I could write about the BBBLT Sandwich, the Triple Bacon Sampler, Pepper Bacon with Eggs, and Ultimate Bacon Breakfast that Denny’s is rolling out for their bacon celebration called Baconalia, but those sound boring. (Yes, Baconalia is an actual festival.) I could also talk about their slightly unusual Baconalia dishes, the Bacon Flapjacks and Bacon Meatloaf. However, as odd as those two sound, the Baconalia menu item that stands out the most is their new Maple Bacon Sundae.
The dessert, or your drunken menu choice at two in the morning, brings together the Ernie and Bert of flavors, sweet and savory, topping a scoop of vanilla ice cream with maple syrup and pieces of bacon. Even though the taste of the Jones Bacon Flavored Soda still haunts me today, I might be willing to give the Maple Bacon Sundae a try and participate in Denny’s Bacon Fest, Baconival, Bacon Fair, Baconstock, Bacon Festival, Baconpalooza, or whatever they called it.
The Maple Bacon Sundae and the other bacon dishes will only be available for a limited time at participating Denny’s restaurants.
