It might sound far-fetched, however, the popular food chains, McDonald’s and Burger King are testing the waters with a black bun. Well, this burger is already on the Japanese menu at the McDonald eateries. It is reported that their bun is made from bamboo charcoal. And they even offer black ketchup and black cheese.
Here in the United States, Burger King has sprung on the ‘band wagon’. As such, the burger chain has added the ‘Black Whopper’ to their menu for the Halloween. It has been described as ‘deliciously dark’ and baked with A1 flavor infused in the bun. Just in case you’re counting the calories, you’ll be devouring 710 of them.
Some are asking the question, “Will it excite or scare the customer?” Frankly, I don’t see the hoopla. If you can have white buns, why not black buns? Diners who have consumed the black burgers in Japan have expressed satisfaction.
I’m not a frequent consumer of fast foods, however, once in a while I like to sink my teeth into a good burger. So what if it’s a black bun? I’ve eaten black rice and pasta before and they all tasted delicious. Moreover, I understand that they are loaded with beneficial fibers and other nutrients.
When it comes to food, I’ll try (well, almost) anything. I’m looking forward to run a taste test on that deliciously sinful black whopper. Are you?
