Well folks, I've seen it all! Driving down the road my 9 year old yells mom there's a Halloween Hamburger!! I just laughed and asked if she was making fun of me. My family always harass' me lovingly about my love of all things spooky. Anyway, she swears she's not tricking me so I turn around and go back. Sure enough!!! Halloween Hamburger haha....at first I thought this was ridiculous but I can't very well say I'm the Wueen of Halloween and not at least try it haha....so I got a combo. The bread is black. I mean solid dense black. Tastes the same but the texture isn't the same. I thought you guys would enjoy :)

Supposed to have A1 in the bun itself, could you taste a difference?

they've had black bun whoppers in Japan for a while...it's colored wiht squid ink. I am gonna have to try one just so i can say i did.
I read that they don't use squid ink for the buns here in the US. It hasn't come out what gives them the blackened color for our version. Still... it looks really cool!

Justin they say the bun has A1 sauce baked into the bun but that color definitely comes from lots of food dye!!!

It tastes just like a regular whopper with just a little tiny difference, I didn't think it tasted too different from the original...

And I agree when I unwrapped it I thought it was no where near as pretty as the one in the ad lol!!!!

Ironically I saw the BK marquee advertising this yesterday on my way to my Weight Watcher meeting! I have no intention of trying it (just because my body doesn't agree with the amount of sodium in their stuff - I couldn't get my rings off after eating a SALAD!!!) but I wanted to see what other people thought of it.

The real thing is never as pretty as the sign. Bummer.

Tried it and posted about it yesterday in the Halloween commercials thread so won't repost my comments. I will add though that in addition to the A1 sauce in the bun to make it black I'm pretty sure it must have a ton of dark green food dye. Why do I think so? See what passes out...kind of reminds me of all the extra red dyes that went into some cereal that alarmed mom's who's kids had consumed the cereal for breakfast. This was a big story that made the news a few years back as some mom's in that case rushed their kids to the hospital only to find out it wasn't blood but the cereal coloring. :D

Thanks for the warning...I want to try one of these in the next couple of weeks.

A friend of mine used to throw all kinds of trash on the driver's side floorboard of his car. One time there was a half-eaten Big Mac down there and it looked about like that Whopper. Ewww......

I would try one, though.

GOS I know exactly what you are talking about.... Lots & lots of green dye LOL!!! ;)
ROTFLOL. Yeah I wasn't sure if I should mention it or how to mention it but it was the only thing I figured I ate recently that could be the culprit...just not sure how to phrase it on here when I decided to post. I read your first post about lots of food dye to get the dark bun color and thought we might be talking about the same thing... Wonder if this will make the news too LOL.
