Burger King Introduces the Bacon Sundae

13 Jun

Just when you thought fast food couldn’t get worse for you. . .

Burger King announced today that is will add a bacon sundae to its summer menu. The 510 calorie treat, which starts as simple vanilla soft serve with hot fudge and caramel sauce, features a strip of back as well as bacon crumbles. While the sundae won’t make its national debut until the summer, Burger King began serving the treat this April in Nashville. The company claims the salty-sweet dessert “took Nashville by storm.”

I don’t know that’s more disgusting about this item. The fact that is contains so much sugar and fat that it could kill you (61 grams and 18 grams, respectively), or the fact that people actually like this. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate dessert that mixes sweet with savory (balsamic strawberries anyone?). But I can’t wrap my head around mixing thick, probably under cooked, pieces of bacon with ice cream. Perhaps I just prefer my ice cream the old-fashioned way – on a cone with sprinkles.

Does the Bacon Sundae make your mouth water or make you want to gag? Let The Sweet Treat know in the comment section!

      Agreed. It’s not so much the bacon in ice cream, but the fact that it’s 510 calories. I could easily make a similar dessert for half that!

    […] about this being a sweet blog, remember that bakers can dabble in the savory as well. Heck, even ice cream shops can do […]
