A New Treat for Obese America: Burger King's Bacon Sundae

Posted: 06/14/2012 11:41 am

"My heart's going to explode!" (This might be your reaction when hearing about Burger King's new bacon sundae.) You know what complements my ice cream eating experience? Pork. On Thursday, the BK bacon sundae blitz begins. Think of this: There are starving people in India -- yet we're such a decadent society that we put bacon in our ice cream sundaes to help accelerate the potential heart attack process. Why does the rest of the planet view America as a nation of obese people? Is it because we sprinkle our ice cream desserts with fried pork?

Irony: Just last week, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg devised a plan to fight obesity by banning the sale of super-sized drinks at fast food restaurants. Fans of the bacon sundae will be stuffing their face-holes with vanilla soft serve with fudge, caramel, bacon crumbles and a piece of bacon. The salty-sweet dessert clocks in at 510 calories, 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar. How much saffron extract would I need to completely suppress my appetite over the thought of trying this?

The limited-time dessert item is part of Burger King's latest push to win back customers -- who aren't concerned with living past the age of 55. It's all part of Burger King's new marketing campaign: "Live Fast. Die Young. Leave a Fatty-Looking Corpse."

A few other of BK's offerings include the Chili Cheeseburger Sundae: "Why is my heart is palpitating rapidly!"

Burger King's Chicken Fried Sundae: "Half my body is suddenly paralyzed!"

Burger King's Grand Slam Breakfast Sundae: "Does anyone know CPR?"
