The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck is celebrating another successful road trip so far — it’s the eighth year, to be exact. In previous years, the truck rolled out bites like its Signature Macaron Set (if you can get past the cuteness you’ll gladly chomp ’em down) and Hand-Decorated Cookies Sets, Madeleine Cookie Sets, and Giant Hello Kitty Cafe Chef Cookies. There’ll be plenty of inedible options too like collectibles and such.
