Burger King announces the "Halloween Whopper"

Get ready, America. Burger King is bringing its black burger to the U.S., and it's got a Halloween twist.

The burger giant has taken a cue from its Japanese restaurants and will begin selling a variant of the Kuro Burger, which it released in Japan last September, called the Halloween Whopper.

The burger will have a pitch-black bun, just like its predecessor, but will be infused with an eerily familiar American flavor: A.1. sauce.

The sauce will be baked into the bun and will be used as a condiment on the burger alongside mayonnaise and the rest of the traditional Whopper fixings.

While the Kuro Burger sported black-colored cheese, the Halloween Whopper will use yellow American.

The burger will be available for a limited time for a suggest price of $4.99.
