From the looks of it, a Nashville, TN Burger King location has some pretty sweet regional menu offerings. Amidst a report (http://www.grubgrade.com/2012/04/04/test-market-nashville-burger-king-bbq-sandwiches-bacon-sundae-sweet-potato-fries/) of Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwiches, Frozen Lemonades, and Sweet Potato Fries, the location seems to be testing something even more intriguing ó a new Bacon Sundae. The bacon fad is a hot calling card for brands as of late. Dennyís did it before them (http://foodbeast.com/content/2011/03/22/dennys-reveals-a-bacon-maple-sundae-and-other-bacon-heavy-dishes/), Jack in the Box had a bacon milkshake (http://foodbeast.com/content/2012/02/02/jack-in-the-box-has-gone-bacon-crazy-adds-bacon-milkshake-and-blt-cheeseburger/), but from the looks of this spotting out in Nashville, this dessert does something Jack didnít dare do in his take on bacon desserts ó Burger King (http://foodbeast.com/content/tag/burger-king/) actually uses bacon. While no actual shots of the dessert have surfaced, this lawn-sign of BKís Bacon Sundae shows a mound of what we assume is vanilla soft serve, drizzled in what looks to be chocolate and possibly caramel sauce, bits of bacon sprinkled on top, and a strip of bacon for garnish. No telling what the actual thing will look or taste like just yet, but for now, at least we know itís real. Somewhere.http://foodbeast.com/content/2012/04/09/burger-king-testing-a-new-bacon-sundae-because-this-is-america/

I like bacon and I like ice cream, but I don't want bacon on my ice cream. Regardless of health or fat content, it just wouldn't taste very good, and would end up ruining two good things.

I'm unsure, but I reckon that salt/sweet combination might be good. Although the concept of meaty ice cream is one I find challenging.
