Pokka Melon Milk

Pokka Melon Milk

Here's one that I'll bet you don't see every day: Melon Milk, from the Japanese beverage company Pokka. What's Melon Milk? Well, the ingredient listing on the can says that it's made from melon juice and milk. OK, that plus water, sugar, and some very long chemical names. But yeah, it's basically Japanese melon-flavored milk.

It may sound a bit wierd, but if you like Japanese melon as much I do (or for that matter, Japanese melon soda), then this one will glide right down your throat too. Anyway, here's another one to file away under Japanese drinks.

Daiso has a range of the Jap drinks. Yes, they long chemical names, but they taste unique and great. LOL

I love Pokka Melon Milk, and I thought I was the only stranger person who does! I can only get it from the vending machine at my apartment. :)

It was also from a vending machine...a Pokka vending machine on Anson Road, to be specific. Judging by the comment above, it sounds like there are at least few machines around, even if they are pretty rare in Singapore.

The vending machine with the Pokka Melon Milk, is the one opposite the M Hotel, near the bus-stop. But the menu of drinks sometimes changes.

You can find another vending machine serving this drink on the 2nd floor of the Lippo Building, just slightly furhter down the road from the M Hotel.

hmmmm.... stumbled upon the drink once again earlier! in two 7-11 stores. not only do they carry the melon milk drink, they also have strawberry and mango milk drinks...

there're two 7-11 stores at raffles place mrt station, but only the one located at B1-53 carries the drink. the other is at citilink (beside starbucks)

it appears the drink is more common now eh?!
