Hello Kitty Ice-Cream

It should be no surprise that Hello Kitty will Kittify anything sweet since there are already confectionery shops devoted to the evil feline. So I really should have been more prepared when the Hello Kitty ice-cream arrived at our house the other day:

Hello Kitty chocolate ice-cream

Hello Kitty ice-cream bow spoon

Hello Kitty ice-cream box

Normally I’m a huge fan of ice-cream. I would think that if anything was to be Hello Kittified and I would have to eat it, Hello Kitty ice-cream would be one of the least evil substances that I would have to consume. Of course, this was based on the bad assumption (yes, I should be well aware by now…) that Hello Kitty would simply place her face on the packaging and the ice-cream would taste like other ice-cream. Nowhere did I imagine I would have to eat the ice-cream with something other than a regular spoon. There is just something extra humiliating that takes all the joy out of even ice-cream when you have to eat ice-cream with a pink bow as a spoon.

Of course, my wife thinks that the bow spoon is the “cutest thing ever” and the crowning extra bit that makes the ice-cream so wonderful. This, of course, sent off the panic alarms because when you live in Hello Kitty Hell as long as I have, you know exactly where this type of comment is going. She is now convinced that all our meals will be more fulfilling and tasty if they are eaten with Hello Kitty utensils. As has been well established, Hello Kitty Hell can always get worse…

Update: And some more terrifying examples of Hello Kitty ice cream:

  1. WOW!! Actually I’ve seen this in Eva Air website… I really have to try this! Have to catch a Hello Kitty Eva Air Flight! πŸ˜‰

  2. Yes, I also noticed ‘Eva Air’ on the box. Are they selling HK ice cream now? Probably much like ‘duty free’ goods in other airlines. Eva Air seems expanding their HK airplan service. Amazing …

  3. I just want to brag and say that when I showed this post to my eight year-old daughter, her comment was: “That’s Creepy.”

    A dad has never been prouder. She would rather visit Homestarrunner.

  4. Indeed, the bow spoon is the cutest thing ever. Not only that, it’s a pretty good idea/twist of the knife. Really is great marketing.

    I wonder, Sanrio should totally hire you. Because they would literally listen to everything bad you have to say, and then do the exact OPPOSITE. Profit. Unless you’re willing to suck it up and same something nice about HK (knowing that they work by doing only the opposite of what you say). Evil win-win. *insert HK giggle*

  5. How can you really effectively scoop out the last tasty remnants of ice cream from that bow?

    Wait a minute, is that bow edible? It looks like it’s made of Sweetarts!

    It just looks nasty….

  6. You complain about every little thing. Do you realize how ridiculous you sound complaining about having to eat ice cream with bow spoon? Everyone know what a cute idea this is and it shows your total lack of understanding what is cute and what isn’t. The only logical reason you would be humiliated using the bow spoon is that you lack confidence in your manhood. This seems to be a consistent theme with all your blog writing and shows how insecure you really are about your masculinity. It’s sad when you have to insult a cartoon character just to make yourself feel more like a man. How pathetic can you get?

    You have to admit that ice cream and Hello Kitty are universally loved by everyone so they make a perrrrrfect combination. You trying to make it sound bad further confirms your total bias and incredibly juvenile understanding of what Hello Kitty means.

  7. Great! darlene is still with us. What a great comment she made. Sanrio should hire her to lead their Marketing. A year later, the outcomer would be either the evil feline took over the world or nobody is talking about the cat.
    Either way, we see the closure to the madness.

  8. It’s not that the spoon is a Bow that bothers me. It’s that it’s flat. It’s like those wooden Stick spoons they sometimes give you with Hagen Daz. Totally and utterly useless.

    It’s really hard NOT to be humiliated when you can’t even eat the ice cream because you can’t get it to stay on the spoon. The Pink bow design is just an extra stab in the gut.

  9. First off, the “ice cream” looks more like a chocolate moose (but I’ll conceed that might just be the photo). Secondly, the “spoon” is clearly far too big wrt the tub, or a kid’s mouth! That’s just basic ergonomics! Thirdly, where does Darlene, who’s clearly an 8yo trapped in a stroppy 15yo’s body, πŸ˜‰ get off with calling anyone else juvenile!?

