I got "Calpis-ed"!

Some time back Lina posted about a drink from Japan, Calpis. Of course it got me all excited! I wanted to try it! I was waiting to see one day if I go to Jusco to buy which is where Lina bought hers from. But I didn’t go to Jusco… and I was eager to try (lina’s fault for making me want it so much! :P)!

One day I went to USJ 10, Taipan and I saw 100¥en shop.

Ok I was bored after dinner with my colleague so I figured lets go in to take a look around. Then it came to me when I walked in and saw their fridge of drinks! Calpis… (insert zombie sound here for brains and change it to Calpis). First thing I searched for, Calpis Water. Oh to my Delight!

I got Calpis Water and a Calpis Soda!

Calpis Water is made of Yogurt and Citric Acid mixture (of course with other stuffs that I don’t know of). Calpis tasted so yummy! Milk-ish, Sweet, yet slightly Sour-ish (Well, least I think so hahaha) and of course slightly carbonated, only slightly(in my opinion-lah)! Calpis Soda is mixture of Lactose and Citric Acid (I think) and this one is much more carbonated compared to Calpis Water. Both still taste delicious nonetheless! I enjoyed it definitely… I want more… It was selling for RM5.90 in the shop for the 500ml bottle. No they got no bigger bottle T.T

Then I got Cream Collon.

The packaging inside.

The content inside the packaging!

This is one of my childhood snacks. I used to love it when I was a child and always pester my mommy to buy them for me haha. This is vanilla flavored and only flavor there is in the shop. I still prefer Strawberry :P. This was also RM5.90, kind of expensive in my opinion, but for a genuine Japan product it is worth it once in a while ^_^.

Lina! I tried Calpis Drinks! I love it a lot and now I want more! RAWR! Thank you for introducing Calpis Drink to me ^__^. For those who love milk, this is something you should not miss out :) (I wonder if I will get any commission for promoting Calpis Water for them haha!). Now I need to search for their flavored ones…

Edited : For those who wants to find their store in Malaysia please click here. SK and Lina has mentioned other places too like, Isetan and Shojikiya would carry Calpis too :).

Mei Teng said...

Oh I remember cream collon. Used to love eating it when I was a child. Nowadays, I don't crave for it.

suituapui said...

We have one 100¥en shop here too. Never been there as it's on the other side of the road...from the direction I always go. Have to go all the way up to the junction and come down again. I hear the things are expensive...and they sell food too - also expensive and not that great! That's why I never bother to drop by.

reanaclaire said...

since u mentioned it, i will go try this drink.. over here ipoh, there is also one branch too..

Willie a.k.a Reptoz said...

Oh! They have one over here too.

Rose Belle said...

My daughters can't have enough of Calpis drinks. They over drink them whenever I buy them. Caplis is sooo addictive! Korean have a similar version too. Have you tried carbonated Calpis? They have it in melon and strawberry flavors. I prefer the original non-carbonated version.

lina said...

Hahahaha!!!! So happy to hear you tried Calpis! Yeay!

lina said...

After this, try the fruit flavoured one pulak. Got grape, peach, lemon, etc... They are all nice.

But don't drink too much. It'll cause serious dent to your wallet! LOL

lina said...

Hmmm... wonder whether got Calpis at Daiso or not. Hehehe

Anyways, I quite cheapo, so I buy my Calpis at the discounted corner in Jusco Supermarket at RM3.95. Almost expired (1 month) Calpis. Huhuhu

Gabriel said...

smallkucing said...

I love Creme Collon when I wasyoung. Love the chocolate ones

ladyviral said...

xin : Oh you should! This is really nice!

ladyviral said...

Mei Teng : I don't crave for them either.. but those that I usually eat when I was young is all made from Indonesia. So when I saw this made from Japan! So I got one :P.

ladyviral said...

suituapui : Well, nothing that gets imported from another country comes to Malaysia is cheap in my opinion. But once in a while, I don't see a harm of trying :) regardless the price.

ladyviral said...

reanaclaire : I should really ask for commission from this shop :P. Now I got more people drinking... haha!

ladyviral said...

Willie : Go get one Calpis Water and try if you are lactose tolerant that is :).

ladyviral said...

