KFC announced it is testing out a fried chicken Cheetos sandwich

If there's one thing KFC has never been afraid of, it's challenging costumers' taste buds. 

The fried chicken company announced this week that it is testing a new type of fried chicken sandwich -- and it's not a spicy or double-fried recipe. KFC is trying out a fried chicken Cheetos sandwich. 

"Made by coating a juicy, hand-breaded Extra Crispy chicken filet with special Cheetos sauce and placing it on a toasted bun with mayo and a layer of crunchy Cheetos, the Cheetos Sandwich will give you a blast of craveable Cheetos in every bite," KFC described in its official press release.  

The new product, which is available now through March 24, unsurprisingly caused quite a stir on Twitter. Many users didn't know how to feel about the announcement while others were excited to get their hands on the new item. 

Currently, the controversial item is only available at select restaurants in North Carolina, Virginia and Georgia. It is priced at $4.79.
