Remember when Japan got meat buns shaped like the Slime character from Dragon Quest? Well, now your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is getting his own bun, too.

Ditto for Hello Kitty. There will be Snoopy buns with custard in them, instead of meat. Starting March 14, they'll be available at Universal Studios Japan in Osaka for ¥400 a pop.

In Japanese, "niku-man" means "meat bun", so you can bet there's a witty "Spider-man" pun.
