    That is disgusting and I am glad I will never have the privilege of eating it.

    Reminds of the shit they had in France's Quick fast food chains. Darth Vader and Yoda burgers.

    Someone must have burnt the buns, thought that was a good idea, and decided to do it again...

    Bamboo charcoal in the dough for the bun, and squid ink in the ketchup.

    Yeah, no.

    Japan? Maybe.

    Why are people so ape about the food colouring which will more than likely have zero effect on the intended flavour?

    We appear to have no problems eating sweets in the colours of the rainbow, we drink sodas that come in every colour imaginable - clear or not clear as well, and we're going to be picky about a burger that's *meant* to be gimmicky?

    Besides, this is Japan. If you think this is silly, you should look at their lines of sodas over the years. Even big name brands like Pepsi did some crazy stuff over the years.

    I'd personally try it because it's a novelty item, I don't see anything wrong with it being black - it's meant to stand out.

    Nope.
    Assuming the color additives don't add anything negative to the taste, I'd try it just to say I did.

    Between insane and insecure
    Is there a point to changing the colors of the buns? It doesn't change the flavor.

    Wait...yeah..i'll reconsider, out of curiosity i'd try it. I remember trying purple ketchup back in the day -i think there were other colors as well- and at first i thought it was going to taste like nyquil+sugar..and it was nothing shocking. That was neat!

    Guys and girls, i think we need more colors in life nowadays. Everything is just too black, white, grey, and silver.
    Lets bring back colored ketchup, fire-red/blue/golden pepsi, etc

    It's merely a burger that's supposed to celebrate the chain's anniversary - it's a limited time special item. A gimmick. It's not put on the menu for good.

    This is Japan we're talking about - they could've come up with all sorts of nasty, gross stuff to put in there, but no. It's your average burger that's been coloured black. It may not look appetizing, but I don't think it's even supposed to. It's just a gimmick. ;)
