Earlier this month we posted the about those black cheeseburgers from Burger King in Japan, Turns out they look much, much worse in real life.
The Kuro Burger has been a staple on the fast food giant’s Japanese menu since 2012, but only this month did they add black cheese as an ingredient. The bun and cheese are both colored with charcoal to create the err, questionable dark and vampy overall look.
Since the launch, Japanese diners have taken to social media to show the world what the Kuro actually looks like. Because Burger King’s glossy re-touched image wasn’t bad enough. Here is what people are posting in Twitter:
