Hello Kitty, the iconic cartoon cat designed by Japanese company Sanrio, is now selling beer in China.

The adorable kitten, known for gracing snack cakes and children’s wardrobes, now has its own fruit-flavored beer, which is sold exclusively in China.

The Hello Kitty brew, licensed by the Shanghai KT trading company and made by Taiwanese beer maker Long Chuan, comes in at least six tropical flavors, from passion fruit to banana.

While the beers are only 2.3 percent alcohol by volume, they are so sweet that it is easy to consume too many.

This is so wrong on so many levels it’s really quite hard to imagine. I agree with Mr. Jones’ facial expression. It sums up my reaction perfectly.

Wonderful. Now kids can start drinking in nursery school and the marketers will have a lot of new customers addicted to their product. Think of that cute colorful sales curve rising. That’s all that counts.

Not to mention, it puts a serious dent in my plan to market Hello Kitty nicotine patches at elementary schools.

It's nothing new, really. Here's a German Becks bottle with Hello Kitty:

And a "special reserve" wine dated 2006.

Welch’s used to make wine and the Flintstones advertised it on television in the 1960s. The Flintstones also used to advertise Winston cigarettes.

Geez, that's not even "3.2 beer".

Hell, even Corona Lite is 4.5%. WTF.

"Banana beer". Yikes. This is a travesty. I'm gonna go have a Guinness.

I think you may have preferred me to say, “Check out this Hello Kitty gun, and don’t forget to buy the matching taser.”.

I wasn’t saying the gun was a taser.
