Burger King recently debuted a new morning sweet to complement their new coffee beverages: lightly glazed donut holes.

So Burger King is getting into the holiday spirit* with a couple new desserts. Rather than go the easy peppermint/candy cane route, the King has decreed Winter 2012 to be the Season of Gingerbread, with a limited-time offering of the Gingerbread Cookie Sundae and the Gingerbread Cookie Shake.
If you're one of these inveterate bacon apologists, then you don't need this review to tell you whether to try Burger King's new Bacon Sundae. But if you're a bacon appreciator with a legitimately open mind regarding its place on fast-food soft serve, come right this way.
The big three fast food chains—McDonald's, Wendy's, and Burger King—are all offering some type of blended dessert. At McDonald's, of course it's the McFlurry, a soft-serve ice cream with toppings mixed in. Burger King has introduced the BK Sundae Shake, a choice of shake—chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry—with Oreo topping, whipped cream, and a dash of hot fudge.
