Just like the Jurokucha in the last blog post, we have started a sale for Calpico on six-packs as well. Each comes in a clear bag with its own logo, and the bags are perfect for the beach or other summer outings.

Calpico is a refreshing drink with a fresh flavor created from freshly squeezed Japanese milk and the fermentation of lactic acid bacteria, which is also found in yogurt and other foods that aid digestion, and yeast that have been passed down for 100 years. It has a smooth, creamy texture and a sweet, tangy, and fruity flavor with a hint of citrus. It is a globally popular beverage that aims not only for physical health but also for mental health, symbolized by the smiles that its delicious taste brings. There are lots of Calpico fans all over the world - in more than 25 countries!

Original Flavor is the most authentic flavor which has a unique twist on the classic citrus flavor.

Melon Flavor is the newest flavor from a few years ago which is crisp and cool with a hint of sweetness.

Lychee Flavor has an exotic flavor with a refreshing taste. The taste of lychee makes it perfect for hot summer days.

White Peach Flavor is sweet and smooth with a delicate finish. The scent and taste of white peach is loved by everyone.
