bringing back Funnel Cake Fries, which were first introduced by the restaurant in, you guessed it, 2009. They will be available once again beginning on Thursday, Jan. 24. The fries will cost you $1.99 for nine pieces at participating locations.
some things from 2010 are worth revisiting—like your old tweets. and funnel cake fries. get them now for a limited time.— Burger King (@BurgerKing) January 24, 2019
