    Bacon ice cream? They seriously made bacon ice cream?

    We do have Dennys' up in Canada, but I'm quite glad I've never been to one.
  • ladydiskette  - I applaud you Nella...
    avatar
    I don't know, Nella has got more guts than I do, I would be too nervous to try it because I am afraid I am going to get sick or something. Espically the part where you talk about a trace of the fatty bit. I would probably share Lindsay's reaction too. It would probably make me gag as well.


    *salutes Nella* YOU GO GIRL!

    Hey, they've had COFFEE ice cream for years, so why not? If they made scrambled egg flavored ice cream, it could all be part of This Complete Ice Cream Breakfast.

    ewwww... who? what? how? where? why would this ever be made

    Wow. The guys were so grossed out they were discussing Doctor Who instead!

    But, yeah. Way to go, Nella. I probably would have been more like Lisa(?) and just bummed a bite off of you so I didn't waste my money.

    I wonder, though. Was there any bacon left by the time it got unappetizing?

    Nah, it's just simultaneously we were also discussing Doctor Who and Star Trek. I was complaining about the first two seasons of Enterprise in particular to Handsome Tom. XD

    I saw the ad for this at a Denny's recently. All I asked was "WHY?!".
  • TheAmericanColleen  - Ugh...
    avatar
    Yeah, I've never understood the obsession with bacon. I've never liked it. My mom could never make it properly, so giving up bacon when I became a vegetarian was no problem at all.

    Also, did I randomly hear Linkara discussing Doctor Who with someone?

    Damn this fat fucking country of ours! First the KFC bowl now this. This country seriously needs to cut back on the food....and everything else for that matter.
  • ladydiskette
    avatar
    You think that is bad Zydrate, I remember a couple of years back they was someone on the news who would go to carnivals and fairs to make something called Fried Coca-cola at the food courts.

    I am not shitting.
    And this week I heard they were making fried kool-aide. How the heck is that even possible!!?!?
  • Sylveria

    I saw "Fried Butter" at the fair last year. I don't think anything will top that.
  • Schizoid
    avatar
    The fair around here is getting that this year. It's not really "butter" if I heard right. It's a cream cheese stuffed churro. Sounds yummy! "Fried Coke" (not to be confused with "frying the Coke") is just deep fried batter that is flavored with frozen Coke and then topped with Coke syrup, whip cream and a cherry. I think I've had that before. The Kool-Aid will probably be the same thing. I think the worst deep fried thing I've had was "Deep Fried Cream Cheese". It was basically a brick of cream cheese dipped in fry batter and fried. The taste wasn't bad but the filling was just too much cream cheese (I never thought I'd say that).

    Yes, the bacon fad has gone the distance. Not that I'm against bacon. I love bacon. Hell, I'd give this sundae a shot myself, if I actually ever ate out. Or had the money to. Dammit.

    Fried Coca-cola? Are you telling me that in in an effort to make this country even fatter than it already is the laws of physics have been bent.
  • Sockpuppet

    I love the fact that all fast food restaurants keep putting ridiculous "healthy" things in their menus, and then slap BACON on everything ELSE in their menus.
  • Mr. F  - Gross!

    Who the fuck came up with the idea to serve bacon with icecream?

    You are so brave Nella!

    "Ice Ice Bacon"!

    Nella, I salute your dining courage and intestinal fortitude!

    I remember the old days eating at Denny's late at night. Thankfully I seem to have completely blocked the food out of my memories. If only the intestinal damage would heal.

    Bacon Icecream? Oh my word, I think I'm just staying here in Europa where it's safe.

    Nella, you are very brave to have tried this. I don't think I would have had the guts to try it :D
  • Nephilim
    avatar
    You say that now.. I mean last year they had a Whopper at the Burger King here in Holland topped with cranberry sauce.
    That too was an odd experience.

    As for meat icecream, I've never had it but I know they sell it in Japan at the supermarket. They have, whale, goat, horse, etc.
    I saw an article on it once on a Japanese news site.

    I'm just going to be the odd man out, apparently, and say that I think it looks sort of tasty. I don't know that I would want to eat one every day, but I would certainly be willing to give this dessert a try.
  • Xena91388  - Mmmmm. . . . It's BACON!
    avatar
    I agree, it's does sound tasty enough to try at least once.

    I don't see what everyone's problem is, especially those in "safe" Europe or Asia, at least we don't have Ox Tongue or Artichoke ice-cream. Have you ever tried Green Tea flavored ice cream? It tastes like grass, id much rather have the flavor of smokey bacon and maple syrup over vanilla ice cream any day!

