Burger King Whopper Wine, a dating app for bacon lovers and more food news you need to read

At SheKnows Food, we spend a lot of time reading about — you guessed it — food (and drinks too!). And we’ve come across some stories that are too good to not share. Here are the food items from the week that you don’t want to miss.

1. Whopper Wine makes us wish we lived in Spain

Burger King is celebrating its 40-year anniversary of being in Spain with a very limited-edition wine. Whopper Wine, to be exact. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you roll) it isn't made with actual Whoppers but aged in flame-grilled wood barrels to mimic the charbroiled taste of the iconic burger. Only 40 lucky winners will score a bottle, based on a photo submission contest. Who's moving to Spain? — Creativity

2. Pizza for dessert

Sometimes you just need more pizza in your day. Enter pizza ice cream. Have a slice for dinner and a scoop for dessert. Crust lovers won't be totally satisfied with the frozen treat, but toppings junkies will love the mascarpone and olive oil ice cream with sun-dried tomatoes and basil. It probably doesn't hold up for delivery, though. Get your hands on it at Coolhaus in Los Angeles. — Eater

3. Oscar Mayer wants you to "find your bacon lover"

There's a dating site for everyone, as proven by Sizzl, the new Oscar Mayer app that matches fellow bacon lovers according to how much "sizzle" you give a prospective mate. Sound like a joke? It's not. The Sizzl FAQs assuages that doubt with an homage to Seinfeld: "Yes. It’s real, and it’s incredible." There is some heavy Oscar Mayer promo going on, but hey, it's their app, and they can do what they want, including leave Android users out of the fun; it's only available for iOS. Now go find your bacon lover. — CNET

If you've got a hankering for a ghost chili burrito and the desire to eat it in under three minutes and 23 seconds, you're going to want to know where you can go to accomplish that task and get a year's worth of free burritos. (It's Allan's Authentic Mexican Restaurant in Oregon, should that sound like something you'd want to do.) Find that, plus 49 more food challenges across the country on this awesome interactive map. Road trip, anyone? — Los Angeles Times

5. For the brunch crowd

Everyone loves brunch. And what's not to love? There are bloody marys, mimosas, Irish coffee... Oh, and food too. If you're going for the food, and you live in New York, you're going to want to know about these new brunch spots. Check them out before they're so popular you'll have to wait an hour for your cocktail waffles. — Grub Street
