It may be a trick or treat for you, but Burger King is ready for you to be spooked!
The restaurant chain just announced a limited edition whopper.

Boo! Are you scared? Burger King announced that their Halloween burger will be "The Ghost Whopper."

The fast food chain announced on Monday the release of its new burger, which is assembled on a white, white-cheddar-flavored bun.

As part of the release of the new whopper, the company hired a psychic named Riz Mirza describing him as “a medium of international renown.” In the ad campaign, he “channels” the spirits of the dead to taste-test the new offering.

The Ghost Whopper sandwich will only be available for a limited time only at 10 select restaurants around the county beginning October 24 for a "recommended price" of $4.59. Burger King said the sandwich is a "1/4 lb of savory flame-grilled beef topped with juicy tomatoes, fresh lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, ketchup, crunchy pickles, and sliced white onions on a White Cheddar Cheese flavored, white sesame seed bun."

Here is a list of restaurants serving the Ghost Whopper:
19901 Van Dyke Road, Detroit, Mich.
3951 New Covington Pike, Memphis, Tenn.
2400 Castor Avenue, Philadelphia, Pa.
2834 N. 44th Street, Phoenix, Ariz.
822 Evans Road, Suite 107, San Antonio, Texas
6135 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego, Calif.

This is not the first time Burger King introduced a Halloween item. Last year, the company launched the "Nightmare King." Burger said the sandwich was a "quarter pound of flame-grilled beef, a white meat crispy chicken fillet, melted American cheese, thick-cut bacon, creamy mayonnaise and onions on a glazed green sesame seed bun."
