Burger King's Frozen Fanta Drink Has A Colorful Side Effect—And Now We Need To Try One 😮
BK.com, @Boltzdameek/Twitter

Burger King just unleashed a new seasonal offering that is making quite the splash this Halloween.

And though it will satisfy your sweet tooth, the Frozen Fanta Scary Black Cherry slushie is terrifying.

Like the name suggests, the item is black in color and is doing a number on the digestive tract of customers.

It's nothing harmful. That we know of.


This user tweeted about their satisfaction over the Frozen Fanta flavor in the spirit of Halloween. But great taste comes at a great cost.

"Prepare for very sweet & artificial with a subtle aftertaste and interesting odor. + Dyed tongue," wrote @JamesPopStar.

But the worst is yet to come.


Apparently, the black liquid entering your body exits as a different color.

After consuming the slushie, customers reported seeing their poop being expelled in colors of either green, blue, dark blue or even neon blue.

Regardless of the hue, the waste's color is definitely beyond the expected spectrum of a normal stool.


The concerns were real.


The new Fanta flavor is stirring up a fright. This customer even started to question his health.

"OMG... I spent all morning thinking I had some sort of infection in my colon or something!!!," wrote @jareology.



Those who survived the aftertaste issued their friendly warning.


Comedian Michael McBrine thanked Burger King for their service.


The unpleasant side effect isn't turning customers away from the product at all.

If anything, the social media reaction is incentive enough for brave customers to give the Fanta slushie a test run.

As they say, you can have it your way.

Burger King responded to the green poop phenomenon by tagging Charmin toilet paper. Now that's marketing synergy!


The bathroom tissue company tweeted back, declaring: "We were born ready..."

When the Thrillist asked for a comment from the fast food joint, a rep said, "For those who want to know, try it and find out."

The drink is offered for a limited time, but it will remain after Halloween through November 12 - for those who are just dyeing for seconds.

People Describe The Absolute Laziest Things They've Ever Done

Are we being lazy or is it self-care?

That is what you should ask yourself first, before you judge.

Life is an arduous journey and a constant energy suck.

It was inevitable we'd find shortcuts to get by.

It's all about survival.

Redditor Batman_In_Peacetime wanted to hear about the times we just didn't care enough to try harder. They asked:

"What is a lazy thing you began doing when you realised you can live with it?"

Be it on a blind date, at a party where you don't know anyone, or sitting next to someone on an airplane, starting a conversation with a total stranger is difficult.

As much as we'd all like to be friendly, far too often we find ourselves at a loss for words.

It doesn't help that we generally have no idea of what these people's various interests are, making it anyone's guess how they'll respond.

But some have this problem solved, finding a go-to topic which is always guaranteed to get a response, no matter who you're talking to.

Redditor Blugged_Bunny was curious to hear what people thought was the best way to begin a conversation with strangers, leading them to ask:

"What is your go-to 'small talk' topic with strangers?"

People Explain Which Things Are Stupidly Overpriced

Quality comes with price. That's a fact you can't escape. If you hire someone to fix your home, and want them to do the best job, you're going to have to pay above average prices. That's fine. Pay the people what they're worth for the great job they did. However, we live in a world where everyone is looking for their payout, even if what they've given you is less than ideal.

Don't overpay for any of these.

People Divulge The Opinion That Is The Smallest Hill They're Willing To Die On

Not everyone is going to believe what you believe. Our own experiences and values add up to make us who we are. Without them, we'd all be the same amorphous blob of consciousness covering the planet in bland beliefs. You hold something in high regard, and that might mean someone else disagrees with you.

Hold your ground, and be ready to die on that hill, kind of like these people.
