For fans of all that's cute, Hello Kitty truck is the cat's meow
J Thoendell stashed this in Food
In the realm of iconic so-cute-you'll-scream felines, long before the lolcat stalked the Internet in captioned kitten glory, there was the li'l cat -- a mysteriously mouthless, bow-bedecked bobtail that first graced a Japanese coin purse 40 years ago.
But those who think Hello Kitty's star-power has dimmed over the decades would have been chagrined to see the snaking, snail-slow line that formed at Santana Row on Sunday, where her fans flocked to snag sweets and swag from the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck at its South Bay debut.
"Oh, my god, thank you so much!" said a squealing, gasping Tina Chen, 45, as she received three doughnuts ($10) water bottles ($3 each), a T-shirt ($25) and a (free) bag from one of two ports in the truck, quickly and giddily moving aside so others could have their turn.
