Limited edition Kirby snacks are now available at the Japanese convenience store chain, Lawson. Lawson is selling two items: a “candy-flavored” drink and a frozen mochi. Additionally, Lawson is selling exclusive Kirby keychains and holding a Twitter giveaway to promote the collaboration.

The limited goods are available at participating Lawson convenience stores. It’s important to note that the Kirby snacks will not be sold at Natural Lawson locations.

First up is the “candy-flavored” drink, which can be found in the refrigerated section. The flavor is actually peach milk, but it’s supposed to represent the invincibility candy from the Kirby series. The designs on the cups come in six variations, and one of them is a secret. Each drink costs 168 yen (including tax). Next of the Kirby food is the frozen mochi. They are strawberry and milk flavor and priced at 130 yen (including tax).

Lawson also has exclusive acrylic keychains in its comic books section. They come in a pack of two, and there are two varieties of the two-pack, totaling four keychains. Additionally, HMV&BOOKS online is taking pre-orders. However, these orders will ship out starting February 4, 2021.

Furthermore, Lawson’s official Twitter account is running a promotion where you can win a three-pack of squishy Kirby character cushions. To enter, you need to follow the account and quote tweet with the hashtag #ローソン星のカービィ. Those interested can enter through November 30, 2020 (JST).

If you can’t satisfy your Kirby hunger, don’t forget the Kirby Cafe will add new items to its menu for winter. Until then, the Kirby snacks and merchandise are available now at Lawson convenience stores in Japan.
