DailyDirt: Colorful Burgers Because Why Not?
from the urls-we-dig-up dept
Summer is here, and maybe you’ve already fired up the grill and cooked some burgers in the backyard. But why settle for plain old regular burgers when you could cook your own kinda disgusting-looking ones that are novelties in Asia? (You might need a little squid ink and bamboo charcoal.) Or you could visit Japan and just buy a strangely colored burger from Burger King or McDonald’s. Too bad Heinz doesn’t make goofy-colored ketchup anymore.
- Burger King Japan is going to sell bright red burgers in two varieties: Aka (“red”) Samurai Chicken burgers and Aka Samurai Beef burgers. The red buns and red cheese will come from added tomato powder, and the ketchup will just be ketchup — or red hot sauce made from miso and hot pepper. [url]
- Burger King also has an all black burger in Japan. It comes with black buns, black cheese and a black sauce — not just black buns like the Darth Vader (“Dark Vador”) burger offered by French fast food chain Quick a few years ago. The Kuro (“black”) Pearl burger and Kuro Diamond burgers were first introduced in 2012 and have been offered in limited quantities ever since. [url]
- McDonald’s Japan also sold a black burger it called the ‘Squid Ink Burger’ for a limited time around Halloween. It wasn’t actually that black, though, and the cheese was just normal. McD’s sold ‘black and white‘ burgers in China in 2012, but unsurprisingly these burgers aren’t permanent menu items. [url]

The Pirate Mike Spam-bot keeps jamming Techdirt posts into SuprBay! Apparently at random.
This one: Sell Features, Not Songs — HA! AS IF PIRATES EVER BUY ANYTHING!
Last four posts currently have less than 140 page views TOTAL, not each! — Keep posting on SuprBay, Pirate Mike! I get more than hoots from it than you get page views!
At risk of running up those massive numbers, I read the TWO replies. The first is terse but certainly positive.
The second from “connor17” is more fun from my view:
>>> [Grasmeyer] “I believe these are natural characteristics of Music, that got temporarily pushed into the background in the age of Mass Media”
>>> [Grasmeyer] “One can create dynamics of social competition within a fanbase”
That’s one of the most retarded things I’ve heard lately.
Sheesh. And you fanboys think I’M rude.

You missed a perfectly good opportunity to mention Pretty Patties from SpongeBob!
That is an awesome episode of SpongeBob. From 2001 — so if only the creators of SpongeBob had patented the idea in real life….
Re: Colorful hamburgers
That was my reaction.
