Burger King’s summer menu includes a new dessert that’s riding high on the bacon fetish that has swept America in the last few years. The Bacon Sundae is your basic Sundae dessert with a few pieces of bacon shoved in and sticking out.
This is obviously not a health food, nor do we expect it to be. What we would like to know is what this product is made from. We scoured BK’s website and called their customer hotline. Unfortunately they did not provide any assistance other than pointing us to the nutrients listed on the site.

We checked again and did not find any ingredient information. We were able to find some nutrition info though:

Fine and dandy if you’ve got 500 calories to splurge today, but we’d really like to make sure there are no problematic additives in this product. You know, things like hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, mono and di-glycerides, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colorings, artificial flavorings. You get it, the good stuff.
Please Burger King, share your Bacon Sundae ingredients with us. There’s nothing to hide, is there?
