Burger King is hoping you’ll forget all about the nasty new surrounding its Black Halloween Burger and focus on a new novelty burger:  The Extra Long Sriracha Cheeseburger.

The fast food chain announced it’s adding some spice to the double-wide burger, unveiled last summer, with the help from America’s new favorite hot sauce, Sriracha.

According to the chain’s website, the burger features “two savory flame-grilled, 100% beef burger patties layered side by side topped with a spicy Sriracha flavored sauce, melted American cheese, crisp iceberg lettuce, sliced white onions, all served on a freshly toasted hoagie bun.”

The Extra Long Sriracha Cheeseburger comes after the controversial rollout of the chain’s A.1. Halloween Whopper –a black-bunned burger made with the steak sauce that has reportedly been turning people’s poop green.

The food review website GrubGrade got a taste of the Extra Long Sriracha Cheeseburger and wasn’t impressed.

“Taste-wise, the two flame-grilled burger patties provide the beef smoke and the cheese give a minor sharp tang,” it wrote. “It’s not a bad combo of dueling salty flavors, but there’s not much of any standout.”
