McDonald recently released hamburgers with concrete-colored bread buns in select locations in China. It has been called the “futuristic burger” or “modern burger.” They buns with slightly metallic features is only available till November 3!
Reading the initial article from here, it didn’t offer what made up those buns and I wanted to find out how safe it was before I posted an article here. I copied and pasted the following article from Delish about this burger and they appear to be non-partisan, so a good thing in my opinion. This source will also give other items on the menu from other fast food restaurants from around the world.
If you tried this burger out and would like to drop a comment on your initial thoughts (or reservations) and what it tastes like, feel free to do so!
McDonald’s Just Released Burgers with Silver Buns
The not-so-pretty patty is taking China by storm.

McDonald’s has been doing a lot to get our attention these days. Over the span of a few months, the chain has managed to completely change its image by employing everything from self-service burger kiosks to all-day breakfast. And while those advents were great and all—oh hi, late night McMuffins!—its latest creation leaves much to be desired. Frankly, it’s leaving us a little perplexed.
Introducing the Modern China Burger on a silver bun, which seems like an answer to Burger King’s black buns in Japan that just recently launched in America for Halloween. Perhaps if McDonald’s hadn’t been so quick to dismiss the McWhopper, BK could have offered up some guidance. Instead, we’re left with this sordid grey getup.
The bun is simply made by baking black sesame seeds into the dough while the sandwich is layered with a pork patty, bacon, iceberg lettuce, and lots of American cheese, which actually doesn’t sound too bad. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), it’s only available in China through November 3.
Though not particularly appetizing, this burger does have one plus side: It won’t give you any unsavory side effects in the bathroom, which is more than Burger King can say.
