If you're a foodie who appreciates Hello Kitty's power of cute, clear your calendar this Saturday, November 21st. From 10am to 8pm the adorable Hello Kitty Cafe Truck will return to the suddenly-cool-again Glendale Galleria to grace shoppers with supercute food and new treats.
The 40-years-young brand tells us that this visit will feature the unveiling of a new macaron box set (complete with one surprise Sanrio character macaron inside), a Hello Kitty cookie set, a Hello Kitty Cafe mug, a branded T-shirt, perfect little donuts, mini cakes, and more Instagram-ready sweets.
In addition to that stop in Glendale, Sanrio has just announced plans to open a Hello Kitty Cafe pop-up at the Irvine Spectrum later this month. "Designed within a shipping container, the temporary Hello Kitty Cafe Pop-Up will serve up supercute favorites from the hugely popular Hello Kitty Cafe Truck as well as an expanded offering of treats infused with Sanrio characters, daily tea service, specialty coffee and more!" the brand adds.
