If you weren't one of the mega-fans who waited three hours to shop at the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck the last time it was in North Texas, you're in luck.
The truck rolls into Plano once again on Saturday, Nov. 12. It'll be parked outside the Crate and Barrel at The Shops at Willow Bend mall from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The bright pink vehicle debuted at Hello Kitty Con in 2014 and has since been making a national tour, selling treats and greeting fans across America. Though it's billed as a food truck, the Hello Kitty Cafe primarily deals in sweets. And while they're cute as all get-out, they aren't cheap.
A box of five macarons cost $15, according to a North Texan who shared their receipt with us in the spring.
A box of three Hello Kitty cookies retailed for $12, a box of four mini cakes cost $15, and a bottle of water in an adorable bow-shaped bottle retailed for $3.
But let's be real: This isn't about the price, it's about the novelty. Over its 42-year lifespan, Hello Kitty has become a global phenomenon, extending from figurines, school supplies and clothing to candy, guitars and even sanitary napkins. Never mind the fact that Hello Kitty is not even a cat.
When D-FW fan Helen McCourt went to the last Hello Kitty truck showing, she bought one of everything and spent $121.
