The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck arrived at Ala Moana Center today, and hundreds of fans turned up to stand in line for edibles and merchandise.

The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck arrived at Ala Moana Center this morning for its first appearance in Hawaii, stationed in front of the Sanrio store.

The truck will be serving sweet treats from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. through June 19, although it's best to go as early as possible, because cafe edibles were shipped over along with the truck, and once they sell out, supplies can't be replenished.

Special items offered are a five-piece macaron box set ($15) with one surprise Sanrio character macaron inside, a three-piece Hello Kitty cookie set ($12), and a four-pack of mini cakes ($15). In addition to the goodies, a Hello Kitty Cafe mug ($13), pink Hello Kitty Cafe T-shirt ($25), pink bow-shaped water bottle ($4) and puffy bow headband ($30) will be available.

The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck debuted at Hello Kitty Con in October 2014 and has been rolling up to festivals and events nationwide ever since, spreading Sanrio’s message of happiness, friendship and fun. Shipping the truck over was costly, but the company didn't want to let geography exclude Hawaii from being part of the fun.

Some of the items included a three-piece cookie set, coffee mug and bow-shaped water bottle.
