Just in time for the holidays, Chipotle on Thursday is dropping new merch, including a “fan-inspired” Car Napkin Holder designed to be the perfect gift for those who enjoy car mukbangs.

The Car Napkin Holders clip to a car sun visor for easy access, like a tissue holder.

They are priced at $30, which is easily more than three times the price of a similar product that holds tissues. But Chipotle’s Car Napkin Holder price includes a gift card for a free entrée by Dec. 31.

The good news is that Chipotle is encouraging people to steal napkins to fill the Chipotle Car Napkin Holder.



Also coming Thursday to is a new line of 100% cotton Mystery Tees for $25, each designed by one of four artists as a limited-edition design.

The artists include New York-based Small Talk Studio; Sebastian Curi in Los Angeles; Julia Dufosse in Austin, Texas; and London-based Jasmin Sehra.  Rather than allowing buyers to select the shirt they want, the idea is to purchase a mystery shirt, and they find out which when the gift is unwrapped.
