Fast food chain Burger King wants you to "have it your way", and apparently they believe you simply must have an ice cream dessert complete with breakfast staple bacon! (We know Homer Simpson would be an immediate fan!)
The company is launching a series of new pork, beef and chicken sandwiches on Thursday for a limited summertime run. The icing on the cake for the special summer food series is definitely their new Bacon Sundae—vanilla soft serve ice cream with hot fudge, caramel, a heaping serving of bacon crumbles and a whole piece of yummy fried bacon, a trend that started in Nashville, Tenn. earlier this year.
The artery-clogging pièce de résistance weighs in at high-flying 510 calories, 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar. The chain is also touting a new slogan, "Taste Is King". New commercials have been celebrating the popularity of summer barbecues to highlight the chain’s emphasis on fire-grilling burgers. Earlier in the year, Burger King also began offering a more healthier alternative menu, featuring fruit smoothies, fresh salads and wraps. Now that the health-conscious consumers have been taken care of, BK obviously wants to continue catering to the junk food junkies that clog the drive-through day in/day out.