Rose : Calpis in US is known as Calpico right? :P

Oh I can't get enough of it too! I don't have the flavored ones in this shop sadly :(. So I can't try...

ladyviral said...

lina : RM3.95?! That is REALLY cheap!

Ah yes you got me to try it hahaha now I can't stop having it :P.

This shop don't have the flavored ones... so can't try :/.

ladyviral said...

Gabriel : Yea you can say it taste ike Yogurt drink. In fact Yogurt is one of the ingredient :P.

levian said...

XD

ladyviral said...

BengBeng : Hahaa! Well, now you know :P. Yea it is kind of pricey. But once in while is ok, better than flying all the way to Japan to get it :P.

Lina mentioned a few other places maybe can see.

ladyviral said...

ladyviral said...

Salitype : Chinese o.O store.. if you can find a Japanese store it might be easy. But I noticed, they are also called Calpico in the states. Where would you be, Eng?

ladyviral said...

lina : Come buy for me too! But free yea? XD I don't mind paying for the storage and handling fee! Unless it is more expensive than the bottle of Calpis hahaha!

ladyviral said...

levian : Yea you should get then! It is yummy! Least to me and lina for now I guess! XD

I used to love them too! But I don't fancy them as much now :P. Triggering tastebuds? XD No Not my fault! Not me! *whistles*

Kelvin said...

I want the collon^^
Its my fav snack last time...used to fight with my sis for it haha:D

ladyviral said...

Kelvin : Hahaha! My sister and I used to do that too! XD

iamthewitch said...

Oh have you tried the ice-blended thingy in front of 100yen shops? Not sure if it's the same everywhere, but they have those shaved ice with mango or with peanuts. Pretty yummy!

Shingo said...

Haha, Collon is like a big piece of my childhood.

As kids, we snack and snack. Now that I'm old, coughing and gotta watch my health liao.

Calypso sounds very familiar.

conan_cat said...

Calpis sounded like something real delicious :D imma go and check out the stores and see if i can find one to try one day! looks YUMMEH!

levian said...

i am no big fan of sour stuff, but you mentioned only slightly sour, so it should feels something like yogurt drinks. n you mentioned milk like, so i am imagining something very smooth now. woot! :p our preference tend to sway away from what we used to like after all these years eh. variety as the main culprit. XD

ladyviral said...

witch : Yes they do have the ice blended thing at the 100¥en store but I have not tried it before though, maybe I should one day ^_^.

ladyviral said...

Shingo : Hahah! I know how that is... when we young, everything is about snacks! Now that we are old, everything is about health :P.

ladyviral said...

conan : There goes another buyer! I want commission! :P

ladyviral said...

levian : It isn't smooth like milk.. it is really like water! Yogurt water... but oh it is delicious... maybe you will explain it better than I did haha! Our likings changes from time to time afterall :P.

sunnymama said...

The cream collom look interesting! I like the packaging. :)

ladyviral said...

sunnymama : Yea so did I! But somehow did not attract me like it did when I was a kid :P.

foongpc said...

lina, jusco is nearer to my place lah. Of course I go Jusco unless the other places are cheaper! And then after I buy, I send the bill over to you yes? Oh, wait! I send half the bill to you and the other half to LV : )

Ayie said...

Oh Lina a big influencer, too abd for me can't get any of those!

levian said...

how true. i used to like milk a lot more than recently. now i switch chocolate milk instead, just to keep myself from feeling hungry half through the morning. wonder when i will go to that area, can't wait to try to drink myself to see how do i find it. i've got a feeling i just might like what you recommended. ;)

Cest La Vie said...

Wow!!! Just so happen recently I just knew about this drink from a friend and apparently it is very popular in Japan. Gonna try one day :)

ladyviral said...

foongpc : lalala~ *whistles and walk away slowly* I didn't hear nor read anything... lalala~

ladyviral said...

Aie : Yes she is! She is making want to try a lot of things haha! Why not? Diet restrictions?

ladyviral said...

levian : I grew up to like milk. I still do! But I stop liking strawberry milk like I used to. I am never a chocolate person, so hahaha out goes chocolate milk for me :P.

ladyviral said...

Cest La Vie : Make sure to tell me what you think about it ^_^.
