Star Wars Burgers Debut in France
Darth Vader is the dark character from Star Wars and when the latest movie "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace 3D" is released February 8 in France there will be a burger to go along with it. The French restaurant chain is "Quick" and they are releasing a very dark burger in conjunction with the movies release, much like we do here in the States. Now when I say it's a 'dark' burger I mean it's served on a black bun.
Not only will they have the Darth Vader burger but also a burger in honor of Darth Maul and Yoda. Each burger having it's own special trait. The Darth Maul burger is on a semi-red (dyed) bun with poppy seeds the Yoda has squares of white cheese on a white bun. The Vader burger almost looks burned because it's on a black bun (dyed also) with double meat patties and pepper cheddar cheese.
Here in the states you usually get a toy or the food wrappers/boxes and cups are themed but I'm not sure I've ever seen the burgers dyed to fit the theme. I see no problem with a black bun it's almost like a rye bun that is dark brown but it's making headlines from France to the US. From the photos it looks pretty yummy, I'd eat it!!
