Burger King is currently celebrating their 5th year in Japan.  But in an already saturated fast food market the famous American chain is a little late to the game.

So, in an effort to truly stand out from the crowd, Burger King Japan has designed fast food’s first black hamburger.  Dubbed the Kuro Burger (lit. Black Burger), it will go on sale for a limited time starting 28 September.

Why are they saying 5th year? There were Burger Kings here when I came here 14 years ago. They closed all of their shops in Japan for a few years... then came back... o.O

I predict this will be a Whopper of a FAILURE. It looks disgusting.

Opinions vary. When I was in College the local Burger King would have $0.50 Whopper night, and I'd buy a few bucks' worth, keep 'em in the fridge, and eat 'em cold as a snack.

If they made a Hello Kitty burger it’d probably sell more than this.

There’s a reason most food isn’t black. And it ain’t racist.

Looks like my wife’s cooking. At my house we know when it is time to eat because the smoke alarm goes off.

One of the joys of aging, is to escape the tyranny of the young male appetite.

It is wonderful to enjoy 2 whoppers and a coke as a generous meal rather than as a mere snack.

If the burger was spiced differently from the normal way, a pumpernickle bun could be interesting.

Well, that might be almost as good as the “pulled socialist” BBQ sandwiches I suggested on another thread.

Hell, all the burger chains in the U.S. already have black burgers in the U.S., the patties that is. They cook the patties so long that they would shatter if you dropped one on the floor. Totally inedible. And all because the chains have no confidence that they can handle hamburger well enough to keep from killing their customers with E. Coli. Their solution? Cook those suckers until their sterile! My solution? Buy chuck on sale at Safeway, have them grind it for me, and come home and sear it on the barbie!

They must be trying to come up with a burger that Moochel Obummer can’t complain about.

Absolutely. Cold pizza makes a great breakfast.
