Burger King's Whopper Will Have Black Burger Buns For Halloween Season


Burger King comes up with some pretty interesting fast food inventions.

Remember when we showed you those AKA Samurai burgers sold at Burger King restaurants in Japan? Well, it turns out Japan isn't the only place where Burger King experiments with the color of its buns.

That's right. In honor of Halloween, the fast food chain will offer a special hamburger with black buns called a "Halloween Whopper."

About a year ago in Japan, Burger King tested out a similar-looking burger made with squid ink and bamboo charcoal.

However, you'll be glad to know the company made some modifications to the recipe for the US edition. Apparently, baking A1 Steak Sauce directly into the bread gives the bun a distinct black appearance, so you won't find any ink in your Halloween Whopper.

Burger King is set to launch this spooky snack at the end of September (though it appears some people already got some), so it won't be long before you can get your hands on these Halloween treats.

Behold, Burger King's newest Frankenfood invention...

...the "Halloween Whopper."

This strange-looking sandwich features a burger topped with cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, mayonnaise, pickles, onions and A1 Steak Sauce...

...nestled between a spooky pair of black buns guaranteed to get you in the Halloween spirit.

The unique coloring of the buns comes from baking A1 Steak Sauce directly into the bread.

Burger King will begin offering the new item on September 28.

So, if you want to get your hands on these black beauties, you better act fast because they're only around for the Halloween season.
