Calpico is a very unique non-carbonated soft drink made with a milk base. It’s very popular in Japan, and the drink typically contains lactobacillus which is very helpful in digestion. This one is flavored with strawberry, giving it a sweeter, fruity taste to it.

I tried this because a lot of my friends have been ranting and raving about how good it is. Either they were embellishing the details or I got a bad bottle, because I took one sip and was immediately put off.
The drink had a texture like powdered milk, which isn't something desirable to me, and it had a very sour flavor that tasted almost nothing like strawberries or strawberry flavoring. I'm hesitant to try this again, but part of me thinks that because it spent so much time in transit the milk may have gone bad.

I wasn't really a fan of this drink. The after-taste isn't for my liking.

Lightly sweet, and tastes similar to strawberry flavored milk. I really recommend to drink this chilled, much better!
