What is “Giri Choco”?
“Giri” is a Japanese word that implies obligation or duty, and “Choco” means chocolate. So, “Giri Choco” is a chocolate that girls give to boys on Valentine’s Day out of obligation.
Even if a girl is not romantically interested in a boy, if she feels bad that he hasn’t received chocolates, she will give him “Giri Choco”. There are no direct ways to tell if the chocolate is being given out of obligation or out of romantic interest, but you might be able to tell based on the quality or the price of the gift.
