More unusual burgers…

18 Jun

A few years ago, Burger King Japan offered a black burger…even the bread cheese were black!
(Click here to see my post about it).

And then, last year, McDonalds Japan decided to get in the game.
They offered a pink Sakura Teriyaki & Egg Burger in April, and their own black burger in October.

And now, Burger King Japan has decided to offer new, unusually-colored burgers this summer (2015).

From July 3rd (until sometime in August), they will offer two new spicy red sandwiches…even the cheese and buns are red!

The "Aka (Red) Samurai Beef"

The “Aka (Red) Samurai Beef”

The “Aka (Red) Samurai Chicken”

And then, for a limited-time from August 21st, Burger King Japan will offer two new black sandwiches with black cheese and buns…but different from the ones they offered a few years back.

The "Kuro (Black) Shogun" burger with black cheese and eggplants.

Regular RocketNews24 readers will no doubt already be aware that fast food chains in Japan like to mix things up every so often by giving their buns a splash of colour. In the past 12 months alone, we’ve seen McDonald’s present a Sakura Pink teriyaki egg burger in time for the cherry blossom, and last October Burger King rocked a Black Ninja Burger which sported charcoal-black buns and a huge tongue-like slab of bacon.

This week, Burger King has taken its worship of the darkness a step further with two more jet-black offerings: the Kuro Diamond and Kuro Pearl, which feature not just black buns, but slices of cheese and a tangy sauce that look dark enough to swallow any would-be diners whole.

BBQ Whopper “from Miami” ?

10 May

I’m from Florida.  Is Miami, Florida well-known for BBQ sauce?
I haven’t lived in Florida (or even in America) for quite some time…but I don’t recall ever hearing about any “Miami BBQ“.

Well, anyway, Burger King in Japan has recently begun offering “BBQ Whopper Burgers…from Miami“.

Does Burger King offer this in America too?
Have you tried it? How does it taste? “Citrusy”?

Burger King’s Insane Black Burger

21 Sep

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been five years since Burger King re-entered the Japanese market (they first tried and failed here about fifteen years ago.)

Well, to commemorate their fifth anniversary in Japan, Burger King is offering a new, unusual burger called 「非常識の黒いバーガー」 (the “Insane, Black Burger“)!

All-you-can-eat Whoppers

26 Oct

Burger King in Japan has some new menu items…such as:

The "Steakhouse" burger

and some others new items on their menu:

But more surprising is the special campaign that Burger King Japan will be running from 2011 November 1st to 15th.
It’s the “B”iKing ワッパー おかわり自由 (“All-you-can-eat Whoppers”) special.

「バイキング」 ("Biking") is Japanese for "Smorgasbord"...and, when written as "B"iKing it looks like an abbreviation for "Burger King".

If you want to try the All-you-can-eat Whopper deal, you must go to a Burger King in Japan between November 1st and 15th (2011) and buy a Whopper set meal…then you can as many free Whoppers as you can eat within thirty minutes.

Do you like the Whopper? Will you be trying this deal?

Would you buy any of these?

I wrote a post before about some of the unique “Japan only” flavors of “Kit-Kat” chocolates in Japan (Click here to read it).

Well, as Kit-Kat Japan often does, they have introduced a few new flavors recently:

 

"Big Little Strawberry Kit-Kat"

 

"Maccha Assort" (6pcs of "Green Tea Kit-Kat" and 7pcs of "Milk Green Tea Kit-Kat")

 

"Yubari Melon Kit-Kat" (Yubari is a town in Hokkaido, Japan famous for it's melon)

Kit-Kat Japan isn’t the only company in Japan that offers unique “only-in-Japan” products.
Some others are Coca-Cola, Starbucks, Pepsi-Cola, McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and Burger King.

Currently, Burger King Japan is offering two new styles of their “Whopper” sandwich in Japan:
the “All Heavy“, which has extras of all of the condiments on the sandwich…at no extra charge (¥420), and the “Meat Monster“, which has an extra hamburger patty, bacon and chicken…this one costs almost double the normal cost of a “Whopper” (¥820).

Do any of these look good to you?
