Jack of all trades or slave laborer: call her what you will, there’s just about no job that Hello Kitty won’t do.
Last summer, for example, Hello Kitty surprised fans when she developed a taste for human flesh in her undead debut. Now, Kitty is available in steamed bun form for humanity to turn the tables and feast on her.
The steamed bun, offered at Circle K and Sunkus convenience stores across the country as of January 10, costs 150 yen (US $1.95) and is filled with delectable apple-flavored custard.
If you’re looking to order one, they’re called Hello Kitty-Man—where man is for manjuu, meaning steamed bun in Japanese.
If you’re anything like us though, you’ll find yourself just staring at the adorable little bun deciding if you have the heart to eat it.
If this is the case, we recommend tempting yourself with the sweet custard filling by tearing her fluffy little face in half. At that point you’ll want to consumer her before her innards lose their moisture and harden.
While Circle K hasn’t specified how long they’ll be offering Hello Kitty-Man, we don’t doubt that they’ll only be offered for a limited time, so be sure to kick your conscious to the curb and chew up some Kitty buns as soon as you can!
▼ This hurts me more than it hurts you…
▼ We recommend gnawing at her from the face.
▼ The “skull-splitter,” for those who find themselves hesitating.
▼ There’s even a “Happy Fortune” for when you’ve finished feasting, you monster♪
