Burger King to sell 'Upside Down Whoppers' before 'Stranger Things' returns

Are you ready to go back to the Upside Down?

What distinguishes the new sandwich from a normal Whopper is mainly the fact that Burger King will...serve it upside-down.

Burger King is selling an "Upside Down Whopper" to celebrate the premiere of the third season of "Stranger Things". In the meantime, the third season of the show is due to hit Netflix in early July.

Dollar pulls away from 11-week lows as euro, commodity currencies sag
The CME FedWatch Tool now shows a 17.5 % chance that the Fed will ease rates at the June 19th meeting. But they expect the first move to be a half percentage point, and the second cut a quarter point.

It's got all the fixings of an OG Whopper with a quarter-pound flame-grilled beef patty, tomatoes, fresh lettuce, mayo, ketchup, crunchy pickles, and onions sandwiched between two sesame seed buns.

The fast-food chain says customers will also be able to purchase Stranger Things merchandise at participating locations. Limited-edition tees, crowns, ketchup packets, and pins will be on-hand, as well.

While the flipped burger might not offer enough incentive to get excited for the promotion, the packaging might. Upside Down. And it's only being served at eleven (Eleven, get it?!) locations- in Miami, Houston, Boston, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and NY. Beginning Wednesday for a week, it will sell a Whopper meal, which includes a small drink and small fries, for $5 on the app with $0 delivery fees if the whole order costs more than $10. Those who do so will also be treated to "exclusive" content from the show. The beverage company rebooted New Coke because the new season takes place during the summer of 1985 - when Coca-Cola debuted the new recipe that flopped. The "new" item is a reference to "the upside down" - an alternate reality dismension from the Netflix series "Stranger Things", which usually houses various monsters.
