I Think I'm Turning Japanese

I'm super into this beverage Calpico, and it's not just because the labeling features Hello Kitty.  It's name is really Calpis, but since it sounds like "Cow Piss" the name has been altered for us lazy, ignorant Americans.  It's very light & milky, with some slight acidic flavoring, probably due to the nonfat dry milk that has, in fact, been treated with lactic acid.  It's been around for 89 years, and is awesome.  The taste is hard to describe, but I'll attempt to say it is light & tangy.  Kind-of reminds me of aloe-vera water.  Did I also mention that you are supposed to add water to it? I didn't the first time, and thought it tasted fine.  

Water, high fructose corn syrup, sugar, nonfat dry milk (treated with a lactic acid, natural and artificial flavors, citric acid, soy fiber, sodium citrate
