01.March.2018 | FOOD
The Japanese sweets items using the motifs of HELLO KITTY and Pomu Pomu Purin are available at LAWSONs throughout Japan (except LAWSON stores in Okinawa, Natural LAWSON and LAWSON Store 100).
“Tabemasu” is a series of Japanese sweets items, the name being a contraction of the series name, “Taberareru Mascot (eatable mascot characters).” The series uses the dough made of bean-jam, sugar and mochi powder called “nerikiri” to express the characters. It is a series of a new type of Japanese sweets items that you might feel guilty eating since the cuteness of characters are expressed in a detail.
This time, “Tabemasu HELLO KITTY” and “Tabemasu Pomu Pomu Purin” using the motifs of the two characters of Sanrio were added to the series. The sweets items express the characters’ features in detail such as KITTY’s ribbon, Pomu Pomu Purin’s beret and cute eyes. HELLO KITTY has the flavor of apple and Pomu Pomu Purin has the flavor of pudding and both sweets items can be enjoyed by both children and adults. Let’s enjoy the delicate taste and soft texture of these Japanese sweet items.
The quantity of each sweet items is limited, so let’s get them as soon as possible!
