I enjoy soy milk and when shopping I usually choose an organic unsweetened variety. How about you? If you don’t like the characteristic taste of plain soy milk and prefer the sweeter flavored ones, I have great info to share with you! One of the best known Japanese soy food product makers, Kikkoman, has a wide variety of flavored soy milk.

Actually, one of my friends is working on a project to gradually sample and critique all flavors! Here are his personal impressions for some of the Kikkoman offerings .

Sweet read bean soup: No way!
Cocoa: “No”. It doesn’t have any cocoa flavor!
Yuzu citrus: Unexpectedly, “yes”! Refreshing.
Chestnut: No way! No way! Too sweet!
Baked sweet potato: “No”! This is also too sweet.
Malt coffee: Absolutely “YES”!!
Orangette: Difficult to say “yes” or “no”… but “no” after all 🙁
Healthy cola: It’s like cola without soda. Surprisingly “yes”.

His conclusion –> Plain one is the best! (lol)

Which flavor are you interested in? The flavor I am curious about the most is “healthy cola”. I don’t totally understand why Kikkoman decided to add this flavor to their line-up. This friend says that it’s good, and other friend says “absolutely NO!” to this flavor. So, when I visit Japan next time, I would like to try “healthy cola” soy milk and judge for myself. I sure Hope this flavor will survive until then…
