There's a new way for fans to enjoy White Castle. 

On Thursday, the fast food chain announced the release of White Castle Bites – bite-sized snacks that look similar to the White Castle version of pizza rolls.

White Castle Bites – which come in Hamburger and Cheeseburger flavors – are made with beef and onion and can be found in the freezer aisle of the grocery store, according to a press release.
