I tried one last night. Other than the color, it was pretty much indistinguishable from the regular whopper. Still, it was quite interesting to see a black hamburger bun.

Wondering why it is black...what are the odds that it is food colouring rather than something exotic like squid ink!?

I think the US version is food coloring, and the Japanese version is squid ink.

Really? I guess squid ink might be cheaper there then. Fishy bun with meaty burger? Ugh.

Squid ink doesn't taste fishy at all, surprisingly!

+1. The pasta with squid ink I had had no flavor at all, without the sauce and delicious scallops it was served with.

Indeed. If anything's fishy-tasting, I'm out of there!
