Japan does a lot of things well, especially in the design and marketing department. So of course it should come as no surprise that for a limited time KFC have teamed up with Moomin and you can get your fried chicken fix and take care of your Moomin needs all in one go! There are four set menus to choose from and 3 Moomin soup mug designs: I’d like the red and green mugs, please. And all just in time for Christmas! In case you’re wondering what Christmas has to do with KFC, here’s a great read from Smithsonian.com on the modern Japanese tradition. In addition to Moomin soup mugs, KFC Japan offers a “Smile Set” (think Happy Meal) for kids and of course it comes with all sorts of Moomin fun. There are 6 goods to choose from: a desktop calendar, snack tray, playing cards, cookie cutters, and 2 different coaster designs. If I were forced to eat junk food (doesn’t take much convincing, really), I could think of nothing better than Moomin and KFC–a match made in heaven (especially if we could get Zinger chicken involved)! What would be even more brilliant is if KFC were to bring Zinger chicken back (full menu) and offer the same Moomin cuteness in the UK and US. Never mind the ‘eat healthy’ campaigns–a happy heart is a healthy one, and KFC and Moomin do just that.
