Will Miss #165 - Tirol candies

Since starting my Japanese snack reviews blog, I've formed an ambivalent relationship with Tirol candies. I love their concept, which is very small, affordable bits of candy with collectible wrappers that they provide a gallery of on their web site. I also love some of the flavors, but I think that their variety packs of non-premium candies are often pretty crappy and they have a bad habit of putting one interesting flavor in with a bunch of boring ones to make you buy a whole bunch to get one you want.

All ambivalence aside, I'll miss sampling these unique candies, seeing the various wrapper designs they come up with, and being grateful for their small portions and low price.
