Keep reading to find out what they are.

Hello Panda

Remember when your mom would bring this home from the supermarket so you could take them to school in your lunch box the next day? We sure do! We can’t forget the original chocolate flavor, but now they make them in strawberry too! Let’s not forget the little panda pictures on each biscuit.


Moving on to candy – we really thought peeling off this red rapper to get to this chewy treat was like finding edible gold! These assorted toffee flavored sweets were both mouthwatering, and, of course, pocket-sized!


Choki Choki Chocolate Paste

If your school canteen had this sweet treat, we are all jealous! Choki Choki made of only quality chocolate and creamy milk whipped into a chocolate paste – the chocolate snack we all know and love. Did you have a race with your friends on who could finish their stick first?

Yupi Gummies

Gummy Bears WHO? We don’t know them! Who remembers making a mini-meal with Yupi pizza, burger, and hotdog gummies? We sure do. From the apple-flavored green ‘Lettuce’ to the sweet taste of the burger and hot dog buns, and pizza dough – this treat was both fun and flavorful.
