Pulled pork sundaes have arrived whether you like it or not

Food News Roundup: Get George Clooney's Tequila, Harlem Gets Sriracha Donut

The South is alive and kickin' as evidenced by TGI Friday's new menu roll-out.

The item causing the most commotion? The pulled pork sundae, which, by the sounds of it, might just have the makings to ruin dessert forever.

The layered concoction, which comes served in a traditional sundae glass, isn't exactly the sweet and salty monstrosity you're imagining, however.

The unusual dish swaps mashed potatoes for ice cream, and is topped with crispy bacon and cheese instead of chocolate, making it a savory treat they deemed appropriate for the appetizer menu.

According to TGI Friday's UK head chef Terry McDowell, "Friday's food is all about dishes with big personality, and the new menu couldn't reflect this more for our guests."

Does this sound like the out-of-the-box hybrid you've been dreaming of? If you're outside of the UK, unfortunately you'll just have to wait, as it's only currently available in select London locations.
