Hello Kitty is the epitome of cute—at least according to culture trip, which reports that her whiskered face currently adorns more than 50,000 products in upwards of 60 countries worldwide. One thing that even the biggest cartoon character die-hards may not yet know, though, is that Hello Kitty has her own cafe on wheels, and it's coming to Boise.

The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck, a project debuted by Hello Kitty Parent company Sanrio in 2014, will make a stop at the Boise Towne Square Mall on Saturday, Aug. 18, where it will sling giant Hello Kitty Chef cookies and confetti popcorn alongside other bow-topped merchandise.

According to a Hello Kitty Cafe Press release, "popular items include thermal bottles, key-chains, [bow-shaped] bottled water, five-piece macaroon box set, bow headband and Hello Kitty Cafe t-shirts."

The truck will be parked from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. near H&M in Boise as part a cross-country tour, making the City of Trees its first Idaho stop to date.