  10. Kittyh!! I have to comment on this one……
    Ok darlene it is time for a little wake up. This is not a comic book universe where good triumphs over evil, it is the real world!
    I can only assume that you are at best 13 so you can live in your little world until you are 18 or so. Soon after that you have to face the real world with the rest of us or you are going to be a resident at the fruit cake funny farm… it is full of nuts!
    This is a PRODUCT churned out by a factory in the back waters of some asian country for a few cents, then some screen printer took an image of an that an artist created and smacked it on the top of the box and idiots like you will spend their hard earned money to buy this rubbish. THIS IS REALITY……
    You are just making the board of directors and the marketing department very wealthy. Hello Kitty is not real man it is all in your head

    ** My god people are stupid sometimes***
    Please read my other comments to you !!!!

  11. I just can’t help myself!!!!!

    Darlene, i have 1 word for you……..
    PROZAC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. Come on, don’t lie – these ice cream are from Taiwan and there is no way you can order them in Japan or the States.

  13. Well call me nut if you like, this isn’t the worst we have seen on this blog, and I find the bow/spoon kind of cute. I wouldn’t spend twice the amount of a rgular ice-cream to get the hello Kitty ice-cream, but this is cute.

  14. Call me nut, but that spoon/bow thing is kind of cute, and it’s by far not the worst thing we have seen on this blog.

    Now that said I would not want to pay twice the price for my icecream, just because it’s Hello Kitty

  15. yummy… i am chocoholic and i love hello kitty, perfect! that is awesome!!! i would definitely pay double for that5 than normal nasty icecream. thats nice

  16. Oh no..
    Oh no, oh no, Oh no..

    Why do I find myself wanting it? Why do I find myself thinking “That’s actually more cute than creepy” and WHY did I search the web for about 10 min trying to see if I could buy it someplace?!

    ..Oh my… >.<

  17. My had bought me HK chopsticks to eat with so this is really nothing to me, I’d still eat the ice-cream, besides you get to throw HK in the trash when you’re done with her. πŸ™‚

  18. Wow Ice-cream too! your website is cool you hate hello kitty though..i think its nice but sometimes it just goes overboard i wish they would just stick with toys and trinkets for children…and actually this world will be all hello kitty in the future..wats next houses in the shape of her head!!D=

  19. Hk has ruined our ice cream? That mouthless little bitch! Are you making any progress on getting rid of that stupid cat, Silent Bob?

    And for the last time, Darlene, shut the hell up! The rest of us really like this blog, and we don’t give one rat’s ass what you think!

  20. You know that does sound appetizing. I’d go for home grown ice cream any day or ice cream for that matter. πŸ™‚

    Just all the other ingredients you added makes it sound all the more better.

  21. OMFG

    they find an use for the hello kitty!! xD

    almost everyday appears something with the hello kittie’s face… -.-

  22. Come on, don’t lie – these ice cream are from Taiwan and there is no way you can order them in Japan or the States.

    Obviously you do not live with a Hello Kitty fanatic or you would know that it is never impossible (unfortunately) for them to get something that they really want…

  23. i kinda wonder darlene, when will you notice that this is hello kitty HELL, aka a blog that will put down hello kitty?
    its obvious that YOU haven’t gotten that into your mind!

    i’m actually not too horrified by it… except i prefer a normal spoon instead of the bow… its too flat
    i love ice cream, so i can’t resist… well unless it tastes like princess bubblegum… w/e crap like the toothpaste… then that would just be a waste of my money to get it
    not to mention regular ice cream would taste the same anyways…. ARGH now i want ice cream!!! ;_;

  24. > Obviously you do not live with a Hello Kitty fanatic …

    Don’t underestimate the power of fanatics, I guess.
    Sometime I wonder, if people can utilize those power (from fanatics), we could solve any problems that human race is facing today. What a waste of human of intelligence …

  25. I’ve used flat “spoons” for ice cream before, back in the day when British cinemas sold ice cream in the auditoria between the B feature and the A feature (gosh that dates me, to being able to remember the 1970s πŸ˜‰ ). They do work in principle, but don’t want to be any wider than a male thumb.

