Lotteria's new Halloween cheeseburger has a big glop of purple sauce and a giant strip of bacon meant to look like a monster's lolling tongue. 

You can always trust Japanese burger chain Lotteria to deliver with the weird burgers, and this year’s Halloween special is not kidding around. The “Purple Magic Bacon Double Excellent Cheeseburger” is topped with purple sauce and comes in a coffin-shaped purple box, which is just right for accommodating a big strip of bacon meant to look like a lolling tongue.

According to Rocket News 24, the Halloween burger will be available from October 6 to October 31 for about $8, including fries. It has two beef patties, two slices with cheese, a huge piece of smoked bacon meant to give it a “monster-like” look, and a glop of purple sauce on top.

The purple sauce seems questionable, but actually it’s just the chain’s regular cheese sauce, made purple with the addition of some powdered purple potato.

The vampire-themed packaging and food styling make it look like a monstrous Halloween burger, but really it’s just a double cheeseburger with a big piece of bacon, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
