Lawson convenience stores across Japan are currently offering traditional Japanese desserts based on video game protagonist Kirby and enemy Waddle Dee, both part of the 25-year-old Kirby franchise.

The desserts, known as “Tabemas Kirby”, are the latest entries in the “Tabemas” series of traditional Japanese sweets based on characters from Bandai’s candy toy division. The soft desserts, made with traditional Japanese sweets techniques, are modeled after the round bodies of characters Kirby and Waddle Dee, and reproduce iconic details like the characters’ elongated eyes.

The Kirby dessert is filled with peach-flavored red bean paste, while the Waddle Dee dessert contains caramel-flavored red bean paste. Each dessert is made to the high standards typical of traditional Japanese confectionary, resulting in a sweet treat for Kirby fans.

The desserts are available for 395 yen, tax included.
