Burger King is expanding its summer arsenal in a rather interesting way. Starting Thursday, the fast food chain will be offering a number of summer barbecue staples, including pulled pork and barbecue chicken sandwiches. What will really turn heads, though, is the “bacon sundae.” Surely a homage to America, the sundae will include “vanilla soft serve with fudge, caramel, bacon crumbles and a piece of bacon.”
Burger King has always been a go-to whenever times call for dollar menu moves. But I’m not too sure about a bacon sundae. A recipe like that would leave people with Taco Bell-style “bubble guts.” Still, hats off for creativity. The sheer novelty of the item will surely attract legions of teenagers with nothing better to do, Instagraming each other with ironic mouthfuls of bacon. And, on another note entirely, if BK can perfect the fast food pulled-pork sandwich, more power to them. At the very least, they deserve a pat on the back for trying to further the science of awesome fast food.
