Burger King just launched it’s upcoming Halloween burger. Which includes A1 steaksauce. What could go wrong after such a great decision! Oh yea, they colored the bun black.
So, do #BlackBunsMatter ? Apparently it’s the A1 sauce that is baked into the bun that turns it black, but you can’t just instantly not think they’re serving you a burnt bun with a few sesame seeds sprinkler on top.
The Halloween Whopper has 710 calories and 43 grams of fat, which makes the non-black Whopper look relatively slim, with its 650 calories and 37 grams of fat.
If that’s not artery clogging or festive enough, customers can wash the burger down with a drink that’s tailored specifically for the fall: the 890-calorie 20-oz. Pumpkin Spice Oreo Shake, with 120 grams of sugar and 24 grams of fat.
Burger King has already been selling colored Whoppers in Japan. As part of a summertime promotion, the chain sold “samurai burgers” with red or black buns. But seriously, the red looks not much better than the black.
Let’s just say this year I think I’m going to stick to eating all the candy the trick or treater’s don’t take, instead of taking my chance with a burnt… I mean colored bun.
