Taste-testing Burger King’s Halloween-themed black Whopper

Burger King’s northern Europe managing director Matthew Bresnahan said: “The introduction of the black burger in Japan created a lot of excitement for Burger King fans”.


Social media caught fire with the announcement, with United Kingdom consumers left disappointed after it emerged the food item would ONLY be on American menus.

After reading several reports of the odd reaction to eating the burger, TheBlaze contacted both Burger King and the makers of A.1., the Kraft Heinz company for comment.

It’s spooky alright: The burger’s bun is a mysterious shade of black (apparently, A1 Steak Sauce is “baked in”), especially pronounced with its usual sprinkling of white sesame seeds.

If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll know that they’ve been doing these black burgers in Japan for a while. I will never, ever eat a hamburger served on a bun that looks like it has been burnt.


A red wine – named Whopper Wine, duh – has been launched for a limited time in Spain to celebrate the burger chain’s 40 years in the country.
