Burger King seems to be getting its summer inspiration from Southern barbecue joints, with new menu items such as sweet potato fries, Memphis pulled-pork sandwiches and, to keep things interesting, bacon sundaes.
Summer options also include Whopper or chicken sandwiches made with Carolina or Texas BBQ sauce as well as frozen lemonades, according to Foodbeast, which got a tip that the burger chain is training its employees to prepare the new options.
[Updated, 1:30 p.m.: Burger King confirmed the news, saying that it will officially announce the new lineup on Wednesday. Advertisements for the BBQ menu will feature Burger King’s new tagline: Taste is King.]
The bacon sundae will come with soft-serve ice cream, fudge, caramel and a piece of bacon. Back in April, a tipster wrote to GrubGrade reporting that the item — Beverage? Dessert? Indulgence? — was being tested in Nashville.
