I used to live in Taiwan as a kid and would have these Kuai Kuai corn puffs:

Has anyone seen these for sale in Los Angeles?

Thanks!

    Hi -- thanks for the great leads everyone! I didn't expect anyone to know the answer to this so i'm pleasantly surprised. You all are the best! Also - if anyone knows of a place in Chinatown that might have Kuai Kuai, pls let me know. Otherwise it's off to the closest 99 Ranch. Can't wait. :)

      I've seen those at 99 Ranch Market as well.
      I love the five spices flavor one.

        Dunno about 99 or any of the other Chinese markets, but there is a shop on the bottom floor of the Focus Plaza in SGV (SW corner of Valley and Del Mar) that carries various jerky items and snacks. I've seen them there a while back.

        I used to dig these too. Sweet and salty, much better than shrimp chips.

          99 Ranch like other have posted is a good place to look. Also, there's a convenience store in Arcadia in the HSBC plaza on Baldwin (across from Din Tai Fung) that's modeled after the stores in Taiwan so you might want to check that out if you get the chance

            They definitely have it at any location of the 99 Ranch Market.
