Applebees’ Cheetos Burger Bomb Exists & We’re Intrigued, If Overwhelmed

Applebee’s recently announced its latest addition to the menu: a Cheetos Burger Bomb. The new, creative burger is just in time for summer – and is definitely an extravagant creation.

The menu addition includes a cheeseburger battered and fried in Cheetos batter and rolled in Cheetos dust. It’s served on a brioche bun alongside curly fries, coleslaw, and some Cheetos aioli. The burger costs $13 USD, though it’s not being served anywhere in the United States.


The catch is that the burger will only be available in the United Arab Emirates for a limited time. Also, the burger will remain a VIP item, meaning that Cheetos fans will have to join Applebee’s email list to be able to get a bite of the crazy concoction.

So, if you’re interested in trying out this wild menu item, it’s time to plan now. UAE, here you come!
