Michigan fans will finally get the opportunity to devour adorable Hello Kitty-themed treats. The wildly popular roving Hello Kitty Cafe van is wending its way into the Mitten in May for a one day-only event.

The officially licensed Sanrio food truck has been roaming the U.S. since 2014 delivering doses of cuteness in the form of Hello Kitty sweets and goodies. In that time it’s grown a reputation for attracting big lines wherever it drops anchor.

Metro Detroit’s cartoon cat experience will be hosted from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on May 27 at the Great Lakes Crossing Outlets near the AMC Theater.

Eater has reached out for more details on the treats, but similar events have featured three-piece Hello Kitty cookie sets, Sanrio character-inspired boxes of rainbow macrons, mini cakes, and bow-shaped bottles of water. There will also likely be Hello Kitty Cafe swag on sale for uber fans in need of something more lasting than a sugar high.

Though the Hello Kitty van’s visit is fleeting, Sanrio has found other ways to monopolize on their cartoon cat cafe’s popularity. The company recently debuted a permanent restaurant at a mall in Southern California.
