From August 17 until August 31, Burger King is offering its vanilla soft serve for only 50 cents. It is available in a cone or cup.

The item is on the regular menu but usually for more than 50 cents -- prices vary from store to store. However, if you want the bacon sundae -- which is made with the vanilla soft serve -- you're still going to have to pay full price.

This current promotion is one among several "value" items at Burger King. The chain is also testing a $1 bacon burger. Check out a store locator here.
