5 Standard Flavors of Tirol Choco Chocolate Candy
If you ask young Japanese people what chocolate candy they like, I think many will probably answer “Tirol Choco (チロルチョコ)”, a long-selling chocolate candy known as a Dagashi.
The Japanese chocolate candy, Tirol Choco is produced and sold by the Japanese company with the same name as its own TIROL-CHOCO CO., LTD.
Since “Dagashi (駄菓子)” is the generic name for cheap (and unique) Japanese snacks and candies, the chocolate candy, Tirol Choco is also cheap, being sold for about 10 to 40 yen (about 0.1 to 0.4 USD) per piece in Japan.
The Tirol Chocolate is famous for its rich varieties, and the maker TIROL-CHOCO is said to newly create over 20 flavors every year.
Every and each convenience store chain in Japan sells their store limited flavors, most of which are very unique. Thus, the chocolate candy, Tirol Choco is especially popular with children.
5 Flavors of Assorted Tirol Chocolate Variety Pack
Not only kids, but many Japanese adults also love the chocolate candy Tirol Choco, and I’m among them. In fact, the other day I went to a drugstore near my house and bought the assorted Tirol Chocolate Variety Pack shown above.
Made up of 5 standard flavors, the product contains 30 small pieces of individually wrapped Tirol Choco in total, and each flavor has features as follows.
