I've just come from my favorite Vietnamese grocery store and found that they are out of the gummi hamburgers I use as prizes for my 8th grade class. Worse, when I asked Richard, the owner, he had no idea what I was talking about! I think he must have ordered them once and been using the same shipment ever since.

The candy I'm talking about comes from Hong Kong and is called "Happy Fun Burgers". Anyone know how I can buy this online?

      The Internet site for the "Munchie's Paradise" store on Mott St. is http://www.ajiichiban-usa.com/. I was in there the other day and believe I saw gummy hamburgers. They aren't listed on the site, although gummy hotdogs are. There is a customer service email option you might try to get more info.

        Yes, Aji Ichiban sells those gummi burgers (and hot dogs!). Got some myself at their Flushing store last week.

        One can sample most anything there. Terrific fun. I bought some dried rose blossoms on impulse after tasting - wonderful cherry-like flavor.

            New York. The Ahi Ichiban web site (see below) has a customer service number if you fail with any of the above-suggested sites.

              as silly as the site might seem, I have been able to get some great stuff from stupid.com. They have gummi burgers, gummi pizza and a variety pack. Not sure if these are exactly the same ones as the ones you are looking for.
