Takeaway giant launches new bacon ice cream sundae

Takeaway giant, Burger King, have unveiled a brand new desert for their menu; the bacon ice cream sundae. The new product is currently only available at Burger King outlets in Nashville Tennessee where the sweet and savoury desert is being trialled amongst its customers.

Fast food providers are pulling out all the stops to outdo one another with increasingly outlandish and wacky addition to their menus. Earlier this week we reported on how Pizza Hut has just launched the new hot dog stuffed crust pizza in the UK at an eye-watering 270 calories a slice.

Now Burger King is upping the stakes in the fast food market by introducing the bacon ice cream sundae. The desert, priced at $2.49, features vanilla ice cream intertwined with fudge sauce topped off with salty pieces of crispy cooked bacon. Burger King will gauge the response to the new savoury and sweet sundae from their trial at their stores in Nashville over the coming weeks.

Burger King, which is currently ranked as the third biggest burger chain in the world behind McDonalds and Wendy’s, revealed plans recently to introduce a number of new dishes to their menu including the bacon sundae, also strawberry and banana smoothies, Caesar salads and sweet potato fries.

While Burger King’s bacon sundae may be grabbing the headlines this week, technically they’re not the first food provider to offer bacon in a desert form. Celebrity chef Heston Blumenthal famously had added a bacon and egg ice cream to his restaurant menu, while Jack in the Box have included a bacon milkshake to their menu.
