Burger King is going all out for Halloween this year, recently putting up for grabs their brand new “Scary Black Cherry” Frozen Fanta drink, a pitch black beverage that’s turning tongues black this Halloween season. But that’s not all, as they’ve also just unleashed a sequel to the recent “Halloween Whopper” from a few years back… the “Nightmare King”!
Unveiled by NY Daily News today, the “Nightmare King” has a green bun, and Burger King claims that it’s been scientifically proven to cause nightmares. No seriously, we’re not kidding.
“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.”
Allegedly, the offering’s combination of proteins and cheeses are to blame.
The site notes that the green bun is made from “all natural coloring from watermelons,” the burger featuring a 1/4 lb. 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 “Nightmare King” will be available at select locations beginning October 22.
