Applebee's Just Dropped 2 Spicy Cheetos Menu Items

If you've ever been to Applebee's and thought to yourself, "These wings are good, but they would be even better if they were combined with my favorite cheesy snack," then you're about to be in for the treat of your life. To the delight of snack fans everywhere, the chain has just announced it will be launching a new, limited-time Cheetos-inspired menu. This creative, cheesy new menu will feature classic Applebee's favorites with a Cheetos twist. 

Cheetos Boneless Wings will feature the chain's fan-favorite crispy breaded boneless wings flavored with original Cheetos Wing Sauce or Cheetos Flamin' Hot Wing Sauce and rolled in pieces of Cheeto crumbles for an extra flavorful crunch. And if wings aren't your thing, you can enjoy a meatless version with the new savory Cheetos Cheese Bites, which includes the same tasty Cheeto crumbles and your choice of either the Cheetos Original sauce or Cheetos Flamin' Hot sauce, tossed with savory fried cheese bites, according to Chew Boom. These cheesy new releases were inspired by Cosmic Wings, an online, delivery-only restaurant that opened in Applebee's locations in February 2021. Per Thrillist, the business has been bringing Cheeto versions of classic menu items to almost 1,300 Applebee's locations nationwide via Uber Eats delivery.

Both of the Cheeto-inspired treats mentioned above can be enjoyed dining in at participating Applebee's locations nationwide for a suggested retail price of just $9.99 per order for a limited time.

Applebee's is also launching an innovative new Shirtkin

If you are worried about the dry cleaning bills that might come as a result of wiping Cheeto-dust stains on your favorite going-out shirt, never fear: Applebee's has just released the new Shirtkin. Its napkin-like fabric offers fans a convenient way to wipe their dusty, saucy hands without ever needing to take a break from enjoying the new Cheetos-inspired menu. Notably, fans who actively engage and like Applebee's social media content can DM the brand online to be eligible to win a surprise Shirtkin of their very own.

"The unique pairing of Cheetos with fan-favorites like wings and cheese bites is a match made in cheesy heaven, and we can't wait for all of our guests to have a bite. With wings being one of our most popular meals among guests, we know this exclusive menu sprinkled in Cheetos dust will be a huge hit," Joel Yashinsky, chief marketing officer at Applebee's, said of the new items (via Business Wire).
