— November 4, 2018 — Lifestyle
With Halloween over and the Christmas season coming up, Sugarfina has debuted an adorable new Hello Kitty holiday collection. Packaged in a holiday-appropriate gingerbread house box, the new line is an excellent gift option.

Sugarfina's new Hello Kitty holiday collection is a festive candy set that features jelly beans, chocolate caramels, gummies, and more. Each comes in a tiny bento box with the face of a Hello Kitty or other Sanrio characters on the front. The tiny boxes fit into a larger gingerbread house-shaped box for the ultimate Christmas packaging.

The festive collection is already available in-store and online, with special events planned to let fans sample the new candies and even take photos with Hello Kitty at different Sugarfina locations.
