The Japanese drink Calpis is pronounced like cow piss so it was renamed Calpico when sold in the United States. The beverage tastes somewhat like plain or vanilla-flavored yogurt. Its ingredients include water, nonfat dry milk and lactic acid. I don't like it's taste (it is available at local Chinese grocers).
A similar product that was released in Japan on October 21, 2008 is pepsi white a cola yogurt drink. The Japanese release a lot of limited release flavors of Pepsi that are not released anywhere else like Pepsi Cucumber Ice (Cucumber flavor) and Pepsi Blue Hawaii (pineapple lemon mix). Cucumber Ice sounds terrible since I don't like Cucumbers but Blue Hawaii, judging by the flavor, seems like it would taste good.
