While traditional cafes and coffee chains will unveil pumpkin-flavored beverages during the autumn season, Starbucks locations across Japan are providing an alternative pumpkin sandwich for consumers. This unique twist on a popular seasonal flavor will certainly gain some attention with its bright orange appearance.
The pumpkin sandwich is the latest addition to the Starbucks Japan menu, which aims to honor the fall season. This vibrant meal boasts its color using boiled slices of Japanese pumpkin. This pumpkin is stuffed between two slices of barley bread along with lettuce. There is also a seasonally appealing condiment topping of honey, soy milk, cream cheese and almonds.
The season-honoring sandwich is appealing to both pumpkin-lovers and adventurous eaters alike. While the meal is only available in Japan, perhaps with enough consumer demands, the American market might adopt the new menu item.
