I had been away from Japan for so long until I came back two years ago that I didn’t know about this brand of soy milk. Meredith introduced me to it. They are tasty! She suggested that I would write a post on Japanese soy milk. Good idea.
I’m a big fan of “Silk”. My stomach doesn’t do so well with cow’s milk, but I used to not like soy milk until I was introduced to “Silk”. Then I fell in love with it. I hope that you will have the same experience with this Japanese soy milk. So, I purchased all these soy milks and brought them to Meredith’s house and we had tasting of soy milk, like wine tasting. Gotta love tasting, right?
Before I tell you which we liked, I will explain what is what.
麦芽コーヒー (Top left) Malt coffee (Coffee taste made out of malt)
無調整豆乳 (Top middle) Plain Soy Milk
ココア (Top right) Cocoa (Chocolate)
調整豆乳 (Bottom left) Sugar added (Adjusted)
フルーツミックス (Bottom second from the left) Fruits mix
抹茶 (Bottom third from the left) Matcha/Green Tea
ごま (Bottom right) Sesame
My favorite: Matcha/Green Tea
Meredith’s favorite: Coffee and Sugar added ones
I liked Cocoa, Fruits Mix and Sesame as well, but Meredith didn’t like Fruits Mix and Sesame so much. Fruits Mix tasted like medicine to her. Sesame soy milk is like sweet sesame paste with soy milk, which Meredith wasn’t so crazy about, but I liked it. If you have tried sesame ice cream and liked it, I think that you will like the sesame flavor soy milk.
You can buy these types of soy milk at almost any supermarkets in Japan. They usually cost around 80 or 90 yen each. Inexpensive and healthy. Why not try them out if you are into healthy stuff? What is your favorite?
