Many Filipinos love drinking Yakult, which is fermented milk mixed with 8 billion live lactobacillus shirota strain.These bacteria are supposedly good for your tummy, and it is even the main selling point of Yakult’s advertisements. This isn’t the reason why I drink Yakult though. I just like it because it tastes good.
Some people don’t like Yakult because it smells bad. The technique to appreciating Yakult is to drink it, not smell it. It’s liquid people, and liquid is not made for nasal consumption.
In the past, I’ve wondered why they didn’t make Yakult in large bottles. Then, I read an article that said that if Yakult came in larger bottles, there would be a tendency for people to not finish the contents and leave the bottle open. Once the bottle was left open, the good bacteria would turn into bad bacteria. To avoid this, Yakult opted for smaller bottles.
These small bottles do not satisfy my thirst for Yakult, so what I do is I buy a whole pack and drink them all up.
How about you? Do you like Yakult too? Please leave a comment below!
