Burger King's sundae, which features bacon bits and a full strip of bacon atop vanilla ice cream (with hot fudge, of course), packs 510 calories, 18 grams of fat, 61 grams of sugar. But that doesn't matter to Reynolds, who says he's going to try the sundae tonight.

"I've made sundaes with candied bacon for years," he says. "Adding bacon can only make a sundae better."
