Calpis Water

Posted in Lifestyle

Ooh, is this the first Japanese drink I’ve reviewed on my blog?  I think it is!  Read on to find out my thoughts on the Calpis Water.

Calpis Water - Famous in Japan

After trying the Calpis Soda Gummies and the Calpis Marshmallows, Sami Spoon kindly told me that I could get a drink version in the huge Chinese supermarket in Leeds.  Thanks, Sami!  When I took a trip to Leeds I was delighted to spot it chilling in the fridges and I bought it.  It is for the blog after all…

Due to my blogging break, this drink has been sitting in my fridge for a few months now *guilty face*.   Anyway, let’s get it cracked open and get it supped.

Calpis Water -- Famous in Japan

To be honest, I had no idea what to expect with the Calpis Water.  I had visions of a sweet and sickly milky tasting drink.  Similar in taste to the gummies, I would quickly throw this drink away and curse it all over my blog.   But in fact, I was surprised…

The Calpis Water tastes likewell, a very sweet water.   The milk aspect of the drink that I was fearing isn’t that noticeable.   If I hadn’t heard  of Calpis before and I was trying this drink I would probably think this was sugar and water.

The scent and taste remind me of the Calpis Marshmallows more than the Calpis Soda Gummies, which is a relief I have to say.  Overall, the Calpis Water is a refreshing, thirst quenching drink.   I feel so silly; I had nothing to be afraid of!  I’ve gone from dreading trying it, to actually enjoying it.  I know I will be trying it again, and I’ll be racing back to the Chinese supermarket to go find a few more cans.   Better make some more room in the fridge….

What Japanese drink should I try next? I think it’s time for me to try ramune!

    Oh wow, I was surprised by your reaction!
    When I read “Thanks Sami” I thought “will she be thanking me when she’s had a sip??” Haha
    Maybe I should give it another try, I too have fallen in love with some Calpis candies but the only time I tried the drink it was really gross! :O

      Did you try the Calpis Soda or the Water? I think I will despise the soda as it will be like fizzy milk :| but this honestly was really nice! xx
