Ojaru Candies

Product tie-ins are a big deal in Japan. We can find Crayon Shin-chan seaweed (nori) and Lupin III pachinko machines. Shown here are Tirol flavored chocolates (strawberry and peanut butter, among other flavors) with Ojaru-maru characters on the box and the plastic wrappers.

Ojaru-maru is a popular children's anime series running on NHK in the afternoons.

The candies are ok. Nothing special, but not that bad (milk chocolate over nougat).
