If you love adorable Japanese cartoons like Hello Kitty or Gudetama, you may also be a fan of the kawaii brown bear Rilakkuma, created by stationery company San-X. Like Kitty and Gudetama, Rilakkuma is featured on all kinds of merch including stationery, stuffed toys, clothing, and more. You can even find him on cookies! Case in point: These Rilakkuma sugar cookies from Juju Baked This!
These cute cookies are shaped just like the popular cartoon bear and to match his signature brown color, the cookies are coffee-flavored. You can also get a white, vanilla-flavored bear cookie modeled after Korilakkuma, another character from the Rilakkuma Seikatsu comic series. Order a box for yourself or give them as a gift to a friend who’s a fan of the Japanese characters. Don’t forget to take a pic for the ‘gram because they’re almost too cute to eat!
Juju Baked This also has cookies inspired by Sumikko Gurashi, another set of fictional characters created by San-X. They’ve got Shirkouma the polar bear in vanilla, Penguin? in matcha, Neko the cat in coffee, and Tonkatsu the pork cutlet in chocolate.
You can order Juju Baked This’ Rilakkuma and Sumikko Gurashi cookies by sending a message to their Instagram page.
