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.


The black pepper in the patty hits you at the first bite. The Kuro Diamond is juicier. It has extra sauce and mayo.


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?

    That is just gross. Why would anyone ever want to eat something that is black. It looks like it was burnt by a forest fire, except 10 times worse. Also what kind of sauce is black? Ash mustard? And the black cheese just screams its stale.... 1,000 years stale. It's like the cheese in DIARY OF A WIMPY KID. Except this wasn't found on the floor, and it's supposed to be black. I don't get why people would eat this kind of food. So it looks cool (actually it looks pretty gross to me), That changes what it will taste like. If Burger King wants more people in their restaurants, they should take this burger away.
