This Strawberry Milk Bun is the Creepy Collaboration Between Circle K Sunkus and Menstruation Tracking Website Luna Luna

Sometimes collaborations are a match made in food heaven, case in point, Doritos Locos Tacos. Then there’s those other times when things shouldn’t be mixed, like the idea of a convenience store partnering up with a menstruation tracking website to create a snack food. No, just no.

Making its debut on January 14 in Japan, Circle K Sunkus stores will carry Luna Luna Strawberry Cream Milk Buns for 116 Yen or $1.10 USD. Definitely not as cute and way creepier than Hello Kitty steamed buns, Luna Luna buns are dyed light pink filled with strawberry soy milk cream and come adorned with the Luna Luna rabbit logo. As if things couldn’t get weirder the buns come wrapped complete with wise words of female wisdom such as “Don’t say ‘Let’s grab a bite sometime’ unless you really mean it.” Word.

Why we need sweet buns based on a site that tracks your period is beyond me but if you happen to be in Japan check out these pink treats, if you dare.

Hello Kitty Steamed Buns are a Real Thing at this Japanese Convenience Store

Hello Kitty is one of the busiest felines in the food business. In recent memory, we’ve seen Hello Kitty impersonate a pancake maker, an ice cream maker, an ice cream parfait, Nutella and even take shape as an entire restaurant. Today, we introduce Hello Kitty as a steamed bun.

The new product makes is being introduced in Japanese convenience store Circle K Sunkus (owned by the same folks who also own the Circle K brand in America). The meat-filled Hello Kitty steamed bun will be available starting October 16th, apparently followed by another HEllo Kitty themed bun that is being described as a “completely different look and flavor” on November 6th.

According to sources, the convenience store chain has already successfully promoted themed steamed buns in the past. Earlier this January, the chain supposedly sold out of 400,000 custard flavored Hello Kitty steamed buns in just under a week.
