Anyone know if Japanese markets carry this product?

I love these things and use to buy them from Cost Plus until whatever scare occurred a few years ago based on them being a choking hazard for kids. I've heard people say that there are similar products available in Asian markets in LA again, but I haven't been able to find them. Or a source to order online would work too. I'd be so happy to be able to buy these again! Thanks!

  1. There was a thread re: this a week or so ago. IF they're still available, I'd check Mitsuwa market in Little Tokyo. They used to carry them.

    1. check out 99 Ranch, or Diho Market. If your in LA county go to China Town markets, their everywhere.

      1. I think you can find those at Wing Hop Fung in Chinatown.

          That's where I get them from as well.

            Oh, they're sooo good. It's the texture of gelatin, but has little chunks of fruit in it like mango and lychee. There's a thin layer of sugary syrup sort of surrounding it when you open the lid and then you basiclaly slurp it down. I survived on these at various points during law school...

              I've seen these around at various Chinese markets in Monterey Park recently - although I think they have them at a lot of asian markets... But I got hooked on the konnyaku jellies which I unfortunately _can't_ locate anywhere in LA... Same idea but konnyaku sweetened with fruit juice.
