Review: Burger King - Nightmare King

Burger King's Nightmare King features a green-colored sesame seed bun sandwiching a quarter-pound flame-grilled beef patty, a crispy-fried chicken filet, thick-cut bacon, American cheese, onions, and mayo.

I paid $6.49 on one.

Rather than a Hulk green or something neon, the bun of the Nightmare King had more of a mossy color to it, mottled with a bit of brown for something that feels a little like fall. There isn't any special flavor to it (unlike the red bun for the Angriest Whopper back in 2016).

With the lack of a strong sauce, most of the various components came across pretty well here with the notable exception of the bacon which was salty but not all that smoky, crispy, or porky. The onion, on the other hand, was crispy and had a strong bite to it.

The cheese wasn't melted but every bite had that creamy flavor.

The beef and chicken were both moist and I could actually taste the charring of the beef patty. The chicken was occasionally crispy and the one-two punch of the chicken and beef was very meaty. That being said chicken and beef aren't exactly complementary flavors (at least not to me) and I found myself wishing I was eating them separately rather than together. With the lack of any buffers (like lettuce or a third bun), the sandwich tasted overly salty.

Overall, Burger King's Nightmare King was a mixed bag. On one hand, I liked that I could taste most of the various ingredients, especially the flame-grilled patty. But on the other hand, the chicken and beef combination wasn't doing much for me. Beyond that and the novel color of the bun, there's not much that sets the Nightmare King apart of Burger King's other burgers/sandwiches.
