Burger King franchise in Japan is known to be creative with their food offerings and their latest invention is no exemption.
Burger King is rolling out the "Black Ninja Bacon Burger" in stores on Oct. 25, according to Bubble News. The "Black Ninja Bacon Burger" features a black bun made of bamboo charcoal, burger, hashbrown, bacon, lettuce, onions, ketchup and mayonnaise. Although it's unclear what bamboo charcoal, it looks interesting.
The burger, called the Kuro Ninja in Japan, will retail for ¥680 ($6.93). Burger King has made a larger push in Japan by increasing its store count. Burger King added 20 stores in Japan in 2012, bringing the total to 64.
Burger King made headlines earlier this year after rolling out a "Hands Free Whopper Holder" to commemorate its 50th anniversary in Puerto Rico. The purpose for this invention, which only 50 items were made and given out randomly, was to help busy people on the go eat their burgers while working. It's essentially an extra set of arms, if you will. Check out the video here.
