That pop-culture princess with the iconic bow returns to Utah on Saturday, April 14, in her pink mobile vehicle of cuteness.
Fans can find the pop-up Hello Kitty Cafe at Fashion Place Mall, 6191 S. State St., between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. Look for it near the Red Rock plaza on the south side of the mall.
The cafe’s sweet menu will include giant cookies, pocket pies, cookie sets, petit fours and a macaron box.
There also will be bow-shaped water bottles, key chains, headbands and T-shirts for sale.
Hello Kitty was introduced Nov. 1, 1974, by the Japanese company Sanrio. Initially, the wide-eyed cartoon character — who has no mouth — was aimed at preteens, but in recent years Hello Kitty has become a multi-generational marketing phenomenon, appearing on everything from socks to expensive jewelry.
