Hello Kitty Wine

I got a great surprise in my email from Whitney who wrote:

Hey Emily!!

I am in LOVE with HK! Just this past weekend, the girls and I went out for a night on the town. As you can imagine, finding HK WINE made for a fabulous night! It was the absolute cutest thing. There are four different wines, “Angel” White Wine, “Devil” Red Wine, Sweet Pink and Brut Rose Champagne. I had never seen them before and had to stock up, they were moderately priced and surprisingly tasty. The images of Hello Kitty on the wine labels were just adorable. She is so sassy!

Here’s the photo:

So, I did some more research as I’m sure many of you Kitty fans might want to get your hands on this wine. I found them available from Wine from the Boot priced from $18.99 to $30.99.

The wine was a collaboration between Italian winemaker Tenimenti Castelrotto and Italian fashion company Camomilla. They thought Hello Kitty would be perfect for the wine industry because of her popular brand recognition and because so many women who loved her as a child have grown up and may want more mature products. The tagline for the wine products is actually:  “Our favourite girl has grown up.”

Personally, I suspect a lot of women will try this out especially at girls night out wine tasting events, bachelorette parties and bridal showers. And, I suspect some of you reading this are already itching to get your hands on the cute pendant dangling off the bottle. 😉

Here’s a picture of the other 2 wine options:

Can I buy Hello Kitty items direct from Japan?

I know it irks me sometimes when you can get really unique Hello Kitty products but only in Japan. But, it looks like someone has found a neat idea to fix that.  I just heard about FlutterScape.com.  It’s a shopping site where all the products are from sellers in Japan (just everyday people) who are proficient in English.

Here are a few items that caught my eye (if the link doesn’t work, the item is probably not listed anymore):

Hello Kitty iPod/iPhone Speaker Dock – I just think this is so slick and cute looking at the same time.

Hello Kitty Color-A-Cookie

I just learned about a really fun Hello Kitty product called Hello Kitty Color-a-Cookie kit.  You get a kawaii Hello Kitty Cookie and markers to decorate your cookie.

This would be an awesome activity for a Hello Kitty birthday party…not that I needed to mention that to any mommies out there! 😉

According to Color-A-Cookies, they are available at supermarkets, convenience stores and gourmet stores all over the USA.  Typical retail prices are around $1.99 US.

If you’re interested in buying wholesale, you can contact Color-A-Cookie directly.

Hello Kitty Candies at Granville Island

At Granville Island, there’s a small candy shop that’s really old school. I mean you can scoop us some candies, put them in a bag and it gets weighed. Then, you get charged based on that. Love it! Anyways, while I was getting a few chewy candies for my son, I saw these Hello Kitty candies including 2 adorable pez dispensers (yet another throwback to my youth).

Hello Kitty Candies at T&T Chinatown

At T&T, a large Chinese supermarket in Vancouver, you can often find Hello Kitty candy and snacks.  Below are some photos of several I saw earlier this week.  I especially love the Hello Kitty tin which you could reuse for storing other things.  A lot of these items would be perfect for a Hello Kitty party too.

Hello Kitty Cookies

Over the holidays, I made gingerbread cookies with my 4 year old son.  I snuck in a few Hello Kitty cookie shapes too.  I’ve actually had this cookie cutter for over a year and this is the first time I made it…we bake more muffins than cookies.  Anyways, the Hello Kitty cookies turned out really cute!

Hello Kitty Birthday Party Goodies

I just got back from Burlington and Seattle in the US. I took lots of Hello Kitty pictures which I’ll be posting over the next while. My first stop was at Target in Burlington. Here are photos of items you could use for a Hello Kitty Birthday Party including: invitations, gift bags (and cute stuff to put in them), plates and more.

I found these boxes in the clearance section of Target.  I think they would make a great alternative to gift bags:

Hello Kitty Fortune Cookie Maker

I found this Hello Kitty fortune cookie maker kit at Target in Bellis Fair (Bellingham, WA). It even comes with adorable Hello Kitty fortune cookie carry boxes that look like houses. I can’t quite figure out what is Hello Kitty about the actual cookies. If someone has this kit, please let me know. 🙂
