Just when you thought Burger King Japan couldn’t get any crazier with their color choices (who could forget that all-black cheeseburger?), the chain announced today in a press release that they will release an all-red Aka Samurai chicken sandwich and Samurai beef burger, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The Aka (“Red”) sandwiches are made with their respective meats and topped with a red-hot sauce made of miso and hot pepper. They’re completed with, of course, red buns and cheese. The all-red sandwiches — their color comes from tomato powder — will be available starting July 3. The Samurai chicken is 540 yen, or about $4.40, and the Samurai beef is 690 yen, which is around $5.60.
And those all-black burgers we mentioned earlier? Burger King Japan is releasing a 2.0 version called the Kuro Shogun on August 21. The Kuro (“Black”) burger will contain deep-fried eggplant, along with a black bun, sauce, and cheese.
As terrifying as they look, the burgers must taste good (or just intrigue a lot of people) if Burger King Japan is coming up with more combinations. We’ll be on the lookout for more colors.
