With a black bun, black cheese, and black sauce, Burger King's new Kuro burger could be the perfect edible accessory for the rabid All Blacks' fans - if it ever reaches these shores. 

Burger King Japan will soon release its latest creations in the gothic Premium Kuro Burger range (kuro means "black").

The Kuro black bun and tar-black cheese is coloured with bamboo charcoal, while the sauce is blackened with squid ink.

While All Blacks purists should stick to the Kuro Pearl ("Black" Pearl) burger for maximum blackness, the Kuro Diamond is also available with unpatriotic green lettuce, red tomato, white onion and buttery garlic sauce.

Burger King started the noir burger range in 2012, and the Pearl and Diamond are third generation black burger.

The two new burgers will be available in Japanese Burger Kings from September 19.
