Tirol Choco: 5 Standard Flavors of the Dagashi Chocolate
If you ask young Japanese people what chocolate candy they like, I guess many will probably answer “Tirol Choco (チロルチョコ)”, a long-selling chocolate candy known as Dagashi.
The product 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 Tirol chocolate is also cheap, sold for 10 to 40 yen (about 0.1 to 0.4 USD) per piece.
This Dagashi chocolate is famous for its rich variety of flavors, and the maker TIROL-CHOCO is said to newly create over 20 flavors every year.
Each convenience store chain in Japan sells its own store-limited flavors, most of which are very unique. Therefore, Tirol Choco is especially popular with children.
