Another Burger King Fail: Bacon Sundaes

April 11, 2012  |  

It’s not quite crispy chicken with fresh lettuce, three cheeses, and french dressing wrapped up in a tasty flour tortilla (I’ll never be able to get that song out of my head by the way) but I’m going to consider Burger King’s new bacon sundae it’s second fail of the month. Note, it’s only the 11th.

I knew there were some people that really believed bacon goes with anything but I never thought a major corporation would buy into it. I think BK is willing to try anything these days, because the fast food chain is testing out an ice cream sundae topped with chocolate and caramel sauce and what appears to be bacon bits with a whole slice of processed pork in Nashville.

According to Grubgrade, this is one of several new items being rolled out at a special Nashville store. Sweet Potato Fries, BBQ sammies (burger, grilled chicken, and pulled pork varieties) and Frozen Lemonades could also be coming our way soon. Those items don’t sound so bad, but this sundae, I just don’t know. I guess that whole healthy fast food movement is done.

Would you try a bacon sundae from Burger King?

  • The trick is to cover the bacon in chocolate and then add to the ice cream . The tast of the salty bacon mixes with the sweetest of the ice cream mash well if done right .

    LOL I saw this on the simpsons once in Homer’s fantasy

  • Ugh, while this looks terrible, sweet things with bacon in them are not new.  I’ve definitely had bacon ice cream that’s literally made my eyes roll back.

    I made these once and it took everything within me not to eat every single one myself.

    Sounds gross, but funny!  Obviously, a Homer Simpson inspired dessert.

  • Yeah….OK

    Who does the thinking over at BURGER KING…. First that Mary j commercial where she on a table talking about a chicken fkn wrap and NOW THIS!?! BURGER KING….

  • Truthhurtz

    Jack in the Box rolled out with the Bacon Shake a couple months ago. So it sound like BK is just following the trend. I don’t know if I would try it though…

    This is why I stopped eating at BK a looooooooooooong time ago. Plus I don’t eat pork with deserts.

    Some restaurants actually do make desserts with sweet and savory bacon and apparently they are good. I suppose it depends on who is eating. So, it might not be that much of a stretch.

  • tastythoughts

    pfffffffffffffffff this will be good. lol i love me some bacon

  • They have bacon sundaes at Denny’s in Memphis. I’ve moved back to Houston, TX, and I have yet to see one here. A little salt and sugar has never hurt anyone. Lol!

  • Me

    It’s not a fail. People love bacon anything. If I ate pork, I would try it.
