Burger King Pranks Customers With Chocolate Whopper For April Fool’s Day

April 1 is nearly upon us and we’re heading into the weekend with extra caution. The day of pranks usually leaves us second guessing what’s real news and what’s simply in jest.

Burger King Singapore created a Chocolate Whopper that appears to be a prime example of an April Fool’s Day prank that we should be on the watch for.

DesignTaxi reports that the all-dessert Whopper is made with chocolate cake buns, a chocolate “beef” patty, raspberry syrup for the ketchup, rings of white chocolate as the onions, milk chocolate as the lettuce (missed opportunity not using green matcha chocolate), vanilla frosting as what we presume is mayo, and candied blood oranges are in place of tomatoes.

All-in-all this was a pretty creative effort, despite making our glucose levels spike looking at it.

As one of the few Whopper fans in the Foodbeast office, I think this was a pretty creative celebration of the Prankster’s Holiday. Though if there are aspirations of adding this to Burger King’s official menu, I’d think again. Variations of the iconic burger usually aren’t that well received — Halloween Whopper, anyone?

So is this real or BK’s annual April Fool’s prank? While it’d be difficult to craft a dessert this intricate to order, Burger King could presumably pre-produce these in bulk for customers. At the end of their video, they mentioned it was “Coming Soon” and followed the words with a “Maybe.”

Guess time will tell, but we’re like 80 percent sure it’s fake.
