Food trucks have been a big deal for a while. Here in Orlando, they were really, really popular a couple years ago, and there are fewer now.
But who could resist checking out a food truck with a cat theme? Not me! So I went out to see the Hello Kitty Cafe food truck.
Unlike most food trucks I have seen, this is more of an oversized, stretched van. Or a small camper. They don’t cook anything inside, so it doesn’t have the same size inside that food trucks that include various kitchen equipment.
They sell bottles of water shaped like bows and various cookies to eat. In addition to their foodstuffs, they also sell mugs and t-shirts.
I wanted to buy some of the special “Hello Kitty for President” cookies they promised to have, but I hadn’t counted on the size of the crowd. There were hundreds and hundreds of people lined up before the truck even opened for the morning!
I couldn’t spend my whole day waiting to buy a cookie, so I had to leave emptyhanded.
On the way back to my car, I spotted this car parked nearby. I suspect the owner of this car did stand through that whole line to buy special Hello Kitty memorabilia!
