Burger King is in the game to win Halloween with the unveiling of it’s ‘Nightmare King’ burger, a sandwich topped with a green bun that the company claims has been ‘scientifically proven to cause nightmares.’
According to the New York Daily News, a previous Halloween-themed whopper sandwich released by the company in 2015 gave customers green colored poop due to it’s black bun and A1 sauce combination.
Here’s hoping the company’s 2018 concoction doesn’t produce the same nightmarish results.
The chain did reveal that the green bun is made with “all natural ingredients from watermelons.”
The Nightmare King will feature a quarter pound of flame-grilled beef, a white meat crispy chicken fillet, melted American cheese, thick cut bacon, mayonnaise and onions on a glazed green sesame seed bun.
The burger will go on sale at participating Burger King’s nationwide for a limited time starting Monday, October 22nd.
Burger King teamed up with the Florida Sleep & Neuro Diagnostic Services to conduct a study over 10 nights with 100 participants who ate the Nightmare King before they went to bed.
“According to previous studies, 4 percent of the population experiences nightmares in any given night,” Dr. Jose Gabriel Medina, a somnologist (sleep disorder specialist) and the study’s lead doctor, said in a statement. “But, after eating the Nightmare King, the data obtained from the study indicated that the incidence of nightmares increased by 3.5 times.”
Burger King already rolled out its Scary Black Cherry Frozen Fanta drink this year, a pitch black beverage that’s turning tongues black this season.
