Burger King Japan launches a pumpkin burger

It's at times like this when we're glad our search for the best burger doesn't extend to other countries.

Those crazy fools at Burger King in Japan have decided to commemorate this year's annual pagan holiday, aka Halloween, with a special pumpkin burger. Cue Burger King in America kicking themselves for not thinking of it first.

The burger contains slices of fried kabocha squash (Japanese pumpkin), bacon, lettuce, a regular beef patty and an odd sauce containing sesame seeds, peanuts, almonds, cashews, and hazelnuts.

They also claim that the bun is pumpkin shaped.

It's a seasonal special which means that Japanese fast food consumers will probably be safe post-Halloween.
