Back in 2015, Burger King released a "Halloween Whopper" that featured a pitch black bun, a burger that supposedly had an "interesting" effect on patron's fecal matter. Well, the fast food chain is back with another Halloween-themed sandwich that features a green bun that's made with “all natural coloring from watermelons” and is claimed to give you nightmares for consuming it. Behold, the "Nightmare King."
Unveiled by NY Daily News, the site reports that "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.”
Medina claims that the combination of proteins and cheese in the Nightmare King led to “an interruption of the subjects’ REM (rapid eye movement) cycles, during which we experience the majority of our dreams.”
The "Nightmare King" will be available at participating Burger King eateries for a limited time starting October 27th and sell for about $6.39. The sandwich is composed of 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.
We're almost certain this Halloween offering from the fast food giant will carry the same shocking side effect as the "Halloween Whopper."
