It’s a combination of McDonald’s classic French fries, drizzled with pumpkin sauce and chocolate sauce.

Time magazine reported that Japan’s McDonald’s locations will begin selling the novelty item on Sept. 28, and will end the promotion on Oct. 31.

This is not the first Halloween food McDonald’s has tested out. In 2014 a burger with a black bun — dyed with squid ink — was offered in Tokyo.  In January, McDonald’s also offered a McChoco Potato in Japan. That item combined two types of chocolate sauces—chocolate with cacao flavor and white milk chocolate.
