Fast Summer Food


Fast food restaurants are rolling out their summer specials; and they’re pulling out all the ingredients.

You might find a few extra options the next time you’re in your favorite drive thru. For example; need an after dinner treat? Consider Burger King’s limited edition bacon sundae. At 510 calories it contains vanilla soft serve topped with fudge, caramel, bacon crumbles and a slice of bacon. A treat similar to Jack in the Box’s bacon milkshake which debuted in February.

The king’s summer menu will also include a pulled pork barbecue sandwich, sweet potato fries and frozen lemonade. These could also be an answer to the recently released Doritos taco from Taco Bell.

This became the most successful launch in the company’s history with 100 million sold in the first ten weeks of release. Next month Taco Bell will add a cantina bell menu to its list of options. It includes ingredients such as black beans, corn salsa and herb marinated chicken.

While the new summer menus have something for your sweet tooth and your waist line; restaurants are just hoping it’s enough for their bottom line.
