You know, like raspberries, cranberries, and blueberries. And the burger is called the "Premium Berry."

According to Ameba, the berries are cooked in red wine for a sweet-and-sour "BK Mixed Berry Sauce." The hamburger also has actual blueberries on it, giving Premium Berry a very berry-y texture. Which is exactly what you want from a hamburger?

That looks truly horrific.

The Premium Berry is part of Burger King Japan's winter menu and is available starting today for 590 yen (US$5), along with a cheese mushroom burger I would certainly eat.


And, according to Twitter users castle_AlucarD and Jekyll, this is what the actual berry burger looks like.

Okay, it doesn't look so bad, right? Right?
