Is This Halloween Burger Purple?
In Japan, Halloween is an especially fun time of year, and no meal is complete without a tasty burger. You might be curious about the taste of a purple burger sauce.

This year, Burger King Japan is channeling the Halloween spirit with a zombie-themed promotion. It has opened a new Shibuya Ghost Shop in Shibuya Station.

The Ghost Whopper is only available at 10 Japanese restaurants.
