Burger King Japan first tested “Black Burgers” about two years ago, so when I saw their press release about another go-round starting next week, I didn’t think it was even worth mentioning. Been there, done that, right?
Boy, was I wrong!
Just saw this story mentioned on NBC! A Japanese gimmick burger on national news?! (So many of you may have already seen this by now.)
I guess what’s different this time around is the black cheese.
Yes, black cheese!
Made with the same bamboo charcoal they use to color the buns, supposedly.
These new versions also are also topped with a squid ink and garlic sauce.
The patties are made with copious amounts of black pepper, just like last time.
The “Black Pearl” comes plain for maximum blackness. It’ll set you back about five bucks.
The “Black Diamond” is topped with lettuce, onion, tomato and mayo to help make you feel healthier downing one. It’s also about two dollars more.
On sale September 19th nationwide.
