We’ve never eaten a burger with a bright red bun before, and we’re not sure if we’re ready to try.

On Tuesday, Burger King announced its latest burger with a gimmicky bun color: “The Angriest Whopper,” which is a follow-up to last year’s “Angry Whopper.” The limited-edition Whopper has hot sauce baked into the bun for added heat, plus fried onion petals, “spicy angry sauce” and jalapenos jammed inside it.

This isn’t the first time BK has fooled around with the sanctity of bun color. In October, they launched the highly spooky Halloween Whopper which had A1 sauce baked into the bun, making them black and Axel Schwan, Burger King’s global chief marketing officer, says the chain is trying to play off the success of that sandwich.

“We’re combining the power of these past hits into a star-studded sandwich we think our guests will unanimously agree is the next must-eat burger,” Schwan said in a statement.

We’re big fans of spicy, but we hope that the new sandwich doesn’t turn our poop any colors that poop isn’t supposed to be. That’s right, we’re throwing some playful shade at the A1 Halloween Whopper, which sent the Internet into a frenzy when people’s poop turned green after eating them.

What terrifies me more is the fact they are trying to say that their sandwich will actually look like that. Usually when I go, I get burger patties halfway off the bun, cause all over the place and its gross. Focus more on good sammys and less on bun color
