Halloween Whopper Embraces the Dark
Halloween Whopper Embraces the Dark

Black bun leaves some freaked out.

Burger King is going to the dark side.

The A.1. Halloween Whopper has A.1. flavor baked into the black bun, which is what accounts for the coloring, the franchise company says. The flame-grilled beef is topped with American cheese, tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, mayonnaise, A.1. sauce, pickles and onions on a black sesame seed bun.

Burger King already has been selling colorful Whoppers in Japan. As part of a summertime promotion, “samurai burgers” with red or black buns were offered. In the U.S., the black Whopper has 710 calories, 43 grams of fat and 1.5 grams of trans fat.

Burger King customers can wash the burger down with an autumnal drink: the 890-calorie 20-oz. Pumpkin Spice Oreo Shake, with 120 grams of sugar and 24 grams of fat. 

There allegedly are some unsavory residual effects from the new Whooper, which Burger King likely isn't pleased to hear. People have been tweeting that the black bun is turning their feces green.
