Nerd Food: Mini Cakes And Macarons From The Hello Kitty Food Truck
If you're a fan of Hello Kitty, you've no doubt seen pictures of the Hello Kitty Cafe, which is both a pop-up cafe and a food truck. While I have not seen the pop-up cafe in person (since it seems to be a California thing), the food truck did pop by White Marsh, Maryland on August 26th! This was my first time at the food truck, and I was genuinely excited to gorge myself on Hello Kitty-themed food.
The food truck made its yearly stop in White Marsh, Maryland, and I couldn't miss out on it.
Obviously things are marked way, way up. This even puts Disney prices to shame. But for a once a year (or lifetime) thing, why not. It's important to note, though, that you need to buy $25 worth of food in order to get the "free bag". Buying the $27 shirt or the $36 thermos will not qualify you. Sanrio should really state that on their signs as to not mislead people, which is kind of shitty of them — let's be honest.
The food was actually good, though. The little cakes and macarons were soft and tasted fresh. The water is just cute, and yes, that is what a $36 thermos looks like. I got it for my mom, so at least I know it'll be used. If you're a fan of Hello Kitty, this should be on your list — just be prepared to spend a good chunk of money. For everyone else, this is probably a hard pass.
