Burger King Bacon Sundae: A Review

So last week I found out that Burger King was going to come out with their own Bacon Sundae.  I decided that my plan for this weekend was to eat one, then spend the rest of the day in bed because after that why bother.  As I wrote on Tumblr:

I know what I’m doing this weekend (spending a whole day in bed because after eating one of those why bother that’s just a lost day)

Ultimately, I wasn't able to get my hands on one until about 11pm on Sunday, so it wasn't really a whole day, but I did go to bed pretty much right after it.

Much like the Denny's Bacon Sundae from last year, the smaller chunks of bacon mixed with the ice cream added a nice chewy, salty texture that really contributed to the overall flavor.  It was good ice cream, too -- I enjoyed that.

But the larger pieces of bacon really took away from the experience.  They were more well-cooked than the Denny's ones.  One might even characterize them as burnt.  I wasn't able to eat all of the pieces of bacon in my sundae, and had to remove two or three.

The excessive quantity of caramel syrup was an advantage.  Really, that was delicious.

Overall, I don't regret doing it, but I'm not going to get one again.  (I might get Burger King ice cream again.  That was very good.)

Burger King Bacon Sundae

(via Boing Boing) I could write about what it says about American society that we have bacon-flavored sundaes.  I could write about the interesting and elaborate issue of pork futures as fast food business.  I could write about the weird, fetishistic internet trend, bleeding over into real life, to baconize everything.

But I won't.  Instead, I'm going to say this:

Bacon ice cream is delicious, and I don't know why.

Denny's did bacon sundaes a while ago, some time last year I think.  I had one, because a friend insisted that I needed to try it.  It sounded awful, but it was ice cream and it was free, so I went for it.  And holy crap why is bacon that good in ice cream.

That is all.
