From someone who suffers with IBS, a good deal.

Why don't they sell it singularly as they do in Japan, lots of girls outside metro stations & city centres selling 1 or 2 at a time to lots of sensible Japanese who understand how good this is for them.

In Hong Kong, these are HK$15 (£1.25) for two packs of 5 or HK$9.9 for a pack of 5.

Why is it so expensive in the UK?


There is also a Low sugar version sold in HK. Do they sell them in th UK?

Yeah, they do the light version here too. It's packaged in light blue.
Have you noticed the difference in size too... the asian version is almost twice as big for a pack of 5 (100ml), these are a pack of 7 though (65ml I think)

Someones asked the same question on the HK expat website. Not sure what the answer is but since it's a Japanese product, do the Japanese store it in the fridge??

I've seen them sold in Mannings and Watsons etc and they're definitely not refridgerated. I normally get mine from the fridge at Park n Shop/Welcome/Jusco supermarkets.

Yeah, but with the air con on max it's pretty cold anyway
Having said that, the small corner stalls don't store them in the fridges either

so are you a fellow HK'er (香港人)or a frequent flyer?

Edited by: "toughCookie" 25th Jan 2012

Frequent flyer but I am also HK permanent resident so I am looking forward to my HK$6200 from the HK government

I visit HK approximately once every two years and normally stay for 6/7 months but can't do that now because my kids have started school here in the UK.

This the best price it has ever been. Never seen this product reduced in price before.

And you too. Kung Hei Fat Choi, 身體健康

I bought some Yakult @ Tesco this evening and noticed that the HK version is a lot sweeter than the UK version. Maybe the high sugar content in the HK version helps preserve it so it does not need to be refrigerated.
