Once upon a time there were Koala Yummies from my childhood, and then years later I became an adult and found Hello Panda and rejoiced. While I prefer the chocolate flavor, I still enjoy strawberry. I love the texture of the cookie bit on the outside, and that weird kind cold-feeling cream action once you bite into it. It was always difficult for me to eat adorable pandas doing adorable panda things, but I get over it pretty quickly because they're delicious.

Hi-Chews are literally the best candy that I never knew existed until recently. Now I can't stop buying them! Imagine Starburst, but with a more authentic fruit flavor and the chewiness of gum (except that you can swallow these). The green apple and mango flavors are hands down my favorites, but if I’m being 100% honest, every single flavor is fantastic,... You really can't get a more natural fruity flavor in a candy. I’ve found that Hi-Chews are generally cheaper to buy from Costco or wholesale candy stores (comes out to about $1 each for a pack of 10), just as a heads up.

I had these as a kid since I grew up in a Thai household and love them! Tamarind is a common fruit in Thailand that grows in almost everyone's backyard. The taste of these candies is sweet and sour similar to the fruit but with the texture of a hard candy. These are so satisfying. You can find them at Thai groceries.

I grew up with this. It brings back so many good memories and I missed them so much. The milky creamy flavour wrapped up in the edible rice paper. When I was little I thought it was magic that you could eat the paper, as I got older and witnessed my children eating them I saw the same gleem in their eyes. It is a family favourite .

I grew up on this since I was little. It is covered with chocolate and has like a cake consistency with marshmallow on the inside. It's a great little snack for chocolate lovers, especially people who love s'mores.

Just tried these last month and I love them. All it is is little cookie sticks that you dip in different flavored chocolates and cremes. Both the sticks and chocolate have a wonderful taste. I would highly recommend them. They may be hard to find for some people but you can try looking at your local Asian market or I've heard they have them at some Target stores or you can get them online. Just be careful if you get them online because some sites charge way too much.

I can't believe I have not bought this sooner in my life. I always had the original flavored and love every single bite of it. This smoked flavor just adds flavor to the plain dry squid to the next level. If you like dried squid, you will definitely enjoy the added smokiness in this package. They also make great snacks instead of the typical go-to ones such as cookies, chips or even candies.

I love these rice crackers! They're crispy, airy and have a slightly salty flavor balanced with a little bit of sugar at the top. The crackers are perfectly crunchy but melt in your mouth. They're not like your standard rice crackers - I think they blend up the rice and bake it instead of individual rice grains. Once you start one of these packets, you won't be able to stop.

I've had strawberry, original and mango for these drinks and I personally love them all! I've gotten really into these. I think they're delicious.

I'm so glad that these gummies are catching on! These lychee things are some of the most luscious gummies EVER. Some of my other favorite flavors are muscat, peach, and Ramune (Japanese soda)! I believe you can find most flavors on Amazon, but if you have an international supermarket anywhere near you, I'd recommend going to explore!

My very favorite Pocky flavor. The almond crunch combined with the creamy chocolate is just delicious. It's more expensive than most Pocky flavors and there's only four in a package, but it's worth it. Only panda Pocky could even come close to rivaling it, in my opinion.
