This isn’t the first black burger from Burger King. They released one as a “Darth Vader Burger” to promote Star Wars in the past. However, this time the black cheese is what really makes it so visually striking.
BK used squid ink and bamboo charcoal to achieve the black color of the bun, cheese and sauce.
There are two black burgers that will be available. The KURO Pearl (whopper, black pepper on a black bun, black sauce, & black cheese) for $4.49 & The KURO Diamond (the same just with lettuce, tomato and white mayo) for $6.49.
So far the burger has yet to be released, but it’s generating quite a buzz online. Starting next week the burgers go on sale in Japan and will be available through November. Will this hype turn into Apple lines at BK in Japan? We will see.
