The two burgers, the plain “Kuro Pearl” and the topping heavy “Kuro Diamond” both feature buns and cheese blackened by a bamboo wood fire. The sauce also includes a healthy dose of black squid ink. Kuro means black in Japanese.
Burgers with black buns were first introduced for a limited time by the chain in 2012 and became a hit, outselling all other new products that Burger King offered during the year, according to the company. They were also available for a limited time in 2013.
The Pearl and Diamond are the first to include blackened cheese and sauce. They will be available until early November, according to the company.
