Call it a blessing from the Yakult gods, if you will.

Who doesn't love Yakult? The Japanese probiotic drink is a favorite among many not only for its gut-regulating benefits, but also for its signature tangy, sweet flavor. The only problem is, at 80 ml a regular bottle here in the Philippines, it's just too darn small! But we've got good news: we recently spotted a 500-ml Yakult bottle and you can order it online!
This 500-ml Yakult Drink-Yakuruto no chichisei inryou miruuju (Yakult milk drink mirouge) in Japanese-is a "lactic drink" similar to the O.G. Yakult, with galacto-oligosaccharides (which is linked to various health benefits). According to Singaporean website Mothership, it's a tad different from the smaller versions in that it tastes slightly watered down and less sweet, but we say that's not necessarily a bad thing. If anything, that makes it easier to drink and finish the 500-ml bottle! You can order it from online store Tokyo Market PH and get it delivered.
Update as of 17 February: Tokyo Market has posted on their Instagram that the 500-ml Yakult is currently sold out. For those who want to order and are willing to wait, you can message their Instagram with the following details: complete name, contact number, order, and order quantity.
You can pay for your order using DragonPay and bank transfer (BDO, BPI, Chinabank, and GCash). Once the order is ready, you can have it delivered (they can deliver nationwide) or you can have it picked up.
For more information, you can visit Tokyo Market's website or send them a message via Viber using the number (0966)-328-2783.
