Last week, I went to Yakult plant in Calamba. I really wasn't expecting much. I thought Sophie just invited us for a plant tour in Yakult. I said "yes" because I love Yakult until now!
Warning: this post of photo heavy.
Welcome to Yakult Plant!

Now, click read more to find out why we were invited to Yakult!
We only stayed for an hour at the Yakult Plant then headed back to Manila for lunch. We had lunch at Tanabe Japanese Restaurant in Malate, Manila. And this was where we all got surprised and excited at the same time!

We were given this kind of Yakult! Don't you like the new look?!
We finally have Yakult Light in the Philippines!
Yakult Philippines has finally decided to bring in Yakult Light here in Manila. An 80ml bottles only has 45kcal and has 0% fat!
There was a study that most of the people that drink Yakult are kids. When they become teens, they drink other beverages and eventually forget about Yakult. I guess this is one of the reasons why Yakult decided to bring Yakult Light in Manila - so that teens and adults can rekindle their childhood with Yakult but at the same time stay in great shape (assuming they are calorie conscious)!
Comparison of the regular Yakult and Yakult Light
With regards to taste, they almost taste the same. If you don't drink Yakult frequently, I doubt you'd be able to tell the difference. Yakult Light is slightly less sour than the normal Yakult. I'm glad that there wasn't much difference on the taste because I like the original Yakult just fine.
Yakult Light will be available in Manila next week and hopefully all throughout the Philippines by 2015. It retails for PhP10 per bottle. Not bad for a healthy drink. Personally, I drink a bottle of Yakult everyday. There are even times when I drink a whole pack of Yakult in one seating. That's how much I love Yakult!
We were given and everyone was going giddy when it was showed to us! There's a legit Yakult coin bank, a 4gb Yakult shaped USB drive, and Yakult cellphone trinkets. We were also given 10 packs of Yakult and Yakult Light drinks! Talk about Yakult overload!
Follow me! Yes? No? Yey!
