Burger King’s Black-Bunned Halloween Whopper May Turn Your Poop Green
Last year, Burger King Japan released a crazy black burger, and despite how gross it sounded (the buns and cheese both got their color after being smoked with bamboo charcoal, and the sauce was made with onion, garlic and squid ink), it caused quite a commotion.
Now BK has brought a variation of that to the US, in the form of the A1 Halloween Whopper Sandwich. The sandwich is a ¼ pound of savory flame-grilled beef topped with melted American cheese, ripe tomatoes, crisp iceberg lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, A1 Thick and Hearty Sauce, crunchy pickles, and sliced white onions on a soft sesame seed bun with A1 flavor baked into the bun.
Sounds pretty good, right? Well, some Burger King patrons who’ve tried the Black Whopper say it goes in one color.. and comes out another! And it’s now trending on Twitter, with the #GreenPoop hashtag.
Here are a few gems we came across:

Took like three days for my poop to stop being green, but was totally worth it, @BurgerKing
