Yes, it's that time of the year again, when all your favorite foods turn into pumpkins.

And if you happen to live in Japan, the list of "pumpkin-spiced" comestibles now includes burgers.

Starting next Friday, and for a limited time only, Burger King Japan customers can treat themselves to a seasonal BK Pumpkin Burger — two slices of fried kabocha squash (AKA Japanese pumpkin) stacked atop bacon, lettuce, a beef patty, and a generous helping of a special sauce made from sesame seeds, peanuts, almonds, cashews, and hazelnuts.

Even the bun is pumpkin-shaped, and asking for a "pumpkin bomb" will get you eight extra slices of kabocha.

The novelty sandwich will set you back about $4 (or just over $5 with extra pumpkin), and will be around for the next few weeks after which it will disappear forever until next year probably.
