Where to buy Japanese Panda Biscuits in Los Angeles?

  • 5

Hi,

I recently had a taste of this Japanese snack:

I don't know what it's called exactly, but I'm seeking a place to buy these? Is anyone aware of any stores?

Thank you in advance!

  1. i got mine at mitsuwa but you can also buy them at marukai and nijya.

    ah, i always wonder what they're saying in the comics...

    1. oh yeah, it's called saku saku panda (biscuits)
      the one in the link is milk chocolate. they also have caramel. i don't really recommend that flavor. it was too sweet imo, but my last box came with lots of frownie pandas at least lol!

      1. you can buy Panda chocolate biscuits online at amazon http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.htm...

          those aren't the same.

          although, for convenience and (possible) freshness factor, you can get hello panda biscuits (the one in the amazon links) at a variety of stores from japanese markets like mitsuwa, nijya, and marukai. to american markets like vons and ralphs, maybe albertsons too(?). it can also be found at some wal-mart. you can also find them commonly at any other asian market (chinese, vietnamese, and so on) like 99 ranch, hawaii market, etc....
          what i don't recommend are the hello kitty versions. those are just yuck!!!!

        2. The quality of these really depends on the freshness of the panda.
