Denny’s introduces ‘Baconalia’ menu featuring Maple Bacon Sundae

National restaurant chain Denny’s is doing its best to reverse the goodwill of switching to cage-free eggs and offering Amy’s Veggie Burgers by jumping on the ridiculous baconize everything bandwagon with its new “Baconalia” menu.

The “always open” breakfast diner is providing its customers the opportunity to enjoy pork belly products ranging from Bacon Meatloaf to even a Maple Bacon Sundae.

According to Denny’s:

Baconalia! is set to send bacon lovers rejoicing with a sizzling celebration in honor of America’s love affair with bacon. The new menu boasts a medley of both traditional bacon favorites, such as Bacon Meatloaf, to more unconventional items such as the Maple Bacon Sundae – a classic ice cream sundae piled high with maple-flavored syrup and a generous sprinkling of hickory-smoked bacon – yes, Denny’s really did put bacon in everything.

And thanks to the efforts of establishments like Denny’s more than 112 million pigs are killed per year in the U.S. for food consumption. Do you call that a “love affair?”

Ah the feel good vibes we had for Denny's --albeit few to begin with-- are definitely waning.