  26. The funny thing about this is you guys hate and complain about Hello Kitty, but Sanrio is making ten times more money then you for it. However, what’s even more curious is for people who say they hate Hello Kitty soo much you sure do keep up with its trends. Hmm… sounds like an undercover love to me. ^.^

  27. ‘It’s sad when you have to insult a cartoon character just to make yourself feel more like a man.’ Darlene, how sad do you think you are for idolising the same cartoon character? How old are you, anyway?

    I gree with Kitteh – that ice-cream looks more like chocolate mousse. Also, not only is the bow ‘spoon’ too flat and wide, but it isn’t long enough! You would have to nearly stick your hand in the tub to get to the bottom. How irritating would that be?

  28. firstly it has nothing to do with feeling like a man but it has everything to do with making you Hk worshipers feel like complete idiots. to come here and humiliate you and your small minds is what i look forward to everyday.

  29. To hello kitty hell.

    I to live in the same hell. If my daughter can smell it, wash with it, eat it, squeeze it, look at it, walk on it, sleep in or on it, brush with it or just about anything else she would. HK is like a virus that needs to be cured before it destroys any more little girls, not to mention the secondary infections on the parents.
    I rue the day that i bought her the first Evil K item in her inventory of torture.
    We live in a common hell

  30. Enough hating on Darlene, because the more attention you give her/it, the more she/it will spew.

    I’m an HK fan, but I’m sane. HK gets an “aww!” from me and that’s about it (sometimes my money, but not entire paychecks). REAL Sanrio/HK fans understand that it’s all about the joy derived from something that we find pleasing to our eyes. HK doesn’t ask for acceptance. HK doesn’t demand that everyone enjoy it. HK just is.

    If someone is made happy by HK, then maybe that someone will share that momentary happiness with a smile. Not by shoving HK down their throats. Darlene is not a true HK fan. She/It is angry and bitter that people disagree with her/its own point of view. Totally not what Hello Kitty represents. =)

    Mr. HKH, granted HK is being shoved into your every crevice, I hope that whether it be HK, Pucca, Miffy, Snoopy, or anything else; that you’re happy that your wife is happy. You’re perfectly allowed to disagree and bemoan her tastes, but as long as you enjoy her being happy over her being sad, then it’s fine.

    And awesome entertainment. =D Suffer away!

  31. As soon as I showed this to my sister, she said these people were nutbags. She hasn’t even seen some of the other crazzy HK stuff. Like oh I don’t kwon -those HK guns-.

  32. As soon as I showed this to my sister, she said these people were nutbags. She hasn’t even seen some of the other crazzy HK stuff.

  33. I don’t really see the problem, the ice cream is targeted for young children. (Remember flinstones push-up pops or even the ninja turtle ice cream bars?) It’s the same aspect in this category. So everyone get your dizzam panties out of a bunch.

    Go eat some Fruity Pebbles! (Oh crap, more flinstones stuff. They better sue since Hello Kitty has a cereal too! @[email protected])

  34. @J’Lostein:
    LMAO SEWER!!! Mr. HKH chuck it AT ONCE its sewer flavoured πŸ˜€

    @kittywhitee:
    well you see.. his WIFE bought it… and i believe she’s not a child… so it is a problem… since she’s not supposed to be the one targeted…

  35. Well, not only that, but some people have pointed out the irony is that why would she hawk food, since she doesn’t have a mouth.

    Plus, amongst many other things, you do NEED a mouth at some point.

  36. For Puppy;

    Yes, I know his wife got it, but everyone is up in arms that even exists. Which is pitiful in my opinion.

    SOME Hello Kitty things are targeted for a more adult audience anyway. Cute never goes out of style, even when you’re an adult. Plain and SIMPLE.

    It’s sick and sad that he has to consider it ‘hell’, if it really was something that was so out of hand and sick… they would’ve been divorced.

    I know my strong and valid points hurt… but please get over it. πŸ™

  37. well it is annoying if everything you have is hello kitty when you don’t even like that character

    henceforth the blog to let out his annoyance

  38. Like I said, if it was such a big deal. They would be divorced. You sucking up isn’t going to get you anywhere special.

