Burger King Bacon Sundae

baconsundae.jpgBacon has become all the rage in recent years and is showing up in places you would never expect to find it, like bacon olive oil, bacon soda, bacon vodka, bacon jam, bacon floss, and bacon toothpaste. Burger King is the latest fast food company to come to the bacon party with their new, limited-time only Bacon Sundae. Itís made with vanilla soft serve, chocolate fudge sauce, caramel sauce, bacon pieces, and a slice of bacon. I was surprised by the quality of the vanilla soft serve. I guess I was expecting it to be like the soft serve you get at McDonaldís (in their sundaes and McFlurries). But, it was much smoother and creamier, like what you find at Dairy Queen. The bacon had a nice flavor and was very crispy Ė a nice contrast to the soft ice cream. As strange as it may seem to some, bacon really is a great accompaniment to ice cream, chocolate, and caramel. Trust me. Unless you just donít like bacon, it would be hard not to enjoy the sweet and salty flavor combination of the Bacon Sundae. Too bad itís only a limited time item. It really deserves to be on the menu permanently, or at least until the bacon fad fades away.

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

I tried the pulled pork sandwich and the sweet potato fries and I have to say that I was very impressed. I was not expecting much but Burger King really surprised me. I hope they make these items a permanent menu item.

Guess I will have to give Burger King's new menu a try, beginning with the new bacon sundae! I never cared much for their food before, and the service was slower than slow, but what the heck. It is only a couple blocks away and their new menu has piqued my interest. Thank you for the review.
