Chocolate of the Day:
Good - Good +
Calories: 510 calories in 1 sundae
Cost: $2.69 for 1 sundae
Purchased from: Burger King, in Redwood City, CA
Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Backyard BBQ and Bacon theme week. Today the "backyard" belonged to the local Burger King. I had a bun-free version of their Carolina BBQ Whopper (burger) on a plate (at right, buried under lettuce).
And now, let's cut directly to the chocolate. For a limited time only, Burger King was offering a bacon sundae.
That is correct. A bacon sundae. Soft serve vanilla ice cream in a clear plastic cup was festooned with ribbons of chocolate and caramel sauce; and the sundae was topped with pieces of real, hardwood smoked bacon. The saltiness of the bacon added crunch and helped balance the sweetness of this sundae.
Note: As you might expect, the bacon sundae was not a low-calorie treat. It was a 510 calorie sundae, and the sugar and sodium levels were somewhat elevated; but it was quite tasty.
