Fujiya character PEKO and HELLO KITTY are hugging as the best friends on Milky Chocolate. It’s a special 40th anniversary collaborate package for HELLO KITTY.

Surprisingly, KITTY got human-like brown hair and showing her mouth with tiny tongue!
However, you’d know the secret when opening the package – she is just putting a brown haired wig and her mouth is “makeup”.

There’s no KITTY mold chocolate but all of these milky and strawberry cream filled chocolate candies are cute.
