This Summer, Treat Yourself With Neko Atsume Cookies

Rebecca OConnell

For the uninformed, Neko Atsume is a simple virtual pet game that's similar to a Tamagotchi, but with more pets and less responsibility. The user only needs to set out food and toys and watch as the cats come visit their virtual backyard. And that simplicity has won the app plenty of fans.

According to RocketNews24, Japanese gift store Lawson is tapping into that love with a collection of cookies that resemble the cats in the game, including pets named "Snowball," "Pepper," and "Peaches." The set, which costs 3240 yen (about $30), also comes with small, circular cookies shaped like some of the balls featured in the game.

The collection is available for shipping starting in late June.
