#1: Hello Kitty Chocolate Cookies in Tin Box ($7.90)
Nothing like some simple, melt-in-your-mouth butter cookies to sweeten your day. These individually wrapped chocolate-flavoured ones are shaped like Hello Kitty’s face, and come in a purple square tin featuring the Sanrio character holding a tray of bakes. You’d definitely want to keep it after everything has been devoured!
#2: Hello Kitty Cookies Gift Box, set of 3 ($21.80)
The aforementioned butter cookies also come in a set of 3, packaged in a lovely gift box. Each tin of cookies varies in design and colour, and contains a different flavour: Original (pink), Chocolate (purple), and Earl Grey (green). Now you get the best of 3 worlds!
#3: Hello Kitty French Bread Crisps ($6.90)
Think of these as slices of French baguette, but in biscuit form. Baked instead of fried, these individually-wrapped munchies have a light, crispy, rusk-like consistency and a hint of fragrant butteriness.
#4: Hello Kitty French Bread Gift Box with Mug ($21.80)
The French Bread Crisps also come in a boxed gift set containing 2 flavours: The original Butter version, and Garlic. A free mug is included in the bundle, bearing the image of Hello Kitty and her teddy bear TIny Chum frolicking among flowers with the Eiffel Tower in the background.
#5: Hello Kitty French Love Gift Box with Big Cookies ($21.80)
More cookies! These large cookies come in 2 flavours, made using French Normandy cream and Michel cocoa powder respectively. Each red tin box contains 10 cookies, 5 in each flavour, which pair perfectly with a cup of hot tea.
#6: Hello Kitty Sun Cake Gold Ingot Gift Box with Porcelain Plate ($21.80)
Ah, the traditional Taiwanese sun cake, aka tai yang bing. According to Red Sakura, theirs are carefully handcrafted with a special method that prevents the crust from breaking easily, yet retains the flaky texture that we so love. Other than the kawaii packaging, this gift box set comes with a free plate that has the same festive design shown on the box!
These Red Sakura Hello Kitty Chinese New Year goodies were spotted at Prime supermarket, specifically the Century Square branch at Tampines. We dropped by one of the outlets at Yishun and didn’t find any, so they’re likely only stocked at selected locations. Let us know in the comments if you happen to spot any elsewhere!
