A package of Hello Panda biscuits.

Hello Panda is a brand of Japanese biscuit, manufactured by Meiji Seika. Each biscuit consists of a small hollow shortbread layer, filled with either Milk cream, strawberry, or chocolate filling.[1]

It was first released in Japan during the Summer of 1979.[1] Printed on the biscuits are cartoon style depictions of giant pandas doing various activities, like fencing and archery, in a similar style to Koala's March cookies.[1]

Hello Panda was originally baked in Japan by Meiji Seika, but production later began in Singapore, Philippines and Indonesia. The Singapore bakery facilities started producing other Meiji products in 1974.[citation needed] The biscuits are exported to most developed countries, such as the United States, Australia and Canada.

The biscuits are commonly sold in a tall, hexagonal box with 2oz or 57.5g. In some countries, Hello Panda biscuits are available in small 21 and 35g aluminum pouches, as well as 350g boxes and 450g tins.[citation needed]