    How can anyone hate bacon? It's great on lean steaks, rice, pancake/egg sandwiches, casseroles, shrimp, ice cream, beans, woven in a blanket and wrapped around sausage. . . . x_X
  • elelgood90
    I like Green tea ice cream. Then again, it was in some carton and it was only a dollar, so maybe I forced myself to like it.
    I do agree about bacon. I love bacon. And I would totallu try a bacon sundae at least once. I haven't been to Dennys since I was very little, and I doubt I'll go anytime soon.

    I'm still hooked on MeekaKitty's Bacon song tho. :)
  • Jade_Ottsel  - I won't lie.
    avatar
    I like bacon...but...that much of it, plus paired with the fact that it's from *Denny's* is enough to make me queasy to no end. Are the Denny's better back east or something? Because Over here (Northern California, SF Bay area region) they're considered to be, uh...not that great. To put it exceedingly lightly. xD
  • Xena91388  - Denny's
    avatar
    The ones I've been too here in FL have been pretty good. Not as awesome as Cosmos but not bad. Better than the Waffle Houses around here which are a step below a crappy McDonald's.

    Bacon is good. I made Dark Chocolate covered bacon, and it was delicious.

  • Phoenix87x  - Denny's Sucks
    Last time I ate at Denny's the fuckers made me wait 35 minutes for scrambled eggs. Haven't been back since and I must say that Denny's is the most rock bottom shit-hole of a restaurant.
  • Bruinetto
    I work at a Denny's and after working the late night shift and seeing this, it makes me happy. I wish the producers of Channel Awesome would visit my Denny's! I'd lose my MIND
  • Linkara
    avatar
    Well, I personally liked the chicken at Denny's. ^^ The fries not so much, but I've found Denny's/Perkins/Baker's Square kind of places tend to do REALLY well with the chicken and I salute you for it.
  • elelgood90
    You just made me jealous by mentioning Perkins. I used to love their chicken tender sandwiches as a kid and their pie.
    Now I know, if I ever end up at a Denny's, I'll get chicken.
  • Spacedin
    avatar
    Do they even have Baker's Squares outside of the midwest...or even MN for that matter? I know I've never seen any outside of it.
  • Larie
    You know, this is interesting.
    At first I couldn't believe this even existed, but then I remembered that here in the Netherlands, we make pancakes with bacon, and when you put maple syrup on it, it's actually really good.
    The fact that it has ice cream and is frozen, however... that is a bit weird.

  • Sirius Cobra  - The brits have had it for a bit longer
    avatar
    The brits, or rather one british chef named Heston Blumenthale, has had a Egg and Bacon ice cream as a dish for a few years already. Here's a youtube link from his awesome food science show he had on Discovery http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=D6CLoRuvGcY

    I salute you, Nella. Not many people would try something like that, as I discovered when I made bacon chocolate chip cookies.
  • Vinterdraken
    For me the worst part would be the icecream. Im a bit wierd and never liked Icecream, Bacon though, sweet sweet bacon, that I can do.
  • Kirsten425  - So who thought up this idea?
    avatar
    I mean, were there a lot of us Americans really demanding bacon in our ice cream? I mean the ice cream at Denny's is bad enough. My brother and I stopped at one with a bunch of other kids years ago because the adult supervisors of our summer field trip from the Boys and Girls Club thought that we all deserved ice cream for good behavior. And the very next day, me, my brother, and everyone else who had gone on the trip were sick with food poisoning. And I have never been to a Denny's since then! So I will never try their lousy ice cream with bacon on top. I'd rather keep my organs intact!

    Cost of sundae: $2.99. Calories: 810. Fat grams: 40. Milligrams of cholesterol: 150. The look on Lindsay's face watching her friend attempt this task: PRICELESS.

    I will say this, though: bacon as part of a dessert CAN work if it is executed well. Case in point: a few months ago, I went to B Spot in Cleveland (one of Iron Chef Michael Symon's restaurants) to try the food. Excellent burger, fantastic fries... and I just HAD to buy it: a Vanilla Bean Apple Pie Bacon Bad-Ass Shake. And it was delicious. For the record, there were bacon crumblings - pretty salty, but did not overpower the apply goodness. It's $5 for all shakes (add $3 if you want alcohol added).

    Plus, I am guilty of also dipping my fries into a Wendy's Frosty in the past; so... (raspberry)

    Besides, there will always be weird food combinations out there that work for some and fail for others. Look at the Shewman Special at Scotty's Brewhouse in various Indiana locations: bacon, jalapeno, and peanut butter... on a burger! And it's a hit there.

    Just remember: everything in moderation. Of course, this is coming from a guy whose avatar here is a Smiley cookie.
  • elelgood90
    Ok, that sounds yummy. I'm jealous now.
    And I dip my fries in my frosties as well. Or in any milkshake. I always have a chocolate shake, so I think the two flavors compliment each other.
