A New Treat For Obese America: Burger King’s Bacon Sundae
“My heart’s going to explode!” (This might be your reaction when hearing about Burger King’s new bacon sundae.) You know what compliments my ice cream eating experience? Pork. On Thursday, the BK bacon sundae blitz begins. Think of this: There’s 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’s as a race of obese fat 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. Like a home security system, your heart should alert you how wrong this is.
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.”
