YoguritoJapan

7 of 11

Description: This tangy, yogurt-based liqueur may be made in Holland and bottled in France, but its target market is strictly Japan. Drunk straight or mixed with orange or pineapple juice, the creamy, fruity-sweet combo is especially popular among the health-conscious. But when asked about the calcium content of Yogurito, a Suntory representative remarked, “Yogurito is made from yogurt and tastes like yogurt, but is not yogurt. We cannot say that it’s healthy.”

Where to Find It: In bars, restaurants, and chain supermarkets across Japan.
