Burger King has unleashed their Bacon Sundae just in time to ruin people's waistlines for the summer.  This sundae boasts not just the usual vanilla ice cream with chocolate fudge, caramel -- it's also topped with crumbled and sliced bacon, as its name implies.  

Even worse, it's not the the only bacon sundae out there, or even the unhealthiest.  Read on for more.

America's obsession with bacon has hit an all-time high with this fatty dessert. The maple bacon sundae is part of Denny's limited time "Baconalia" menu.

The sundae is made up of layers of maple-flavored syrup, 2 generous scoops of vanilla ice cream, and plenty of hickory-smoked bacon. 

With more fat and calories than a whole meal should contain, you might want to skip this dessert—it may turn you into a real porker.

Pizza Hut Middle East's Chicken Fillet and Cheese Burger Crown Crust Pizza

Estimated > 600 calories per slice

Estimated > 23 grams fat per slice

Pizza Hut Middle East has taken its crazy crusts one step further with the new Chicken Fillet Crown Crust Pizza and the Cheese Burger Crown Crust Pizza.  Lovers of both pizza and cheeseburgers can order a pizza topped with cheeseburger ingredients -- beef, tomatoes, lettuce and special sauce -- surrounded by "grilled mini cheeseburgers in golden brown crusts."  

Or if chicken is on your mind, order a smorgasbord of poultry - breaded chicken tenders and chicken strips atop a pizza with chicken fillet balls nestled in the crust.

Pizza Hut Middle East doesn't provide any nutrition facts for its new royal pizzas, but chances are the calorie-counts are quite high.  A plain cheeseburger from McDonald's has about 300 calories with 12 grams of fat.  That, combined with the 265 calories (15 g of fat) in a regular slice of plain stuffed crust, makes for close to 600 calories per slice.

Pizza Hut's Hot Dog Stuffed Crust

Estimated 450 calories per slice

Estimated 26 grams fat per slice

Combining two staples of American food culture, Pizza Hut announced its new Hot Dog Stuffed Crust available for delivery in the U.K.  According to the delivery site, the crust consists of a "succulent hot dog sausage" baked inside Pizza Hut's famous stuffed crust.

While there is no nutritional value available for the crust/hot dog hybrid, a regular slice of plain stuffed crust pizza contains 265 calories with 11.6 g of fat and a standard ball park hot dog has 180 calories with 15 g of fat.  But beware!  Only the large, 14-inch pizza is available for delivery - making it extra tempting for people to have more than one slice.

850 calories

20 g fat

The saying goes, bigger is better.

Two fast-food chain restaurants, Carl’s Jr. in Southern California and Hardee’s in Indiana are promoting a new kind of sandwich – a 12-inch cheeseburger.

The sandwich, priced at $4.50, is served on a white sub roll and has three pieces of meat, three slices of cheese, lettuce and tomato.

But beyond the sandwich’s cost comes a heftier price tag of calories and fat.

Can’t find this super-sized treat in your area? Not to worry, if the sandwich is a success in the two testing markets, it will be sold across the country.

This “personal” pizza is anything but personal. Even if you shared it with your friends at Uno Chicago Grill, it is not exactly the healthiest choice. Not to mention that all the sodium will leave you so thirsty, you’ll surely be guzzling refills of soda to wash down all the greasy goodness.
