Burger King in Japan has come up with a new creative addition to it's burger family with its "Premium Kuro Burger." The burger features a black burger that is colored with bamboo charcoal mixed into the dough. The ketchup is flavored with squid ink to create a black color as well.
The rest of the burger are standard to Burger King with a beef patty, tomato, onion, lettuce pickles, onion and mayonnaise.
"kuro" literally means black and now for 790 yen hungry patrons can purchase the burger with a drink and fries for a limited time. The burger will debut on Sept. 28 in commemoration of its five year anniversary in Japan.
Earlier this month McDonalds in China featured black and white yin and yang burgers on their menu. One burger had a white bun with chicken the other had a black bun, both with different colored sesame seeds.
So we know that the black burger looks different, but how does it taste? According to Kokatu.com, Japanese website Gigazine tried it out and said, "Certainly, the black appearance makes a big impact," noted Gigazine, "but the taste was surprisingly traditional."
Burgerbusiness.com reported that interesting items on Burger King Japan's menu have inculdedi n the past, the Meat Monster Whopper, the Pizza-Size Burger, mini spam burgers and a burger with grilled apples called the BK Ringo.
