Cinnamoroll came in first in the 2020 Sanrio Character Ranking after more than 14 million votes were cast, and Sanrio is keeping him busy. The kawaii character has officially hooked up with the Hilton Hotel in Osaka for specially themed desserts. These sweets (which reference other Sanrio characters as well as Cinnamoroll) become available on June 4 at the hotel and will be around until September 12. They’re served in the afternoons, between 3 and 4:30.
With all their colors and creativity, they’re a feast for the eyes. And they look as if they’re a great feast for the taste buds, as well!
