|Yakult cultured milk drink|
So who hasn't enjoyed Yakult? That cultured milk drink; a sweet concotion with a slightly tart aftertaste. Oh! And they're full of Lactobacillus casei Shirota strain that aids in digestion and a host of other benefits.
I remember trips to the grocery store would not be complete without at least 2 packets of these babies since just like Pringles, "once you pop (one open), you can't stop!" I'd usually have 2 bottles at a time, all the while cursing the manufacturers, as I was nearing the end of all that milky goodness, for making these Yakult servings so dang small!
I never did outgrow my fondness for Yakult, apparently, so did the Hubby who has since replaced my Bro as my intense competitor for the last remaining bottle in a pack. More so now that we are enjoying not 1, not even 2, but 4 different flavors of Yakult here in Singapore!

There's the original. Of course, it's still a favorite.
But aside from that, Yakult in grape, orange and apple flavors are also offered here in the Lion City.

Serving sizes are a little bigger here too, with Yakult being available at 100ml bottles as compared to only 80ml sizes sold in the Philippines. A 5-pack container (containing 2 original flavors and 1 each of the 3 other variants) sells for S$2.85 (Php94*)
Now excuse me while I hide all the remaining Yakult from Hubby... J
*S$1 = Php33
Yakult cultured milk drinks are available in all leading grocery stores nation (Philippines) and island (Singapore)-wide.
