Do you remember how a while back Burger King released a burger with a black bun for Halloween? Remember how people started reporting that their *poo* started turning blue/green?

Well, they’ve done it again. This time though, Burger King released a new slushy drink. It’s a Frozen Fanta Scary Black Cherry slushy. It apparently has the same sorts of dyes in it that they used to make the black burger buns. People are of course having fun with this, and even going out of their way to pick one up. Because, you know, of course. Who doesn’t want blue/green poop, right? It’s a little less of a surprise this time though, because of the burger they did before. Then, it was a shock to people, before the news eventually got around about, well, that’s what happens. Can I just say though, fast food restaurant Twitter pages are hilarious.

I love how they got Charmin involved, too. So there it is, the new Burger King Black Cherry Slushy will turn your poop colors, and people love them. Though there’s another side effect of this drink – some people are reporting staining. Not in the bowl, but in their mouth. Apparently it’s turning tongues and lips black, and the color might be a little difficult to remove. Just in time for Halloween, right? Source.
