Tomorrow, June 14, Burger King is releasing new items as part of its limited-time summer menu. The star of the menu? Bacon sundaes (first tested in Tennessee back in April) made with vanilla soft serve, fudge, caramel, bacon crumbles, and a piece of bacon. (Maybe they're making up for their health-minded rebranding effort back in April when they introduced fruit smoothies, salads, and chicken wraps.)

Other items on the summer menu:

  • Memphis Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich
  • Carolina BBQ Whopper or Chicken Sandwich
  • Texas BBQ Whopper or Chicken Sandwich
  • Sweet potato fries
  • Frozen lemonade
