In Japan, you will find it common to drink your yogurt… nomu yooguruto 飲むヨーグルト is “drink yogurt.” Yogurt here tends to be thinner than the US, so I guess it makes sense that there are so many yogurt drinks rather than regular yogurt. The Japanese have done a lot of research with lactid acid bacteria and using it in diets. These products are really popular, and supposedly help with gut health. The only downside is that sometimes these drinks contain a decent amount of sugar, but they are okay once in awhile in moderation I think. Occasionally I will pick one up from the conbini; you can usually find flavors such as plain, blueberry, strawberry, grape, banana, citrus, and aloe.
