It's autumn, a.k.a. the season of pumpkin spice everything -- in America, at least.
Over in Australia, however, it’s actually spring, which brings to mind budding flowers rather than orange gourds.
However, perhaps KFC Australia isn’t quite ready to leave the autumnal vibes behind in favor of more seasonal delights, because according to Brand Eating it has just hopped on the pumpkin bandwagon with its new Pumpkin & Feta Twister.
The new menu item doesn’t use the same kind of pumpkin those of us in the states are using to carve Jack-O-Lanterns, however. Rather, it uses what looks to be kabocha, which is more commonly known as Japanese pumpkin.
The Pumpkin & Feta twister features grilled chicken, crumbled pieces of feta cheese, what appears to be roasted kabocha (the pumpkin in question), lettuce, and smoky chipotle mayo wrapped up in a warm flour tortilla.
“It’s the goods,” promises the description of the item on the KFC website.
Fans in Australia, take note: the Pumpkin & Feta Twister is available for only a limited time, so if you want one last nostalgic taste of autumn, go pick up one today.
