McDonald’s releases terrifying ‘squid ink’ burger for Halloween

Not to be outdone by Burger King and their completely black ‘Kuro Burger’, McDonald's in Japan is now offering black Squid Ink (Ikasumi) Burger in time for Halloween.

The burger’s colouring is all natural squid ink, but customers’ pictures show that in reality the burger is a sort of putrid grey-brown rather than black.

The also have a second ghostly white burger for Halloween, which contains the terrifyingly spooky ingredients of chicken and camembert. Yeah, we don’t get it either.

The burgers are being tried out in just three McDonald's branches in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district.

Spooky though they are, we can’t see them making their way over to Irish menus any time soon.
