Very delicious, to say the least. I don't remember disliking any of the flavors they made either. And, happily, these are still around! In fact, I have several boxes in my pantry right now, me and my wife both love them! And no worries, they haven't changed in taste one bit, taste just as good as they did back then.

Rejoice! Koala Yummies have indeed returned to the United States once more, with all their creme-filled and crunchy goodness intact! They are once more being marketed by the Lotte group from Japan, this time, though, they are being sold under the product name Koala March. There is also another brand that is, for all intents and purposes, the same thing, called Hello Panda--but they have different flavors such as chocolate cookie shell and chocolate filling. I got mine at my local Myers grocery store, but they can be found more predominantly in Oriential food shops by the pocky, having originated in Japan.

I loved these, now I settle for hello panda and hello kitty!

They are still around! But like Daniel said, they are called Koala march. You can get them in almost any Asian store. I LOVE THEM!

I bought some in Walmart just the other day. It is stocked with the Asian foods.

My favourite part was the cute little box the Yummies came in--I'd save it and keep pennies in it, like it was a bank. (What a weird kid.) I'm waiting for a genius to make a glorified Koala Yummy with hazelnut-biscotti-flavoured cookie outside and Nutella filling inside. How delicious would that be....(If anyone knows of something like this actually existing, let me know.)

Hey, BEN - check out World Market if there are any in your area. Alternately, check around to see if there are any Asian grocery stores - you will find them there, probably near the checkout.

You can also get them at cost plus world market.
Lynn - August 12, 2009 - Report this comment
I don't know what anyone is talking about. I have been looking for these and they are NO WHERE. I just looked up Cost Plus World Market's website and they don't have them on there either... and the website someone listed earlier just keeps saying it doesn't exist when I type it in. I miss these things. I wish they still made them =(

I did see these in an Asisan grocery, i think it was, a few years back, but they are VERY hard to find for the majority of us. Certainly not something you can pop out to the grocery and get. :(

reminds me of Hello Panda =]
Sarah L - December 22, 2009 - Report this comment
So ironic...I JUST bought some for my 4 year old son at the grocery store this weekend. I saw them and was so excited because I remember eating them as a kid. My husband didn't remember them. I now have proof. LOL.

I had forgotten about having these as a kid and was excited to see them again and to try them again. The ones I bought were the Hello Panda version of the cookies though. Just as tasty I must say. I got them in a comic book shop of all places. I came across this thread in trying to find out what the name of the koala version was... which I guess was Koala Yummies. Anyway, they are very good.

I also miss 3D Doritos, Pop Quiz popcorn, and Torengos. Anyone remember the 2nd two inparticular?

Koala Yummies are actually a product of Thailand, though people typically assume they are Japanese. Some time after 1984, they were renamed Koala's March, and can now be bought on multiple websites and I actually found them in a Shogun of all places! If you search "Lotte Koala's March" many distribution sites will pop up.

ohhhh I love these things!!! I was craving them forever and then about 2 years ago I found them at a craft store of all places called Pat Katan's in the Pittsburgh area. I think you can order them from the company itself though

I actually never saw these as a kid, but I gather they were marketed for a while in the 80s as Koala Yummies, and then pulled from shelves in the US for some reason. The first time I had them was in the late 90s, as imports with all the nutritional labeling and so on in Japanese. As other people have mentioned, they're made by the Lotte candy company, which continued to produce them throughout the 90s in Japan as "Koala no March" (Koala's March)-- you could buy them at a lot of Asian groceries. I actually used to buy them in bulk from shops in San Francisco's Chinatown. About ten years ago, I saw an English version starting to appear in large supermarket chains again, though they're usually kept with other Japanese snacks in the "Asian food" section (and extremely overpriced compared to how much the imported ones cost at Asian groceries, or used to, anyway. In the late 90s I used to be able to get a bunch of these, and Pocky, and these fruit chew things, for under $20 in Chinatown.)

Like your comment, A R, but be carefull, Chinatown is no longer a good thing to say. And, I am a "chinaman" with slanty eyes. "OHHH, Me Chinaman, and I built Railroad, ungaaadoahh!" just kidding. We do like these.

Were called Koala Yummies when they came out in the US in 1984. Now called Koala's March and are still available online. US flavors include Chocolate Creme, Strawberry Creme, and Creamy Milk. They support the Australian Koala Foundation

A R ...I understand the were pulled from the shelves by the almighty Nutrition Police...I remember when Bozo the clown used to feature these on his show out of Chicago on WGN. I bought them for years and enjoyed every one I ever ate .

I've tasted these knock offs, "Hello Panda- Double Chocolate", and they are nothing like the lovable Koala Yummies.
