They may not look very appetising, but two new black burgers on sale at a fast food chain are getting plenty of people talking.

Two new black-bunned burgers are on the menu at Burger King in Japan.

The Kuro Pearl is a black pepper patty covered with squid ink-infused sauce and topped with a slice of black cheese in buns which are coloured with bamboo charcoal.

The Kuro Diamond is the same but with a splash of colour, with lettuce, tomatoes, onion and mayonnaise.

The burgers, which are available in their restaurants across Japan until November, have received mixed reviews from customers so far. There are currently no plans to roll them out globally.
