Continuing to chronicle our obsession with bacon, we bring you news of the most exciting item that Burger King will be launching as part of their Summer Menu: Bacon Sundae. Clocking in at a hearty 510 calories, 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar, the tasty dessert will feature vanilla soft serve with fudge, caramel, bacon crumbles and a piece of bacon. It’s part of the chain’s Summer Menu, which also includes other non-traditional BK items like Memphis Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich, Sweet potato fries, and Frozen Lemonade. Ever since being taken private by the private equity firm 3G Capital in late 2010, the company has been expanding its offering and repositioning itself to cater to more than young men, potentially appealing to moms and families as well.
Expect the Summer Menu (with a BACON SUNDAE!) to be available throughout the summer or while supplies last.
