It might be spring in Australia, but it looks like the people down there are jumping on the pumpkin spice train. Kentucky Fried Chicken has announced the introduction of a new Pumpkin Feta Grilled Chicken Twister to its Australian menus, Make Eat reported on Saturday.

Offering a twist on the classic wrap, the new KFC menu item features juicy grilled chicken topped with roasted pumpkin, crumbled feta cheese and smoked chipotle mayonnaise, all wrapped in a hot tortilla wrap. The pumpkin used in the wrapper looks more like kabocha, which is a Japanese pumpkin and very different from the more orange pumpkins used in the United States for fall treats.

Kabocha is actually a squash that has a texture that is a cross between a pumpkin and a sweet potato. In Asia, it is used in desserts and sometimes fried in tempura or stew. Kabocha is also good for you. It contains iron, vitamins and beta-carotene.

If you live in Australia or find yourself visiting and decide to try the new wrap, it will cost you AUD $ 6.95, or around US $ 5.28, Chewing boom reported. If you want a combo with fries and a drink, you’ll shell out AUD $ 9.95, or around US $ 7.56. The wrap has 500 calories.

This isn’t the first time a fast food chain has dabbled in spicy pumpkin food. In September, McDonald’s announced spicy pumpkin fries in its stores in Japan for a limited time. The restaurant’s popular fries are drizzled with “pumpkin and chocolate sauce”, giving it a Halloween theme.

The KFC wrap joins the chains of other Twister menu items, which include the Sweet Chili Twister, Regular Twister, BLT Twister, Chicken Salad Twister, Chicken Caesar Twister, and Spicy Twister.
