[Kicking Back with Jersey Joe] Burger King Halloween Whopper Taste Test

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)




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!

Taco Bell has taken a popular breakfast cereal and turned it into a warm, gooey dessert. So, is it worth you cash? See the unexpected surprise Jersey Joe got when he ordered his.

Name: Cap’n Crunch Bites

What: dessert menu item

Where sold: Taco Bell restaurantsIMG_7046.MOV.00_00_07_02.Still001


These are great!  Very succulent!  Why not give them a try?

The price structure is very affordable to add on as a menu item.  I spent $1.89 for 4.  They are sold in packs of 2, 4, or 6.   They are kind of like eating a bowl of cereal.  You can definitely taste the fruity Cap’n Crunch in concert with the warm, icing filling is a perfect match.

I just wish they would have remembered mine with my order… and at least offered me something for a second wait in line for them.