    Funny how haters come to this site daily.

    Now who’s more obsessed….

  39. Domo origato kamichan. I hate the badly done themed marketting tat, but there is HK stuff that I’d buy for a hypothetical HK fan girlfriend, but that’s in the same sort of way there’s one girl I’m friends with but not boyfriend of that, if I was boyfriend of, I’d buy a plush lobster toy (if she reads this, she’ll probably guess who she is).

    Kittywhitee, this site is frequently funny, and posts some good (meaning well-executed) fan art. The only people who’re obsessive are the ones who can’t admit that even Sanrio haters like me can want to visit a site that offers stuff like this!

  40. “You have to admit that ice cream and Hello Kitty are universally loved by everyone so they make a perrrrrfect combination.”
    Ummm… speak for thyself… freak. I don’t have to admit anything, niether does 3/4 of the other sane people who come here…
    I am slowly growing tired HK… because of people who think everything should be HelloKittyfied… NO! Not everything is better just because you slap her face and/or name on it!

    Kitteh!! and andophiroxia: glad to see you are still here πŸ™‚
    Sorry I’ve been absent, getting ready for the move, and sold a crapload of HK stuff online! It’s like going to AA… πŸ™‚
    I just had to get over myself and think ‘Do I want the HK crap that a 10-year-old would covet sitting here collecting dust or the $$$$ to buy sweet stuff for the apartment?’…
    Kitteh!!: I must know who Loster girl is πŸ˜‰

  41. “Lobster Girl” is from Cornwall. That’s all I’m saying, because it’s not fair on her to say too much about her without knowing what sort of public profile she has.

  42. Hello Kitty is gonna kill us! What if one day, there will be hello kitty computer monitors that are lcd and if ur keyboard is hello kitty, that would be deadly. Even i cant eat that Hello Kitty ice cream with the bow spoon, don’t eat the ice cream, its the body of mocha in the chocolate ice cream(mocha was killed by hello kitty and her dead body went into the ice cream), who knows, cinnamonroll’s body will be in the vanilla flavor and it will be with blood! KILL HELLO KITTY! WE MUST PLACE HER IN ICE CREAM AND THROW HER IN THE PIT OF DEATH!!!

  43. I don’t think the ice cream itself is that bad, though eating with a flat bow/spoon would be kind of hard. And the price would be exorbitant, of course.

    Does anyone else feel amazed that Darlene actually admits that Hello Kitty is a cartoon character?

  44. For some odd reason seeing how I’m not a fan of HK… I really want that icecream! Bow spoon or not! I admit that that icecream looks good!

    And knowing that Hk is probably dowsed with loads of sugar- I think it’ll taste pretty good.

  45. hey darlene, get over it. some people hear think you are approx. 13 but i, being that age myself, must state that never in my life have i acted like that and i really don’t appreciate being compared to darlene. i’m estimating she’s some really old chick with like 500 cats. good guess?

  46. ok…so i have followed this blog for about a year and have been too afraid to ever post. See, my husband is just like you and I am…like your wife. My poor husband has to drive a car with HK floor mats (only because they didnt fit my car) and has a HK bathroom. All 3 of our daughters’ rooms are done in HK and I am now typing this on our HK computer on my HK desk in my HK office. That is just the beginning….
    I WANT THAT ICE CREAM!!! THEY NEED THIS AVAILABLE IN THE STATES!!!!!!!! I WOULD DO ANYTHING TO GET IT!

  47. oh my gosh..you at least have to admit that for a girl..the bow as a spoon is super cute. im not OBSESSED with hello kitty but i do love her.. even if i didn’t this ice cream is freakin cute

  48. Ommmgggggg I want this ice cream sooooo bad!!!!

    I searched online for 20 minutes, looking for it
    but haven’t been able to find it.

    Can someone or mr. Hkh tell me where to buy this????

  49. Can someone please tell me where to get this (the pink one with the sprinkly things) I really want to try it, it looks yummy!!! The other ones look good too. 0_0 please tell me!!!!!!!!

  50. ohhh i love the spoon! the bow is more addictive than hk itself,even though the icecream looks kittylicious! aloha!my dear kitty hater πŸ™‚
