Burger King is serving black cheese in Japan

Why stop at black buns when you can add black cheese to your burger?

Kotaku reports that this month, Burger King Japan is debuting two new "kuro" (black) burgers, and this time, the cheese will be black in addition to the buns.

The previously-available black buns get their color from bamboo charcoal and squid ink, and the black cheese will be made with bamboo charcoal, too. The new burgers will come in two varieties, the Kuro Pearl and the Kuro Diamond, and they'll be available for a limited time in Japan from Sept. 19 until early November.
