Bacon is back! For a limited time only, Denny's is hosting what they're calling the "Baconalia" festival with seven bacon-laden dishes including a Triple Bacon Sampler, a BBBLT Sandwich, and the implausible (but not improbable) Maple Bacon Sundae. It features maple flavored syrup, vanilla ice cream, and "a generous sprinkle of our diced hickory-smoked bacon."
Last year writer Josh Ozersky called this era "the Periclean age of bacon," and we're just living in it, right now. So much so that on Friday San Francisco ice cream maker Humphry Slocombe introduced a prosciutto ice cream flavor.
Below, Denny's Baconalia manifesto, plus a video of someone who's already eaten the Maple Bacon Sundae:
