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

Of course, you can simply turn a sandwich upside down yourself, although it wouldn't come in that tubular retro packaging.

The Upside Down Whopper will start being sold on June 21.

The "Stranger Things"-inspired sandwich is only being offered in select locations in cities including Miami, Houston, Boston, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Dallas, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and NY".

Burger King is releasing a new menu item to celebrate the upcoming third season of the popular Netflix series Stranger Things. There's also a BK app contest with Coke, where you scan the icon displayed on any Burger King drink cup to enter for a chance to win such daily prizes as food, cash, airline tickets, a vehicle, and a Stranger Things VIP experience. Fast-food lovers might remember the chain's "Real Meals" (a jab at McDonald's' famous "Happy Meals") as well as its Halloween-themed, green-pattied "Nightmare Burger". You may need to check with your local Burger King restaurants about the availability of the special sandwich.

While the flipped burger might not offer enough incentive to get excited for the promotion, the packaging might. But this is the first time Coca-Cola brought back New Coke with that branding.

And Burger King's tie-in is the most basic. 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.

If you're familiar with Netflix's hit "Stranger Things" - you'll probably love this.
