One Pumpkin Bomb, To Go

This seasonal treat is actually made with kabocha, but I guess “Squash Burger” didn’t have quite the same ka-ching to it. This Pumpkin Burger from Burger King Japan is not only topped with slices of roasted orange vegetable, it also features a special mayo sauce chock full o’ peanuts, almonds, cashews and hazelnuts, go figure.

If you’re a real glutton for pumpkin punishment and two measly slices of squash on your burger isn’t enough, order a Pumpkin Bomb and they’ll pile on eight more  for an additional two bucks! Squash-a-licious!
