Is The New Black Whopper Turning America's Poop Green?
Burger King has been making headlines in the way of fast food with the release of their limited edition Halloween Whopper. Available for the month of October, its black bun is reminiscent of the Black Whopper previously sold in Japan, except for one major difference.

It makes your poop green. Bright green.

Whopper fans have been taking to social media to alert friends, family, and all followers in between about the bizarre side effect the burger's been making in the bathroom - so much so that some of the nation's top press outlets have had no choice but to cover this mysterious (albeit a bit crude) phenomenon.

So what's in these burger buns?

Well, when the Black Whopper was released in Japan, the bun was dyed with squid ink, a natural dye that changes the color of food without affecting the flavor. But - since that would probably freak out 80% of U.S. Whopper eaters - instead, the bun of the new Halloween Burger is black from a heapload of green and blue food dyes.

Hence the poop.

So do you think the green poop phenomenon will cause Halloween Whopper sales to drop? Or would you still want to try the burger anyway?

Also, let me know if you've ever tried it! I'm really curious as to how it tastes.

What freaks me out the most is the heapload of green and blue food dyes.... 0_O I would eat the one from Japan rather than the U.S version~

I would have tried it if it was squid ink, the fact that it's food dye means I'd be staying as far away from it as possible...not that it really matters, as far as I know it's not available in Australia anyway :)

while having green poop would be kind of cool I wouldn't want to eat all that dye. if it was the squid ink I would have tried it. People here need to get over themselves. you are taking something much worse because the other thing sounds weird
