The sin of gluttony is a bad one

Last night, we got a rare treat with the Husband actually being in town.  We were sitting in the back yard together, relaxing, catching up, and more than a few of us were craving something sweet.

The Husband said he had an idea for a fabulous dessert and ordered all of us in the car.

He refused to tell anyone where we were going, even me, and the suspense in the car was palpable.  We threw out possible guesses and named several ice cream parlors, bakeries, and restaurants along the way.

With each passing mile, our mouths just salivated.  I expected at any moment for us to pull up to a new, untried place, and was giddy with excitement.

Not to mention, by this time, extremely hungry.

Imagine my horror surprise when we pull into the parking lot of Burger King.

I half expected him to yell "Gotcha!" as we pulled back out again and headed to our real destination.

Sadly, that WAS our destination.

Shock turned to annoyance as I said, "Burger King?  What. the. eff?"

Annoyance turned to disgust when he told me what he wanted to order from there.

Internet, I give you the worst dessert in the history of mankind:

On principle alone, I refused to try it. Even when the gluttonous sounds of pleasure emanated all around me, I did not give in.  There are just some things that should not meet.  Some worlds that should never collide.  I might eat my weight in cookie dough, but I certainly never do it with cured salty meat in the batter.

I do have some class.

And I will never know what possessed the people at BK headquarters to combine ice cream and bacon.

Probably the same mental illness that possessed my Husband to drive 20 minutes to buy it.

Is he banned from making late night dessert decisions? What is up with men and their everything-in-the-kitchen-sink-wrapped-up-in-a-burrito appetites?

I agree about the sundae. Just wrong. So wrong.

I should add that my husband has bought burritos that have french fries in them. Sick.

TOTALLY AGREE! What's with BACON in dessert? I love bacon & love dessert, BUT NOT TOGETHER!!!

Head over to Mr. C's for me. I'm starving for that yumminess,

My friend's husband LOVES these. No joke. He also loves bacon chocolate, which he purchases on special order from a fancy-pants European place. I refused to try both, too. Yuk.

Matt said...

You cannot fault him. He is just another victim to BK's mind-altering marketing schemes.

Although, I will tell you that this product of theirs was a real hit for me:

Now that you have posted this on the web, you should expect him to be arrested by Michelle Obama's food police. Nice move, Idiot.

Even I find this disgusting. And I grew up dipping lettuce in melted butter.

Even worse Burger King's coke doesn't even taste good! :)

Juli said...

OMG no. Just no in all sorts of ways.

It's just a question of time before Burger King begins to offer those Paula Deen burgers where two Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts are served as the bun...that special burger would be the perfect compliment to that bacon laced dessert.

Dan's comment totally made me burst out laughing...I hate it when that happens ;).

Nasty. However, I did try a bacon maple donut recently and it wasn't awful.

Liz said...

Are they serious? That is gluttony on a whole new level.

Best. Brother in law. Ever. Stick to your guns Josh! There are few things that wouldn't deserve a good bacon-ation.
