In partnership with the Paramount Trials and Florida Sleep & Neuro Diagnostic Services, Inc. and Goldforest Inc., the Burger King brand conducted a scientific study over 10 nights with 100 participants (or should we say victims?) who ate the Nightmare King before they went to bed.
The "spooky sandwich" has a quarter pounder of beef, a chicken filet, American cheese, bacon, mayonnaise and onion.
Burger King's latest concoction is the stuff of dreams - or nightmares.
The Nightmare King will be available at participating Burger Kings through November 1.
The Nightmare King gets into the spirit of Halloween. Burger King
Burger King is serving up a new Halloween-themed burger with a side of nightmares. If you want to "feed your nightmares", this is how you can do it. Um, though there's nothing wrong with layering beef, fried chicken, bacon, and cheese onto a sandwich, do you really need a study to determine if that combo will muck up your sleep a bit?
"According to previous studies, 4 percent of the population experiences nightmares in any given night", said Dr. Jose Gabriel Medina, the study's lead doctor, in a statement.
For a past Halloween creation, Burger King released a Halloween Whopper with a black bun. Per USA Today, the incidence of nightmares increased 3.5 times over the normal rate, apparently due to various proteins. It is also "clinically proven to induce nightmares". Postmates will offer the Nightmare King from October 22 through October 25 with free delivery when using promo code 'SCARYGOOD'. If you were planning on eating a combination of three meats before bed, heck, you might as well do it in this convenient burger form, right?
