Grab a Cupful of Kitty-Chan

| Sweets , Sanrio

Hina Matsuri, also known as Girls’ Day, is always celebrated on March 3. And young girls aren’t the only ones who can enjoy the day, thanks to limited-edition Hello Kitty sweets available only at Ministop, one of Japan’s many nationwide convenience stores.

The sweets, which come in cups featuring our favorite anthropomorphic cat wearing a charming kimono, will be available for purchase throughout Japan from February 27 to March 2, 2016. The cups will set you back ¥480 (about US$4.28) and come in two flavors: peach and matcha (green tea).

The peach version features Kitty in a pink kimono with a cup of peach milk mousse with whipped cream and peach sauce on top. The matcha version has Kitty-chan wearing a green kimono with a cup of matcha milk mousse, whipped cream, and matcha sauce. Now, the only real question is: how many do you think you can eat during the limited-time promotion?
