Burger King's bacon sundae debuted
in Nashville earlier this year and from Thursday it will be launched nationwide. The unusual combination concoction is part of the hamburger chain's summer barbecue limited-time items, which will be advertised with the new tag line "Taste is King."
According to Newsday
the bacon sundae contains a massive "510 calories, 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar." It comprises soft vanilla ice cream served with fudge, caramel, bacon crumbles and a piece of bacon.
Burger King isn't the only chain to attempt to draw attention by introducing provocative desserts. According to Gothamist
other sweet-savoury combos have included bacon and egg ice cream, bacon milkshake and maple bacon sundaes.
