The spirit of Halloween is really coming alive this year as more of our favorite fast food locations are introducing spooky items to their menu.

Burger King is rolling out with a bright green burger that's called "Nightmare King." Apparently, this hamburger is scientifically proven to give you nightmares!

The fast food giant has also released a new Frozen Fanta Scary Black Cherry slushie to celebrate the spookiest time of the month.

People are loving the taste of this dollar menu item, but some people have reported some weird side effects after consuming the drink. One Twitter user said his poop turned green!

But it's not just BK that's taking Halloween to a whole other level, other fast food chains like IHOP and Starbucks are jumping on the bandwagon.

Starbucks' new Halloween drink apparently tastes like a creamsicle, and people can't get enough of it!

If you thought the Unicorn Frappuccino that was introduced in April 2017 was amazing, you might have to visit your local Starbucks and try the Witch's Brew Frappuccino.

Last year's Halloween drink, the Zombie Frappuccino, had mixed reviews, but this new drink might win your heart.

It honestly looks like it was made by the two-tailed mermaid in the company's logo.

According to a press release, the drink is made with "a pinch of toad's breath. A dash of bat warts. A sprinkle of lizard scale."

If that doesn't sound appetizing to the Halloween spirit inside of you, I don't know what will.

All jokes aside, this witch's concoction is made with orange creme Frappuccino, chia seeds, and topped with vanilla whipped cream and a green powder.

"We wanted to create a flavor that you might enjoy at a Halloween party,"� Jennica Robinson from Starbucks beverage development team said.

"It gets a little bit of juicy-ness from the orange flavor."�

What are fellow witches rating this charming concoction?

Twitter user RobotLyra has a point. If you're not a fan of chia seeds, you may end up hating the drink.

The good news is that no one has reported any strange side effects from the drink. Besides, chia seeds are high in fiber, protein, and omega-3s!

The Witch's Brew is available for a limited-time only, while supplies last.
