Such as the Burger King bacon sundae.
I don't have any interest in trying the bacon sundae, but not because of the bacon. Soft-serve ice cream is not something I normally eat. "Smooth caramel" doesn't get me off the couch.
Bacon in desserts? I can be in favor of that.
I chased down a dessert place on St. Denis in the Plateau neighborhood in Montréal. This place has a frozen maple bacon cake. I went out of my way to chase down this bacon dessert.
My tip was correct with one catch. They sold the cake but not by the slice. $48 and it would all by mine. I would have to find 11 strangers to finish this cake.
The young gentleman offered me maple sugar ice cream. Montréal and Quebec are known for their maple sugar and maple syrup, though this was at the end of the maple season.
The ice cream would have been a nice runner-up if only I could add one ingredient: bacon. I begged the guy to see if he could put bacon on my ice cream. He checked in the back.
Would I get the taste of bacon and maple? Alas, he couldn't find any cooked bacon to fulfill my dream.
The maple sugar ice cream was very good, even without the bacon. Though bacon would have made it better.
You can see the pieces of bacon inside the cookie. This wasn't going to be bacon with maple syrup ice cream, but this would be bacon in a dessert.
If this has been a bacon chocolate chip cookie, tasting the bacon would have been easier. The oatmeal, a good thing in cookies, was too overpowering in this cookie.
So while I appreciated the bacon, the smoky meat was more of a sidelight instead of being the star of the cookie. Still, the oatmeal chocolate chip cookie was made a little bit better by the presence of bacon.
Bacon on a dessert makes better sense than bacon in a dessert. As good as the cookie was, sprinkled bacon on that maple syrup ice cream would make me race back to Montréal.
This review points out that Burger King uses quite a bit of bacon, and we are pleased to hear that. If I'm going to put bacon on a dessert, that dessert has to be worthy. Bacon is worthy. I am worthy.
