▲ When you pop out a piece, you will see either a double circle, circle, or triangle printed on the wrapper. What does this all mean you may ask. In Japan, a double circle means “best.” A regular circle means “good” and a triangle means “so-so.” The x symbol, called “batsu” in Japanese, means “no good.”
