Hold the Pumpkin Spice Latte: Starbucks Japan Offers Pumpkin Sandwiches
The sandwich is made with Japanese pumpkin called kabocha, lettuce, and a mixture of honey, soy milk, cream cheese, and almonds between slices of barley bread, reports Brand Eating. These sandwiches retail for 440 yen, which is about $3.67 in U.S. dollars.
Brand Eating also notes that Starbucks Japan offers a single-serve pumpkin pie latte, which is available in convenience stores. It even comes with its own green straw.
Burger King Japan’s version used kabocha; bacon; lettuce; a “nut sauce” made with sesame seeds, peanuts, almonds, cashews, and hazelnuts; and a beef patty. Umami Burger sandwiched together kabocha tempura, garlic aïoli, spiced mascarpone, coffee glaze, and their signature beef patty.
