Burger King customers in select restaurants across the USA can begin “trick or treating” for themselves a week early this year, as the QSR chain will be serving Ghost Whopper sandwiches from October 24 through Halloween night on October 31. Selling for $4.59, the seasonal menu offering features a special white cheddar cheese-flavored sesame seed bun loaded with a quarter-pound flame-grilled beef patty garnished with lettuce, tomatoes, mayonnaise, ketchup, onions and pickles
The Miami, Florida-headquartered chain is publicizing the limited time offer with a spooky video starring Riz Mirza, who describes himself as “an internationally-known, master full trance channel, psychic medium, shaman and spiritual teacher.” In the commercial he conducts a “spirit taste test” in the haunted Alexandria Hotel, which can be viewed at YouTube.com/BurgerKing.
Limited time and limited geographical distribution of the Halloween season treat means that only customers showing up at the following Burger King restaurants will have a ghost of a chance to buy the sandwich:
19901 Van Dyke Road, Detroit, MI; 3951 New Covington Pike, Memphis, TN; 2400 Castor Avenue, Philadelphia, PA; 2834 N. 44th Street, Phoenix, AZ; 822 Evans Road, Suite 107, San Antonio, TX; 6135 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego, CA; 35 Powell Street, San Francisco, CA; 5918 Ogeechee Road, Savannah, GA; 1601 Old Trolley Road, Summerville, SC; 2423 South Carrollton Ave., New Orleans, LA.
Elsewhere, diners nationwide will be able to dine on the recently introduced Pretzel Bacon King sandwich, which features a quarter-pound beef patty topped with smoky bacon, melted American cheese, mustard and mayonnaise on a toasted pretzel bun.
Also relatively new to Burger King’s menu are Cheesy Tots melted cheese potato bites covered in a crunchy bread coating. The H.J. Heinz Company Brands trademark product is currently being promoted at $1 for four pieces.
