If Burger King's new 510 calorie, bacon-studded sundae is any indication, people aren't going to stop putting pork in desserts anytime soon. I can't say I necessarily endorse that, though I've certainly contributed to the glut, myself, with a recipe for Bacon-Bourbon Brownies with Pecans in Food & Wine magazine last year.

Sundaes yummy sundaes (just please hold the bacon)

Kate Krader (@kkrader on Twitter) is Food & Wine's restaurant editor. When she tells us where to find our culinary heart's desire, we listen up.

Compared to the fast-paced world of juicing and organic chocolate, not much happens in the land of ice cream sundaes. There are exceptions, like when Burger King sticks a couple strips of bacon in a chocolate-and-caramel sundae and starts test-marketing bacon sundaes around Nashville.
 
Personally, I’m less cutting-edge than the people at Tennessee BKs. And if I decide I need more fat and calories in my sundae, it’s going to come in the form of a brownie base, or more hot fudge, not bacon.

For those like me, who live in an idyllic sundae past and aren’t ready to mash up their charcuterie plates with their vanilla ice cream, the following are some places to check out. Especially if you don’t want your dog to feel left out when you dig into your ice cream.

Free ice cream - how cool is that?

In celebration of their 34 years of business, on April 3, Ben & Jerry's Scoop Shops around the globe will serve up complimentary cones from noon to 8:00 pm.

Founders Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield began the Free Cone Day tradition as a staff and customer thank you on the first anniversary of their Burlington, Vermont, store in 1979. The company was acquired by Unilever in 2000, but the custom remained.

The company is expected to give away more than 1 million cones of ice cream or Greek frozen yogurt worldwide during the event. Most Scoop Shops will partner with a local charity to raise money and awareness for the cause of their choice.

The Vintage Cookbook Vault highlights recipes from my insane stash of books and pamphlets from the early 20th century onward. It's a semi-regular thing, as is the Reader Challenge.

When folks are using sidewalks as griddles and baking biscuits in their cars, you know you've got a heat wave on your (sweaty) hands. Take a tip from the folks at Knox who published "Dainty Desserts for Dainty People" way back in 1915. They didn't need any newfangled plug-in freezers or schmancy ice cream gizmos to keep cool in the middle of a blistering summer - just a block of ice in a chest, or crushed ice mixed with rock salt.

Where'd the ice come from without a home freezer? Let's not get too hung up on the details (a strapping delivery gent would come around with a wagon full of blocks and some tongs) when there are brains to be frozen and tongues to be tantalized.

Here's your assignment, should you choose to accept it.

Feeling hot and chewing cold

Linda Petty is an editor at CNN Living. She likes boxed mixes, tarted-up vegetables, letting produce rot in her crisper, eating breakfast at her desk, raiding your pantry, and ice cream cones.

I sweat a lot for a not-very-skinny girl, and Atlanta summers can be sweltering. They were even hot before some smart aleck weatherman invented the heat index so we could feel hotter than the thermometer reading.

But even before I moved South, I had a habit of chewing on cold things to beat the heat. As a child and even past the point where I was old enough to drive, I would pour grape Kool-Aid into ice-cube trays and freeze it.

Sucking on the purple cubes was a great way to cool off - that is until I overindulged and almost developed frostbite on my tongue.

First of all, there is a big difference between “enjoying” ice cream and “needing” ice cream - so for the sake of time, we will not even discuss the one-person, one-spoon and one-carton method of scarfing down the frozen medicine of your choice.

But during your saner moments – do you prefer your ice cream in a bowl or a cone? Easy question, right?
