Meet the new Burger King bacon sundae

BK-Bacon-Sundae

How do you up the classic ice cream sundae made with vanilla ice cream and swirls of hot fudge and caramel? Maybe rainbow sprinkles? If you're Burger King, you add bacon.

The fast food restaurant chain has launched a  limited-edition summer menu, and the star of its lineup of summer barbecue-inspired burgers and fries is none other than a bacon sundae. The new dessert features vanilla BK soft serve, chocolate fudge, caramel and bacon crumbles. If that's not enough bacon for you, the sundae is garnished with a piece of thick-cut hardwood-smoked bacon for dipping.

The rest of the menu reads like the chalkboard at a barbecue restaurant you'd find somewhere in the South, with items such as the Memphis pulled-pork sandwich, Carolina barbecue sandwiches, Texas barbecue sandwiches, frozen lemonade and sweet potato fries.

The sundae and the rest of the menu are available starting this week at participating Burger King locations.
