Snacks and tidbits in osaka

Hi, anyone know where I can get snacks and tidbits, those popular ones and not popular ones at a cheaper price in Osaka?
Different shop varies in prices.
And recommendation for shops would be helpful. Thanks in advance!

read somewhere here that snacks and tidbits are much cheaper at the airport on departure than the usual shopping areas

anyone can confirm this and comment on the selection?

V simple.

Buy in airport usually tax-free (may have to hand carry)

Buy outside may or may not be tax free (u can check in)

-_-

Is it cheaper there?

Walk around.
Don Quinote tax free if exceeding certain amount, so are some other like Japan ‘Guardian / Watson’ .

There are Don Quinote vouchers online.
Don Quinote is not necessarily the cheapest.
Even different branches may have different offers for the same items.

U want damn nice ones, departmental stores.
U want cheap ones, its Don Don donki place.

Airport, in general, more ex. But still cheaper than sg.

Used to be unique to Osaka, seems that they added Kobe

If you want cheap snacks, can google for the nearest Aeon mall, most value for money.

One thing about snacks, once you bought them and reached SG, try to consume it as early as possible. The longer you wait, the taste could be different even though with good packaging and such.

Have a look at http://jpninfo.com/34747

i tried the 551 Horai

it looks like an ordinary bao we are so accustomed to seeing

but actually the meat filling tastes a little bit different

worth a try
