Florida Travel Guide to Burger King’s new bacon sundae

The folks at Burger King are pretty darn clever. Launching a brand new bacon sundae just in time for Father’s Day? Genius. Because, really, how many dads out there would not enjoy sitting down to a bowl of soft serve ice cream topped with fudge, caramel and bacon?

Well, maybe the dads who are watching their caloric intake, seeing as this “whopper” of a dessert packs a fattening punch with its 510 calories, 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar!

Burger King tries to lure back customers with new menu offerings

Starting Thursday, June 14, several new options will appear on the Burger King menu in an effort by the company to win back some of its slipping market share. The company is doing this by adding several new chicken, beef and pork sandwiches to its list of offerings, as well as the sweet and salty bacon sundae dessert. Some of the items on the new menu – which will only be offered until September 3 – include:

  • Memphis Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich
  • Carolina BBQ Whopper or Chicken Sandwich
  • Texas BBQ Whopper or Chicken Sandwich
  • Sweet potato fries
  • Frozen Lemonade

Burger King expanded its menu earlier this year by adding some new salads, snack wraps and fruit smoothies, clearly trying to provide options to those customers wishing to watch their figure even while dining in a fast food establishment. We’ll be interested to see how these new BBQ and bacon options go down!
