We three kings of bacon and beef…

Now, it’s been a long time since I last went to Burger King, but I can’t stop seeing ads for this Bacon King sandwich pretty much every time I turn on the TV. (I guess that’s what happens when you watch The Bacon Network 24/7, son!) And hey, it definitely checks all the boxes–beef, bacon, ketchup, mayo, processed cheese on a bun–those are pretty much the five food groups of funk in Flavourtown!

Now, I don’t really like paying nine bucks just for a burger, but this is not a small sandwich, son! You’ve got a buncha nice bites of beef, with the cheese melting into the meat, and some tang from the ketchup…but where’s the bacon, bro???

I dunno guy, but I didn’t think six strips of bacon would result in so many small bites. And it’s got kind of a funky texture–not quite crispy, not quite chewy, kinda like a thinner version of beef jerky. Don’t get me wrong, these burgers weren’t bad–and you KNOW I pounded all three of them, bro!–but I would probably take one Wendy’s Baconator over we three Bacon Kings.

Now, if only BK brought back the bacon sundae, then we’d be gellin’ like a felon, Doctor Broles!!!!

Throwback Thursday: Burger King puts bacon in a sundae!

(Originally written June 13, 2012)

CTV News is reporting that Burger King is set to introduce the bacon sundae, a tasty treat comprised of “rich and creamy vanilla Burger King soft serve ice cream, drizzled with chocolate fudge, caramel and topped with bacon crumbles” with “a thick-cut, hardwood smoked bacon garnish.”  Seems to me that someone at CTV really loves him some BK—or they simply cut-and-pasted from the company’s press release.

This “sweet and savoury dessert” is also good for your health—if you think that being fat is a good thing.  “The sundae clocks in at 510 calories, 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar.”  I think that’s more than Nicole Richie ate all day…

And while this mecca of bacony goodness goes for a mere suggested retail price of $2.49, it looks like you’ll hafta cross the border to get it.  For the moment anyways, the bacon sundae is only available in the States.  Hey Rob Ford, instead of letting city council pass more “dumbest things they’ve done,” how about ramming through a bill to make the bacon train stop in Toronto in time to beat the summer heat?
