Bacon might be the least “ninja” ingredient out there. Aside from being bright-ass red, its scent alone has the power to send every fat kid (or fat kid at heart) running from within at least a three mile radius. Still, we wouldn’t want our ninja burgers made any other way.
Starting October 25, Burger King Japan is rolling out a black-bunned hamburger called the “Black Ninja.” Like most of the country’s other chromatically-challenged eats, the BN gets its hue from the bamboo charcoal used to make it, which in this case, also happens to impart a nice smoky smell. But the weirdness doesn’t stop there.
Nope. Because apparently the “ninja” theme here isn’t so much “sneaky” as “hidden in plain sight,” the Black Ninja comes fully loaded with a Whopper patty, fresh onions, lettuce, mayonnaise, hash browns, and a huge hulking slab of – you guessed it – BERCERN.
[Insert joke about high blood pressure being the REAL sneaky killer, here]
