We can always count on Hello Kitty to be an adorable culinary inspiration, from pancake makers to pumpkin donuts. The Sanrio character turns the big 4-0 next year; so in premature celebration, HK has been turned into a favorite Japanese snack — inarizushi.
Inarizushi is typically a thin outer layer of fried tofu with peaked corners and stuffed with rice. The dish naturally resembles Hello Kitty’s face shape, so the Tokyo-based company Sazae Shokuhin is adding Hello Kitty-esque features (bow included) to their inarizushi.
Unfortunately, it’s only available at Sazae Shops in northern Japan. If you’re lucky enough to be in the area, we highly suggest getting your hands on these adorable treats.
