The other day I bought some yogurt drink in Korean supermarket on Bloor Street. Unlike regular yogurt drink, it is very watery. It tastes sweet and sour and doesn’t have white color. It is so refreshing when just taking out of the fridge. Since I don’t understand any Korean ( all Korean letters printed on the bottle), I don’t know what the name of the yogurt. I am sure they have more than one kind in Korean. I have to go there to find out one day…
My Korean friend Soojin to give me more info: “They claim that they use special lactic bacterium for fermentation. I think that’s why it has different figure and texture.”
I read online somewhere, and it says:” …It’s Japanese actually, developed for ingesting friendly bacteria pleasantly.”
Now I don’t know who is the first one developed it now.
I really love that drink! I remember many years ago, some Korean restaurant used to give the drink at the end of meal as complementary. Somehow, they don’t do that anymore. L
But they are available and cheap to buy in Korean and Chinese supermarket in Toronto. They are also widely distributed all over the world. If I am not mistaken:
10 tiny bottles of yogurt drink are wrapped in plastic and sold as $2. The only thing is that they are only sold in tiny plastic bottles. I feel guilty of wasting plastics bottles, because I can drink all of them at once!
