Burger King’s new hamburger doesn’t just look scary. The restaurant chain says it may actually keep you up at night.

The “Nightmare King” is a quarter-pound beef patty topped with even more protein- chicken, cheese and bacon. Then there’s onions and mayo all on a green sesame seed bun.

This isn’t the first time Burger King has served a bun of a different color. There was once the black Halloween whopper.

Feast your eyes on the A.1. #HalloweenWhopper. And not on what's lurking behind you.

The chain worked with a sleep study center. Experts found the new dish’s protein and cheese combination can raise the chance of nightmares occurring by 3.5 times. One participant recalled that someone in her dream turned into the burger and then the burger turned into the figure of a snake.

But if you're feeling brave, the Halloween themed offering is only available for a limited time, and you can always wash it down with a frightening frozen black cherry Fanta.

give in to your dark side... scary black cherry now at BK for a limited time.
