    Never really that fussy about eating anything but eggs or maybe fish as a kid. I probably get killed for not eating veg around here, grandfather was an expert gardner so our veg was probably a bit fresher durng the summer so probably a bit tastier.

    My mother has a vegetable garden every summer. It doesn't help.

    If it's anything like my vegetable garden, it would turn anyone away from vegetables.

    Burger King releasing thier "summer menu" with a bacon sundae. Which goes right along with thier new "go healthy" plan.

    If these "strange unhealthy concoctions" are popular enough for large chains to adopt, then we are in trouble with people's self control.
    It's one thing if it's in a specialty restaurant, or in context of being an exception like carnival food, but a mainstream chain?

    Compared to some of the monstrous concoctions in this thread, a sundae with some bacon on it isn't that horrible. I don't want one, but whatever...

    Bacon is all the rage in haute cuisine right now, especialyl bacon and chocolate. Unless there's a huge amount of bacon in it, it shouldn't be inordinately unhealthy.

    A bacon sundae sounds likely to be due to the current meme more than anything else. I wouldn't be surprised if the sundae didn't last too long, but then I've never gotten the whole bacon meme so what do I know.

    I like bacon quite a lot, but I don't like bacon-flavoured things.

    I guess that would depend on how hot it is outside and how hungry the person who ordered it was.

    But seriously, I don't get the meme either. To me, a sundae with bacon sounds fairly unappetizing.

    Well, it's being advertised as "limited time only," so you're probably right.

    FWIW, the bacon sundae doesn't seem to really be any more unhealthy than their Oreo brownie sundae (other than the high sodium content), so I don't really get what the big deal is.

    At any rate, I have a hard time getting too worked up about what other people eat.

    Especially those bits of soy in a jar they try to pass off as bacon bits.

    I love bacon too. My issue is that some things don't go with "sweet" and some things have to go with "sweet".

    For instance, cinnamon. I once had cinnamon chicken. Nope, cinnamon without sweet just doesn't cut it for me.

    Cinnamon chicken doesn't sound horrible to me, I would be tempted to try it. Is it rolled in cinnamon or is it a sauce?

    Bacon and ice cream screams "stay away!".

    The first time that I saw a commercial for one of those I thought that I'd tuned into Saturday Night Live or some other satire.

    If you get spaghetti at a Greek restaurant it sometimes has things like cinnamon and nutmeg in the sauce. It's actually quite good that way.

    Cinnamon, nutmeg, and so forth have only recently been considered "dessert" spices.

    True, I like nutmeg in my lasagna and creamed spinach and they're not especially sweet.

    I find cinnamon as part of a spice rub to be great on chicken, and pork too. I've never tried it with cinnamon as the only spice, though, might be overwhelming.

    Yep, it was the only spice, and that is probably why it was horrible to me.

    This was one of those "magazine" recipes. Either there were enough people that liked it, or it was one of those tastes that becomes "fashionable" to like.

    I don't even know if my ex prepared it right. But we never had it again because she didn't like it either.

    If you have had Skyline Chilli in Ohio, I'm pretty sure that one of the ingredients in it is cinnamon, though the recipe is secret (the fellow who started the business was Greek).

    A single Wendy's had a special burger called the T-Rex.
    The corporation made them pull it.

    Even though the sandwich kind of fits this thread, I don't see why corporations don't allow at least a little local flair as long as they don't overdo it.

    Also; this might actually be a good sandwich as a family meal. Gives you burgers without all that bread.

    What their ad looked like...
    But; after seeing what one really looks like, I may have second thoughts.

    There's some major, and not very good, photo-shoppery going on in that ad!

    Sorry for the 1 year bump.
    But; it seems the best place for a bacon story... especially since bacon is getting so much attention again for some reason.

    Your guide to the bacon nation
    It gives me the impression that the uses for bacon have been lost over the years and now they think all these bacon uses are new. Certainly, all those dessert type things are novel... not that I would enjoy it though.

    But this one made me laugh.
    Bacon goes haute at Nashville’s Bound’ry, where it is dehydrated, pulverized, and used as a faux breadcrumb for a fried tomato salad.
    The only thing "haute" about that is calling it a "faux breadcrumb".

    Sounds a lot like BacO's to me.

    When we realize that patterns don't exist in the universe, they are a template that we hold to the universe to make sense of it, it all makes a lot more sense.

    Never thought of that.
    Virus driving up pork prices... Pork prices giving the Pork council (or whatever they are called) to drive up demand... backdoor deals to make hype up bacon...
