Just when we thought fast food news could not get any more exciting, Burger King announced that it will be offering a bacon sundae throughout the U.S. this summer.
The dessert — a 510 calorie monstrosity featuring both a whole strip of bacon and bacon crumbles atop a fudge and caramel sundae — was released in April in Nashville to reasonable fanfare, but will now receive a wide release as part of Burger King’s expanded summer menu.
Burger King first saw success for its bacon sundae earlier this year when it “took Nashville, TN by storm,” according to a company press release. The cold treat — which boasts 8 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar — is described in the release as a “sweet and savory dessert [featuring] rich and creamy vanilla soft serve, drizzled with chocolate fudge, caramel and topped with bacon crumbles, complete with a thick-cut, hardwood smoked bacon garnish.”
I like bacon and a caramel/fudge sundae as much as the next guy but I don't know what to make of this. I mean, the fact that it's actually being sold at one of the biggest fast food chains in the world is is quite hilariously awesome. No doubt about that whatsoever. But I'm just not sure about how well bacon could taste on top of an ice cream sundae. I guess there's only one way to find out.
Have you given this bad boy a try or have any sort of opinion about it? Let us know in the comments.
