Even more excitingly, each pack of candy comes with collectable original stickers showing Kimetsu no Yaiba’s main characters. These stickers can only be collected from packs of Puccho candy, meaning fans can look forward to enjoying each pack even more!
The candy packaging has two design types. One features Tanjiro and Nezuko, the other Inousuke and Zenitsu. Both versions also include the Puccho candy mascot, Puccho-kun, in the top corners dressed adorably like the main characters appearing below on the front of the packages.
