Burger King’s army of lab technicians has joined other food chains in creating the greatest or most terrible thing to come to fast food since the Double Down: the bacon dessert.
BK’s bacon sundae features vanilla soft serve, chocolate fudge, caramel, and bacon crumbles, according to the company. It follows in the footsteps of the Jack in the Box bacon shake, and a similar frozen treat featuring bacon from Denny’s.
The King may have picked a good time to shake the bacon in front of consumers—the price of pork bellies has recently dipped about 10 percent. Either way, the new treat proves something fast-food gobblers have always known: Bacon tastes good on everything.
