The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck Visits Seattle
The Hello Kitty Café Truck is in town for this weekend only. I found it parked behind the EMP, to celebrate the opening of the Hello Kitty exhibit on display there. I didn't check out the exhibit but I did get me some sweets from the Hello Kitty Cafe. It was pouring down rain but I wanted to see the adorable and very pink, Hello Kitty Café Truck, which is actually a Mercedes Van. Luckily for me, there was only a few peeps in line because of the wet and dark night, I'm guessing. The "truck" travels around the country and Hello Kitty fans line up for hours, hoping and waiting to get some macaroons, petit cakes, or a t-shirt. They were sold out of a couple of things so I'm assuming there were tons of people there earlier. I got some macarons and they were sweet and oh so cute. But best of all they were delicious. There were five in the Hello Kitty adorned box, with fillings I'm guessing were chocolate, raspberry, green tea, peach, and vanilla. The peach one was incredible and tasted like peach cheesecake and the chocolate filling in the blue macaroon was a nice surprise. The raspberry one which we tried first, was surprising fresh, light, and had actual raspberry seeds. I didn't expect the macaroons to be so tasty and sweet but its Hello Kitty, and she never lets us down!
