By now, everyone has probably grown up with or at least heard of Yakult, but there’s another celebrated Asian drink from Jaan called Skal, the first carbonated milk soda in Japan since its creation in 1972.
This yogurty drink claims it has not changed its taste since its inception and is one of many underrated Japanese vending machine drinks. The name itself means squall or storm.
Various flavors of this fruity, creamy beverage include citrus, melon and apple.

the saddest thing about finally getting to try skal when I was in japan is that I’ll never get more once I was back home

people who’ve been to japan often talk about their awesome softdrinks,. but am I the only one who thought #Skál was brilliant?
