Drat. Count me among the staffers here who said “Yeah!” when the sweet-salty-savory news broke. Since NPR wasn’t popping for a road trip, I had to turn to Sam Bradley, a 27-year-old Nashville resident I found on Twitter, for confirmation. She had already trundled over to her local Burger King to check it out.

Bradley wasn’t wowed by the two whole pieces of bacon poked into the ice cream. “If they chopped and mixed it in, it would be better,” she reported. “But over all I would say it’s a success.”
