    Yes, unhealthy food only exists within the borders of the United States of America.

    Just a gimmick. Not even for a niche market or anything, just plain attention grabbing for the OMG value. People want food with integrity. The other menu items they're rolling out could be interesting:

    The rest of Burger King's summer menu includes:
    -- Memphis Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich.
    -- Carolina BBQ Whopper or Chicken Sandwich.
    -- Texas BBQ Whopper or Chicken Sandwich.
    -- Sweet potato fries.
    -- Frozen Lemonade.

    Their new slogan is 'Taste is King' no longer 'Have It Your Way'. The parent company is going public this month.

    Exactly. It was the same way with the KFC Double Down. People try it once for the novelty value and it gets everyone talking.

    I will order exactly one of these, eat it, potentially feel ill, and then never look at them again. For science.

    I hate fake BBQ. Always so far off the mark that it comes down to being only a name and nothing taste wise resembles the actual style of BBQ.

    ok, i was expecting little bits of crunchy bacon sprinkles... but a long slab of bacon will get soggy and greasy...

    bacon is actually an interesting balance to sweets... i've been converted ever since i've tried bacon and chocolate...

    if the bacon bits are crisp... it may be interesting... but not sure with ice cream... bacon + caramel, bacon + fudge... works

    but i don't see myself buying this... i may nuke up some bacon to taste at home though...

    Urban BBQ is great if you've ever been there. There's one in Olney, MD probably the closest one to you.
