Burger King to Launch Halloween Whopper with Black Buns
Steak sauce in a bun? You officially have our attention.
On Monday, Burger King is launching a special edition Halloween Whopper sandwich, which will be served on “spooky” black buns flavored with A.1. steak sauce.
The seasonal burger is inspired by BK’s “black burger,” which was only ever served in Japan (though raised alarm worldwide).
Aside from the Halloween Whopper’s black bun — which will have a smokey, black pepper flavor from the A.1. steak sauce — the sandwich will have the same ingredients as any other Whopper: beef patty, melted American cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, pickles and onions.
The burger will be available for a limited time nationwide, selling for the suggested price of $4.99.
Will the new Whopper be scary good or just plain scary? We’ll see on Monday.
