Wendy's Japan Has Started Topping Burgers With Turkey and Mashed Potatoes

Wendy's Japan has gone Thanksgiving crazy, topping burgers and chicken sandwiches with turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy.
It has been scientifically proven that turkey and mashed potatoes are some of the best things you can put in your mouth. That being said, it's not as if anyone has begun topping their burgers with the stuff. Nobody would do that, right?

The Mashed Potato Burger at Wendy's Japan features a layer of mashed potatoes, a burger patty and, oh yeah, a bunch of turkey meat. The Pretzel Turkey Mashed Potato Burger also contains turkey and mashed potatoes, but ups the ante with the inclusion of gravy and honey mustard. That's a whole lot of sauce.

Each of these sandwiches can also be ordered with a chicken patty instead of a burger, in case you want to double up on the poultry. These starchy sammiches will be available until the end of January.
