LONDON, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- A pair of London gourmets have designed a burger they say tastes like "human flesh" to celebrate the return of AMC's The Walking Dead.

The Messhead team, a partnership between London baker Miss Cakehead and Mess London chef James Thomlinson, said the burger they designed to answer the question "What does human flesh taste like?" will be available to sample Sept. 30 at the Terminus Tavern, a pop-up destined for a secret East London location.


The burgers, created to celebrate the fifth season of The Walking Dead, were developed by the Messhead team using testimonials from famous cannibals throughout history.

The burger contains pork, veal, chicken livers and bone marrow in an attempt to replicate the taste and texture of human meat.
