What’s Wrong with this Picture?

Unless this is a hoax, it’s the new bacon sundae, debuting this week at Burger King.

Kill me now…oh, wait…you’re already doing that.

See here and here for recent OTE thoughts on such matters.

Update: Well…to my surprise, many of you apparently enjoy a nice bowl of ice cream with bacon.  I guess if someone offerred me a bite, I’d try it.  But for the sake of my waistline, I would hope I didn’t like it too much.

    This past weekend I served homemade ice cream at an enormous annual ice-cream social/charity benefit here in Nashville; I was too busy to do much sampling of other people’s offerings, but the big buzz was bacon-flavored ice cream. It seems to be a trend.

    First, bacon is delicious (and not just for breakfast and burgers). Second, the use of bacon in savory/sweet combinations has been on the rise. It’s not really a shock that fast food would pick it up on a trial basis (though the entire strip included is a bit much).

    I have to admit I had bacon brittle on ice cream for dessert at an upscale restaurant once and it was quite interesting. I really like sea salt on my dark chocolate and this is similar as it adds a bit of savory to the sweet.

    That said, I can’t see trying this (not that I even go to BK).

    This will be a huge seller for BK. I know middle-ages guys who probably haven’t been to BK in years and if they knew about this sundae, they’d jet to BK ASAP!

    Well, people around the world are quite inventive with various methods of suicide by food, see e.g. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/today/reports/misc/unhealthyfoods_20040621.shtml. Some warrant nominations for the famous Darwin Award. How about Chocolate-covered lard? – the recipe is on the linked page.

    Hey, Jared! Would you try it if they had a version with sugar-free ice cream and turkey bacon? 😛

      As far as I can tell, sugar-free ice cream kinda sucks. Turkey bacon is great.

      I mean, maybe I lack vision, but I’ve got no desire to combine ice-cream and bacon.
