Burger King Japan's latest meal is the new black
Assign to Google Classroom
Burger King is offering black burgers in Japan. That's right, a black burger on a black bun. It even has black cheese. Black sauce is included, too.
Last year, Burger King started making the Kuro Ninja. The sandwich added a slice of non-black bacon to the black components. Now Burger King Japan is going black on black. It's called the Kuro Pearl. It and another sandwich, the Black Diamond, were added to menus last week.
HOW DOES IT TASTE?
The black pepper in the patty hits you at the first bite. The Kuro Diamond is juicier. It has extra sauce and mayo.
WHERE CAN YOU GET IT?
The burgers only are available in Japan until November. The Kuro Pearl costs $4.39 and the Kuro Diamond for $6.31. It's not clear why black burgers are a hit in Japan. But the country favors unusual food and drink products. Those include square watermelons and green tea candy bars. There's even ice cucumber Pepsi.
What would it take to get you to eat a black burger on a black bun?
