Carl's Jr. is testing Bisnuts, a new biscuit/doughnut hybrid

It's a biscuit. It's a doughnut. Wait, it's a Carl's Jr. Bisnut!

Carl's Jr. is on a mission to create the next big culinary hybrid with the Bisnut. It's a mix of the fast-food chain's signature biscuit and a doughnut.

The Bisnuts come topped with either white or chocolate icing and sprinkles. 

Carl's Jr. is testing the Bisnuts at a few locations in Huntington Beach, a spokesperson for the company confirmed Thursday. They are available in packs of two for $1.89 or individually for 99 cents. 

The Bisnuts are being evaluated and there is no word on if or when they will be available on a wider scale. 

According to Carl's Jr. Chief Marketing Officer Brad Haley, the Bisnuts were inspired by other doughnut mash-ups. Hmmm, might he be talking about Dominique Ansel's cronut?

"Since we have our signature Made from Scratch Biscuit dough in all of our restaurants, we tried making donuts out of it, and they tasted great," Haley said in a statement. 

Carl's Jr. is no stranger to the food hybrid craze. Last year the chain launched a strawberry Pop-Tart ice cream sandwich.
