I once took a bite out of a Hello Kitty pencil eraser. The little white square with Sanrio’s happy feline on it just smelled so incredibly yummy I bit off a corner before I could stop myself. Tomorrow, if you head to Del Amo Fashion Square (the courtyard near AMC Theatres) you can taste actual Hello Kitty sweets. Why? Because the adorable pink Hello Kitty Café Truck will be parked there from 10 a.m.—8 p.m and they are serving, among other baked goods and coffees with charming latte art, a set of four mini-cakes that, like any good Hello Kitty item, are beyond adorable.
They will, naturally have merch on hand too for sale, but taste the cakes and cookies, not the erasers. Follow them on Facebook for the truck’s next stop or head to OC where they have a yearlong Pop-Up Container at the Irvine Spectrum Center if you find your cuteness quotient waning.
