Burger King Has Designed a Sandwich to Give You Actual Nightmares


If you're fearless enough, or just enjoy a good scare, visit your nearest participating Burger King restaurant and try the haunting new sandwich. The fast-food giant released a burger with chicken, bacon, cheese on top of a green bun and according to Uproxx, a study was done that resulted in consumers of the burger having nightmares. 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? No word on what makes the bun green... sketchy.

Burger King says it put the burger to the test and worked with the Paramount Trials and Florida Sleep & Neuro Diagnostic Services to conduct a sleep study. Those are available now, but if you're not particularly concerned with waking up in a sweat or your blood sugar, wait until the Nightmare King makes its public debut on Monday, October 22nd, so you can terrify your digestive system into ruining a good night's rest. It is also "clinically proven to induce nightmares".

Burger King's latest concoction is the stuff of dreams - or nightmares. "But, after eating the Nightmare King, the data obtained from the study indicated that the incidence of nightmares increased by three and a half times".

Another participant recalled someone in her dream turned into the burger - and that person then turned in to snake.

"While the authors did find evidence that people believe food can instigate freakish or disturbing dreams, most commonly accusing dairy, whether these dreams are indeed caused by 'the power of cheese, ' or simply misheld beliefs, remains to be seen", she wrote. Control groups are an "essential part of the scientific method", Matheus Melo Pithon wrote in Evidence-based Orthodontics.
