Hungry Jack’s shakes up its fries
AUSTRALIAN burger chain Hungry Jack's is serving up a new twist on its fries over summer.
The fast food outlet is joining with Arnott's to offer Arnott's Shapes Barbecue Shaker Chips exclusively to its customers.
For the next 12 weeks, Hungry Jack's fans can order their hot, golden fries with a sachet of the seasoning inspired by Arnott's popular Barbecue Shapes.
The chips and seasoning combination will be available in more than 400 Hungry Jack's restaurants across Australia from today.
Hungry Jack's Chief Marketing Officer Scott Baird said the new summer flavour "packs a punch".
"This is one of the many exciting initiatives Hungry Jack's is rolling out, following the launch of the Vegan Cheeseburger and our delivery partnership with Menulog," he said.
Customers can order the fries for $3.50, which will come with the Arnott's Shapes Barbecue-inspired seasoning sachet.
Extra sachets will come at a cost of 50 cents.
Arnott's Marketing Director Michelle Foley said it was a new opportunity they could not refuse.
"We know Aussies love eating Shapes crackers but with Hungry Jack's, we can now offer our famous Arnott's Shapes Barbecue flavour in an inspired way that's never been experienced before, and one we know our customers will love," she said.
Arnott's Shapes Barbecue Shaker Chips will also be available for those ordering via Menulog delivery and on Hungry Jack's app.
