Burger King Japan announced Wednesday that its popular “black burger” series will return on Sept. 19, 2014 and be blacker than ever. This time, the fast-food chain will introduce two new burgers featuring black buns, black cheese made with bamboo charcoal, and an onion sauce mixed with squid ink. The Kuro (black) Pearl, priced at ¥480, will have a 115-gram patty, black cheese and sauce sandwiched by black buns. The Kuro Diamond, priced at ¥690, is similar but comes with a dash of color in the form of lettuce, tomatoes and onions. Originally launched on a seasonal basis in fall 2012, black burgers are part of the company’s effort to introduce unconventional burgers. It was its best-selling new product in 2012, Tokyo-based Burger King Japan said.
