NEW YORK- Burger King, the Paramount Trials and Florida Sleep & Neuro Diagnostic Services, Inc. and Goldforest Inc., partnered in a scientific study to determine whether or not Burger King’s new Nightmare King, in fact, caused nightmares. In the study, 100 participants ate a Nightmare King before they went to bed. A group of doctors then tracked various signals on the participants such as heart rate, brain activity and breath to identify whether or not the individuals had vivid dreams.

“According to previous studies, 4 percent of the population experiences nightmares in any given night” said Dr. Jose Gabriel Medina, a specialized somnologist and the study’s lead doctor. “But, after eating the Nightmare King, the data obtained from the study indicated that the incidence of nightmares increased by 3.5 times.”

Medina cited the combination of proteins and cheese led to “…an interruption of the subjects’ REM (Rapid Eye Movement) cycles, during which we experience the majority of our dreams.”

The sandwich features a ¼ lb. flame-grilled beef patty, a 100 percent white meat crispy chicken fillet, melted American cheese, thick cut bacon, mayonnaise, and onions all assembled on a glazed green sesame seed bun. The LTO will be available starting October 22 with a suggested retail price of $6.39 while supplies last.
