DETROIT (WXYZ) — The new name for HopCat's signature fries is out of this world!

The restaurant revealed Monday their fries will now be called "Cozmik Fries."

In December, HopCat announced it will change the name of its "Crack Fries" because "drug addiction is not a joke."

In a blog post, CEO Mark Gray said the company chose the name more than 11 years ago "as a reference to the addictive quality of the fries and their cracked pepper seasoning."

"The crack epidemic and the lasting impact on those it affects is not funny and never was," Gray said in the post.

There will be a new reprint of menus companywide in mid-January to reflect the change.
