Burger King Unveils Bacon Sundae
Bacon, bacon, bacon. Yum. I could eat it all day. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert; I will eat a pound in a sitting–much to my poor kidneys’ dismay. I know I am not alone in my love of bacon… not when recipes for the “Bacon Explosion” are floating around the Internet. Thankfully, our love has not gone unheard, and the good folks over at Burger King have unveiled their summer menu with a special treat for us bacon aficionados.
I give you: the bacon sundae, an ice cream treat both filled AND garnished with the glorious meat product. Yes, yes, A MILLION TIMES YES!!! The sundae hit Burger King menus on June 14th, and will remain available all of summer, until fall comes around and ruins our fun. In their press release, Burger King explained, “The sweet and savory dessert features the rich and creamy vanilla BK® soft serve drizzled with chocolate fudge, caramel, and topped with bacon crumbles, complete with a thick-cut, hardwood smoked bacon garnish.”
Ugh. Okay. Stop. Are you drooling? Cause I am. Buckets. In fact, I’m already seeking medical assistance as the premeditated heart attack/brain freeze already has a steel grip on me. Of course, the sundae has 510 calories, 18 grams of fat, and 61 grams of sugar… so much for maintaining this beach body. I want to be mad, but Burger King really hits the nail on the head with this Summer Menu. They also have a few other additions, including a pulled pork sandwich (not sure if gusta…) AND sweet potato fries. If there is one thing that I love almost as much as bacon, it’s sweet potato anything. Fried, mashed, baked; if it’s sweet potato, it’s going in and around my mouth area. I swear, it’s as if the big wigs over at Burger King were just like, “Who could use an increase in their body mass index… Oh! I know! That RACHEL chick over at BANGSTYLE! Yeah! She has NO self control!”
At the risk of sounding like that dog in those Beggin Strips commercial (TOO LATE), I just want to reiterate that am looking forward to destroying my insides this summer, care of Burger King. All that’s left to say is “SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY.”
