McDonald’s has launched a new burger in China the black or white buns, “they’re a play on a Chinese phrase ‘heibai liangdao tongchi,’ which describes people who are so well-connected with both the government (that’s the white side) and organized crime (‘black society’, as it’s called in Chinese) that they can ‘eat from both sides’.”
Inside the black burger packs a beef patty with chopped onions, black pepper sauce and a “black” bun topped with white sesame seeds. The white burger contains a chicken patty with sweet and spicy sauce and a white bun with black sesame seeds.
Chinese blog Beijing Cream gave the burger meal a scathing review, however, writing:
This meal offends everyone. I would sooner eat a century egg bathed in stinky tofu with a chicken-foot garnish than order this again.
I’m sure it won’t hit the USA.
