bacon sundae

It’s an “unholy union”!

The Guardian thinks you just need to stop, okay? Just stop. This is what they have to say to you:

Is anyone else feeling queasy about the bacon-in-everything thing? I’ll tell you what pushed me over the cured pork edge: the recently opened “meat bar” at Shaka Zulu in London, which serves a range of carnivorous cocktails including Bloody Bacons. These alcoholic fry-ups in a glass feature bacon vodka and crispy smoked bacon. And a skewer of soft cheese on the side.

It’s just the latest in a run of worrying bacon news. The US is braced for its first bacon reality TV show. And Burger King recently launched a bacon sundae – vanilla ice cream slathered in fudge sauce and topped with lardons. Oliver Thring might enjoy the latter as an amusing pudding course to a hot dog stuffed crust pizza but for my money bacon mania is spinning out of control.

Here is where to buy those things and how much they cost:
Bloody Bacon – served at Shaka Zulu, a 24 hour mature Bloody Mary mix, bacon vodka served with celery, crispy smoked bacon, a skewer of soft cheese and tomato. $24.

Burger King Bacon Sundae – Sweet and savory made with cool, creamy and velvety vanilla soft serve, chocolate fudge and smooth caramel, made to order with our new thick hardwood smoked bacon. Limited Time Only. $2.49

I am pretty sure this entire Guardian article is a secret advertisement for Shaka Zulu and Burger King. Well played, Shaka Zulu and Burger King
