Burger King Japan Gets Into the Spirit of the Season, Introduces the Pumpkin Burger

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.
