After 35 years, finally Yakult launches a new variant- Yakult Light, a dream come true for the health conscious! 😀 I’m sure I’m not the only who feels Yakult’s bottle is just too small. One is never enough! I remember when I was in elementary I used to have a classmate who brings a jug of Yakult almost every day! I, myself, have Yakult addiction. In fact, I still drink it every single night before sleeping. More than the taste, I believe on its health benefits. But now with Yakult Light, I can drink more than one bottle everyday without worrying about calories! Yay! 😀
