Although the Burger King Pumpkin Burger might be more appropriate for a United States market due to Thanksgiving and Halloween being just around the corner, it is currently only being served in Japan. A seasonal limited edition menu option, it will appeal to those looking to try something new while still visiting a fast food staple.

The Burger King Pumpkin Burger is filled with two slices of fried kabocha squash (also known as Japanese pumpkin) stacked on top of bacon, lettuce and, of course, a beef patty. It is then smothered with a generous helping of a special sauce made from sesame seeds, peanuts, almonds, cashews and hazelnuts. The pumpkin-shaped bun detail finishes the meal.

When a customer asks for a pumpkin bomb, the Burger King Pumpkin Burger comes with 8 extra slices of squash.
