Would you try a black-bunned burger with black cheese?
Burger King recently released a burger in Japan that is just that.
Called the “Kuro Burger,” which translates to “black burger” in Japanese, it features several unique ingredients.
The bun is made from bamboo charcoal mixed into the dough to give it the black color.
The sauce is a Black Flavored Ketchup, which is traditional ketchup blended with garlic, special seasoning, and squid ink.
And, of course, a slice of black cheese, which is reportedly made with smoked charcoal.
To make these components of the burger look darker, it features a paprika-flavored beef patty that has a slightly lighter color than normal patties.
The burger is being released to celebrate Burger King’s 5-year anniversary in Japan.
Former Merritt Island resident Daniel Noble, who now lives and works in Japan, recently reviewed the burger on his Facebook page, and shared his findings with FLORIDA TODAY.
The concoction may have turned his teeth black, but after his first bite he said: “has a good taste. Kind of tangy. I recommend it.”
