If there’s anything we learned about Burger King today, it’s that the fast food restaurant is killing the cheesy bites game with its new Cheese Bites. Though only available at select locations in Texas, according to YouTube food reviewer Full Nelson Eats, the new cheese bites are already getting rave reviews.
On April 12, Aaron Sanchez, also known as Full Nelson Eats on YouTube, posted a review of the cheesy bites, which basically look like half portions of mozzarella sticks, but are stuffed with what looks like double the gooey cheese. Sanchez seemed to like them, too, considering he said “mmm!” umpteen times. “Great amount of cheese! It’s not, like, all breading,” he said, adding that the cheese isn’t mozzarella; it’s a “cheddar-Jack blend.”
“This is actually pretty good quality cheese,” he emphasizes in the video. “He it tastes very similar to those Wisconsin cheese curds that you can get at Twin Peaks or similar restaurants.”
Burger King’s Cheese Bites have a crispy, deep-fried breaded coating with a dense, cheesy core. And with a name like “Cheese Bites,” that’s all we could ever ask for, right?
The Cheese Bites are priced at $1.99 for an eight-piece and $3.99 for a 20-piece order — which is pretty excessive, but you can always share.

No further details have been released about these new cheesy bites, but in the meantime, there’s always Burger King’s still-killer $5 coffee subscription promotion, where customers spend just $5 each month to get a hot cup of coffee every single day of the week. Or, you can get your hands on one of Burger King’s newest menu additions: its vegan Whopper. Added to the menu earlier this month, the vegan Whopper has a plant-based patty from Impossible Foods, which notably produces the ever-popular Impossible Burger.
