Burger King Launches Halloween Whopper with Black Bun

Apparently the Super Blood Moon left a little present behind. Burger King announced it will start selling a Halloween-themed burger with a black bun.

The A.1. Halloween Whopper Sandwich has the famous steak sauce baked into its bun, giving it both a black hue and a black pepper flavor. The sauce will also dress the burgers.

Burger King has sold a similar burger in Japan that drew attention online. That instead used squid ink and bamboo charcoal.

"We tailored the flavor of the black bun to the American palate with A.1. sauce, a flavor this country loves, and we’re delivering it in a way that’s never been done before by baking it into the bun," said Burger King Chief Marketing Officer Eric Hirschhorn in a press release. "It may look Japanese but it tastes like America.”

The spooky meat treat goes on sale today for $4.99 and will be available for a limited time.
