The Hello Kitty Cafe truck — a bright pink Mercedes van adorned with flowers and the feline Sanrio mascot — will be making several stops in the Bay Area in the next few weeks.
According to its event page, the Instagram-famous truck is slated to appear in the following locations:
- Santana Row in San Jose: 10 a.m. Saturday, May 12
- Stonestown Galleria in San Francisco: 10 a.m. Saturday, May 19
- Stoneridge Shopping Center in Pleasanton: 10 a.m., Saturday, May 26
- Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek: 10 a.m., Saturday, June 2
The Hello Kitty truck tours different cities selling — you guessed it — Hello Kitty gear and sweet treats. Fans can look forward to a new batch of exclusive goodies and limited-edition collectibles, including giant cookies, pocket pies, keychains and bow-shaped water bottles.
Wherever it goes, a bounty of Instagram posts are sure to follow. Since making its debut at the annual Hello Kitty Con, a (surprisingly real) convention devoted to all things Hello Kitty, the truck and its retail items have attracted a rabid following on social media.
