(Best Syndication News) - Burger King is offering, for a limited time, a Bacon Sundae Dessert on their menu at restaurants nationwide. The sweet and salty treat ventures away from the common place of dessert when they stick a piece of bacon in it.

The sundae’s foundation is a soft serve vanilla ice cream. They add chocolate fudge and caramel and ad a thick slice of hardwood smoked bacon. The treat is very sweet, and is something to enjoy if you can afford the extra 510 calories. There is 18 grams of fat (10 grams saturated fat), 15 grams of protein, 75 grams of carbohydrates (61 grams of sugar), 40 mg cholesterol, and 670 mg of sodium.

Also recently added is a Memphis BBQ pulled pork sandwich and sweet potato French fries. These too are for a limited time.

(Best Syndication News) - There seems to be a day to commemorate everything – including donuts. June 1, 2012 is National Donut Day. What does this mean? This might mean a free donut at some retailers around the country. Every first Friday of June has been designated as National Donut Day. Donuts is also spelled as doughnuts, but either way they are a popular treat.

The National Donut Day goes back to 1938, when the The Salvation Army in Chicago did a fundraiser with the bakery food. The donuts were the chosen product because of the successful reception of treats that were given out to military men in World War I by Salvation Army volunteers. The Salvation Army still celebrates National Donut Day in areas by handing out donuts and coffee on this day.

On Tuesday, animal service officers set traps at Frances E. Willard Intermediate School and El Sol Science and Arts Academy to catch the stray cats. The traps were provided by O.C. Vector Control and they have been out in the neighborhoods informing residents of the potential typhus problem. The city officials are testing the fleas found on the cats for typhus.
