Last month, I got three different texts (one all the way from a friend in Texas) all about the same thing: Burger King had a Bacon Sundae.
It’s pretty great when people hear bacon and think of you.
So, I felt it my duty to try it and report to the masses. And, I finally made it to Burger King to give it a try.
In all honesty, I specifically went to show hubs their awesome drink machine. It’s magic, I tell ya.
But as long as I was there, might as well see what all the hype was about.
First off, having the staff laugh at you when you place an order can be a little disheartening. But they weren’t laughing too hard to make a pretty darn good looking sundae.
Just so we’re clear, that’s vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, caramel, bacon sprinkles, and one giant strip of bacon on top.
My verdict: It’s good. Not great.
Hubs’ verdict: Meh.
Kids’ verdict: Not eating that with your mouth.
If you plan on trying it, I suggest giving it a good stirring first, so you don’t get a lot of bacon in one bite. Less is more when you’re talking bacon in your ice cream. And never, I repeat NEVER, eat that big slab of bacon on the top.
Even as a bacon nut, (mmm, bacon flavored peanuts?), I’ll say it’s not run-out-right-now-and-get-one-awesome. However, if you enjoy the whole sweet salty thing, you should try it if you’re in the neighborhood.
