Melona bars in L.A.? Anyone know where?

I got hooked on these in Hawaii on an extended stay, but haven't found them in any of the big Asian markets yet. Anyone seen them? If you haven't tried them, you're in for a treat...if you can find them.

  1. I'm pretty sure I've gotten them in both the Little Tokyo Marketplace and Han Nam Chain on Olympic. If they don't have them then they will certainly have Hai Tai melon bars. I think I prefer the Hai Tai but would be hard-pressed to tell the difference. I usually go for whichever is on sale.

    1. Little Tokyo market place. I think they're okay, not drive for 60 minutes to buy. fabulous.

      1. Most large Korean markets have them. I thought I saw them at HK Market on Western, but they are probably found at Assi Market, Han Nam, and the Galleria as well.

        1. They're at Marukai Market - a Haw'n Japanese market in GArdena - corner of Western and the end of the 91 fwy. I used to drive all the way from Riverside to get our stash since my husband can eat 3-4 a night. But now there's a Korean market in Redlands that has them too.

          1. Add Mitsuwa to the list. I believe Nijiya has them too.
