The Hello Kitty sprinkle mug will be available when the Hello Kitty Cafe truck makes a stop on Saturday, March 7, in Albuquerque.

It’s March, so it’s time for the Hello Kitty Cafe truck to roll through Albuquerque.

For the third straight year, the traveling shop will make a stop at Albuquerque Uptown, 2200 Louisiana NE, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, March 7.

According to organizers, the mobile cafe will be in the courtyard near California Pizza Kitchen. It also only accepts credit and debit cards.

According to a press release, fans of Hello Kitty can look forward to an array of exclusive goodies and limited-edition collectibles, including:

●Sprinkle Mugs

●Madeleine Sets

●Hello Kitty Cafe Canvas Totes

●Enamel Pin Sets (in 2 styles)

●Other best-selling items include: stainless steel thermal bottles, sprinkle T-shirts, bow shaped water bottles, giant Hello Kitty Cafe chef cookies and a cafe lunchbox with confetti popcorn.

Since the Hello Kitty Cafe Truck made its debut in October 2014 as part of Sanrio’s first food-related venture, the cafe on wheels has delighted thousands of fans from all over the U.S., drawing crowds of up to hundreds of Hello Kitty lovers at each stop.

To date, two Hello Kitty Cafe trucks have traveled to more than 100 cities across both coasts — from Los Angeles, Seattle and Houston— to Chicago, New York and Miami.
