Now, this is far from the worst thing a fast-food restaurant has ever come up with. For instance, unlike the Jack in the Box bacon milkshake, it appears to actually contain bacon, not just bacon-flavored syrup. And for awhile, even foodies seemed to be getting on the bacon dessert train. It’s just possible that there’s real gustatory value to this thing, though personally I never intend to find out.

But keep this in mind if your interest is piqued by the idea of vanilla ice cream, hot fudge, caramel, and bacon: This is Burger King soft-serve, Burger King hot fudge, and Burger King bacon we’re talking about. If you can’t make a better one at home, I will personally Kickstart your stomach pump.
