Quite a while ago, Kirin decided to advertise it's green tea 'namacha' using a panda character. See http://www.beverage.co.jp/product/cm/namacya/ for an TV ad using the 'pecology panda.' Originally the panda was a hand puppet with a kind of flip-top head, which became so popular through various campaigns that fake pecology panda hand puppets were being sold everywhere.
Anyway, to cut the story short, this is just very cute. A choux bun store that has (although a bit late) jumped on pecology panda's bandwagon. They don't half taste bad too. Yes, I do eat.
