The New Taste Trend Is Flavored Buns
I have had a lifelong love affair with the burger. Millions of us do. The fast food industry is always searching for ways to add new consumers to our ranks and once again the food folks are looking at enhancing the bun.
There was a brief time when pretzel buns were all the rage. I was not a fan of that approach but now the new trend now seems to be flavored and colored buns.
WayBack Burgers' latest idea is the Crispy Chicken Sriracha Sandwich that includes a bun infused with sriracha.
By now you might have heard about or tried Burger King's A.1. Halloween Whopper which features a black bun infused with A.1. Sauce. The bun makeover has gone international with McDonald’s featuring a new grey bun in China. The grey bun’s flavor? Well, while this one doesn't have a special flavor, it does kind of look like cement.
