Burger King Is Daring You To Eat This

The food scientists at Burger King have announced a new addition to their revamped menu -- a God-damned Bacon Sundae. This shiny new artery puncher contains vanilla ice cream, topped with caramel, hot fudge and bacon sprinkles and will be available to the public this Thursday. ---According to a recent story from the Associated Press, the new dessert item weighs in at a hefty 510 calories, 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar. As part of a new strategy put forth by 3G Capital (who purchased the chain in early 2010) the sweet-and-salty snack is only one of many new "healthier" items, like fruit smoothies, salads, pulled-pork sandwiches, sweet potato fries and snack wraps. 3G Capital will also be changing BK's slogan from "Have it your way" to "Taste is King."

Though stoners are probably rejoicing, many of you are shuddering. But this "invention" comes as no surprise, considering Burger King has had a long history of contempt towards edible food -- leading me to believe that perhaps it should change its slogan from "Taste is King" to "Fuck it, I'll Eat It." If you can't wait till Thursday, then head over to the 575 E. 300 South location, where employees claim they're ready to start slangin' this thing. The limited-time-only menu item runs for $2.49 plus tax.
