Earlier this summer, I visited Burger King more times than I did in the entire year prior. On my quest for Sweet Potato Fries, the new menu and a one time trial of the Bacon Sundae, me and the King were really chilling. Since then? I haven’t been back. It’s not that I don’t like the King, it’s just that I really don’t eat a whole lot of fast food. On one of my visits, I decided to try another new item so that I could review it here. So, even though I tried this item 2 months back, we will review it now. The Oreo Sundae from Burger King. Which, I would like to take the time to rename as: Oreo Dusting.
What is an Oreo Dusting you may ask? It is when you advertise ‘Oreo’ in the name of a product and then only feature one or two broken up Oreo’s…within the entire product. So is the case with the Oreo Sundae. Now, I will say this – this may have been a one time Dusting. As we all know, Fast Food is not always consistent so, this may be the case for this sucker. Either way, the one time I tried it, it was indeed an Oreo Dusting. Okay, enough of this.
I ordered my Oreo
Dusting Sundae from the drive-thru and at first glance, it looked good. That was, until I really took a good look at it. While the cup was full of plenty of ice cream & a good amount of chocolate fudge, the Oreo’s only dusted the top. Without another thought on it, I began to eat. The first few bites were really great – a lovely mixture of crunchy Oreo pieces, savory chocolate fudge and smooth vanilla ice cream, danced around my taste buds. I appreciated how each element of this sundae really spoke for itself, and one was not overpowered by another. After these first few blissful bites, I ran into a huge section of just plain vanilla ice cream.
As far as fast food soft serve ice cream goes, I think Burger King really knocks it out of the park. The handful of times I have had their ice cream, I have really enjoyed it. The ice cream is very smooth and in no way icy. Mix in the smoothness with the simple, pure vanilla flavor – home run. It would have been pretty great to collide with a layer of Oreo pieces mid-way through my journey of ice cream but, alas that was not so. After the journey of ice cream, we hit another (huge, I may add) layer of chocolate fudge. This fudge had a bit of warmth to it and was pretty good. I would say this is a perfect mix of chocolate sauce & hot fudge. While it is not as artificial tasting as chocolate sauce, it is also not as thick as hot fudge. The end product is still good – savory fudgey flavor and a semi-thick consistency. If hot fudge isn’t available, I will take this chocolate fudge anytime.
I had no problem finishing up my Oreo Sundae and, overall, I did indeed enjoy it. I realize it is not meant to be a Blizzard nor is Burger King a self-serve fro-yo location where I can put heaps of Oreo’s on my ice cream. Burger King is a fast food location where one day something is good and another day, well not so good. The 3 basic ingredients of this sundae, all work together really well and taste quite yummy. While I will not seek out the BK Oreo Sundae, I can’t say I would never have it again. If I am in the mood for a sundae, and I am at BK, I will have no problem ordering this. And perhaps, on that day & at that location, an Oreo Sundae, rather than an Oreo Dusting, will come through my window.
