Burger King posted on their social media channels, “don’t blink…it’s coming”, with a gif attached. Pausing the gif at the right spot will reveal a sandwich with a white bun. Is this a Ghost Whopper?

In 2018 we had the Nightmare King with a green bun. We’ll keep you posted on this mystery white bun burger that we’ll just call the Ghost Whopper until official details are revealed.
