In this SPECIAL EDITION, Jersey Joe taste tests Burger King’s new Halloween Whopper sandwich. The first ever fast food sandwich with an all black bun in the US.
Specialty hamburgers with black buns have been featured as promotional items at fast food restaurants overseas for years. The first, a Star Wars Darth Vador burger was sold by Quick restaurants in France in 2012. Burger King immediately followed the same year in Japan, with a Premium Kuro Burger (which means Black Burger in English.)
However, the Burger King Halloween Whopper marks the first time a black burger has appeared in the United States. Taco Bell did sell a blackjack, black colored taco shell, back in 2009.
Name: Halloween Whopper
Restaurant: Burger King
Price: $4.99 sandwich only (value meals start at $7.99)
JERSEY JOE RECOMMENDS:
It’s a fun, novelty item for Halloween. Give it a try. I also like the addition of the A-1 sauce, instead of ketchup on a traditional Whopper. A word or warning… the internet rumors are true. Not to be gross, but it does turn an interesting color coming out the other end! You’ll see!
