Did you know November 1st is hello kitty’s birthday? To cerebrate her big day, Kitty chan and Circle K (one the most common convenient stores in Japan) are collaborating on a new yummy treat. Look at this Hello Kitty Nikuman!!! 150 JPYen and 400,000 limited buns and they are expected to be sold out in less than a week. They will be available at Circle K on Oct 16th. In case you don’t know, Nikuman is a steamed bun, filled with juicy ground meat and onion filling. Nikuman is typically available in cold weather months. starting October. I used to get Nikuman after school for a little snack on the way home. They taste soooo good. All the convini stores usually carry an assortment of flavors like curry, anko ( sweet red bean), pizza and etc.
I need to celebrate her birthday in states too. Wish Hello Kitty Nikuman was available here just like in Japan!!!
