Bacon Sundae Among Burger King's New Summer Menu Items

Scott Olson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Burger King is out with its new menu items for the summer season and the one creating the most buzz is the restaurant's bacon sundae.

The dessert was tested earlier this year in Nashville, Tenn., where it was received well, and starting this week, it will be available at Burger King restaurants nationwide.

In a press release Wednesday, the company said the sundae "features the rich and creamy vanilla BK® soft serve, drizzled with chocolate fudge, caramel and topped with bacon crumbles, complete with a thick-cut, hardwood smoked bacon garnish."

Those daring to try the new treat should be prepared to take a hefty hit to their waistlines: the dessert is said to have 510 calories, 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar.

Along with the bacon sundae, Burger King also unveiled other BBQ-inspired menu items, including several sandwiches, a frozen lemonade and sweet potato fries.  The items will be avaible for a limited time only.

Burger King Releases New Bacon Sundae

PR News Photo/Hemera/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- Bacon used to be known as the deliciously greasy food that sat alongside eggs or was stuffed into a BLT. But times have changed, and the bacon trend has taken over everything from air fresheners to socks to Burger King sundaes.

Burger King’s bacon sundae has the Internet abuzz with poster sightings from a restaurant in Nashville, Tenn.  While the contents of the sundae could not be confirmed, it looks like a vanilla ice cream sundae topped with chocolate and caramel syrups and sprinkled with bacon.

GrubGrade showed posters at the same location for barbecue sandwiches, frozen lemonade and sweet potato fries.

If you’re a big fan of pork but too timid to try it in your dessert, other bacon options include bacon coffins, bacon soap or bacon lip balm.
