PHOTOS: Power-Up Mushroom Sippers and Light-Up Super Star Popcorn Bucket Arrive Ahead of Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Hollywood

On a recent visit to the newly opened Super Nintendo World Store at Universal CityWalk Hollywood, we were amazed to find the Mushroom sippers were available for purchase, the first time we’ve seen them outside of Japan! We also found the fun light-up Super Star popcorn bucket for sale as well, fresh off the boat.

As adorable as the red and green mushroom sippers are they become genuinely terrifying when you have to take off the lid. The flesh color stem is where the beverage goes and it really ruins the illusion when you have to refill the sipper.

The popcorn bucket also has the same style of carrying strap as the Mushroom collectible sippers, only this one is red.

The Super Star popcorn bucket is not inexpensive. It costs $39.99, and with that price, you only get unlimited refills on the day of purchase. Sadly Universal Studios Hollywood doesn’t have the delicious Mushroom Cream and Caramel Peach popcorn flavors available in Japan.
