Not only are things getting spooky at Burger King for the Halloween season, but they're getting spicy as well.

Burger King has announced it will be releasing a Halloween bucket for a limited time in select markets with any purchase of $1 or more. These “Trick-or-Heat” buckets are inspired by two ghost pepper menu additions the restaurant has added.

Beginning Oct. 12, customers nationwide can chow down on the Ghost Pepper Whopper and a brand new menu item, Ghost Pepper Chicken Fries.

“Earlier this year, we asked guests if we should bring back the Ghost Pepper Whopper or introduce Ghost Pepper Chicken Fries,” Burger King said in a press release. “The results were split, so we’re adding both products to our menus nationwide this Halloween season, giving guests multiple ways to enjoy the perfect combination of flavor and heat.”

The returning Ghost Pepper Whopper boasts a 100% beef, flame-grilled patty with spicy queso, jalapeños, bacon, and ghost pepper cheese on a Halloween orange bun. The burger will be available as supplies last.

The Ghost Pepper Chicken Fries come in four, eight, and 12-piece packs and customers can choose dipping sauces.
