Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Burger King Luxury Summer Berry Burst Ice Cream Confirmed sighting: Burger King Luxury Summer Berry Burst Ice Cream
Posted: 17:27 Thu 19-Jun-2008. Price: 1.29. Location: Wigan. Nutritional unusualness: "Luxury berry compote drizzled on rich dairy ice cream".
"Wes Jones" reports: Burger King's new flavour "Fusion" Ice Cream. Unlike other Fusions, which include some form of cake or biscuit, this contains simply Ice Cream and Berry Burst sauce. The sauce contains real pieces of Redcurrants, Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries and Blackcurrants, with the actual sauce being a mixture of all these flavours. Be careful with this one as, although there is fruit contained within, it has a high sugar amount in there (I don't know the exact amount). Also, the sauce itself tends to go everywhere, as it is quite watery, and makes quite a sticky mess. The sauce itself tastes quite rich and fruity (evidenced by the fruit, I think), and goes well with Burger King's ice cream.

...And welcome back to our regular BK desserts commentator (though no word on their new-ish Double Chocolate Fudge Cake Fusion, "Wes"?) In other fairly-fresh fast foods: with the possible exception of the spicy SunBlush tomato sauce on the California Classic, there wasn't much to distinguish this year's McDonald's Great Tastes Of America range from the one they trotted out last October - if you want a really meaty sandwich, it's almost worth making the pilgrimage to the numerous - but often shut - London outlets of Fuzzy's Grub. Speaking of which, I finally made it to the Marble Arch KFC before 10.30am to be greeted by this near-American array of chicken-free breakfast options - the AM Twister was great value for 1.79, though why is it that fast food breakfasts always seem much cheaper than meals sold later in the day?

Comment: I'm glad you've pointed out that they're always shut. I've been trying to gave a Fuzzy's for months now, but unless you're working in the City, and so around at lunch time, you've got no chance.

Comment: no kidding, the website says the one near St Pauls (22 Carter Lane) is open 9:00am till 4:30pm at Weekends - well, it wasn't on the Saturday I trekked all the way over there (though the St James' one is worth a diversion if you're ever in the Piccadilly area during the week)

Comment: Whoops! I appear to have forgotten all about the double chocolate fudge cake ice cream - even though I make it every day I'm working.

Comment: Just eaten a Double Chocolate Fudge Cake Fusion. Fudge cake pieces are 1cm cubes and have a nice, rich chocolate taste. Chocolate fudge sauce is very tasty and when mixed turns the white ice cream a shade of light brown. I may have had mine made by someone who was generous with the cake pieces, but there were loads of them! Very satisfying.

Also, if you have a Bite card (gets you 20% off food at stations)only 79p.
