Move over Calpis, Coke releases 'Moo Moo White'

50 Comments

Popular model Jun Komori, 24, was on hand Monday to play "Gyaru Store Manager for the day" at the Shibuya Center-gai Burger King as a promotion for Coca Cola's new "Fanta Moo Moo White" carbonated dairy-based drink. To lend support, former yokozuna Akebono, 40, tried out a "part time job," greeting customers.

Komori, who was wearing a cow-patterned uniform, sampled the drink in front of customers, exclaiming, "This is so good!! Not only for 'gyaru,' but I bet kids would like it too!"

From Wednesday, Akebono will be appearing in a commercial as the drummer in five-member rock band "Fanta," and while the other members have yet to be announced, big names have been promised.

This sounds abolulely disgusting. Moo Moo White? Zero points for originality, too. Who dreams up these crass names,and do they actually get paid for it?

Maybe they should market this exactly at the product name market... like Wisconsin.

Burger King is giveing them away for free, and they're crap. The whole time I was wishing I was drinking Calpis instead.

I would prefer Calpis or SKAL.

Anyone tried it yet? Even though I'm lactose intolerant, I am curious to know what it taste like (as I can't imagine it tasting all that great).

I was inspired to pick up bottle on my way home today... I am drinking it now. I'd say it kind of tastes like cream soda, but with an unplesant under-taste. Think I'll pass next time.

PS. I quite like calpis, it's an excellent mixer.

Coca Cola’s new “Fanta Moo Moo White”

Coca Cola shows a continued lack of understanding their Japanese customers' taste as they bring a new taste on the market every month.

i'm sure there's 0% natural about it, other than the barely potable water they use as a base.

Milk doesn't naturally last that long, so i wonder what the expiration date is on these drinks? Anyone tried it yet? Even though I'm lactose intolerant, I am curious to know what it taste like (as I can't imagine it tasting all that great).

I wonder if the carbon dioxide is adversely reacting with the milk proteins? Six months from now we'll find out the resulting chemical mix results in increased flatulence. :-)

“This is so good!! Not only for ‘gyaru,’ but I bet kids would like it too!”

Dumbest quote the staff could have written to give to that thing.

Fadamor - Something like that. Try it, ya might like it!

So it tastes like cream soda?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

It contains 60 mg of calcium per 100 ml, or 300 mg per 500ml bottle. Yer welcome!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

does it contain calcium?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I tried it. Kinda tastes like vanilla.

I would like some Momo, and not talking real peaches. With shouchu of course. Crush up some ice, fill the glass, and put some shouchu in it. Then get some of this MoMo, and lots of nice momo out there, fill up and sip slowly while waiting for good entertainment. I am definitely going to try this stuff as mixer, but I hope it does not give me a head ache.

I drank Moo Moo on the choo choo, but I couldn't find anywhere to wee wee...

Will Coke come out with a Chocolate version of this called "Doo Doo Brown"?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

ahh hell no....

I like the sound of "Mu Mu Waito" better than "Karupisu"

How it tastes is another matter...

I shun these unhealthy carbonated drinks for healthier options like beer or vodka.

Thank goodness that we have talento to advise us on the difficult choice of carbonated beverages. It's so confusing !

I love how everyone is dissing this drink before they even taste it. Typical. I will try it.

I see Makebono is wearing a sash that says "ichinichi arubaito". Looks like this new job is going to last longer than his K-1 career!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I bet the label says something like "contains less than 1% milk product" in fine print.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Its a reference to the sound of the name, Calpis. It must be an inside joke. Coke has made mistakes before, New Coke, being a fine example.

The Calpis Premium Strawberry is the best new drink I've had in the last 12 months.

What does Calpis taste like? hopefully not cow piss.

Met Akebono back in the day when he was on the way up. He acted a bit like a jerk making puns on the word "kaku" to my wife. If he wouldn't have squashed my head I would have told him to kaku himself.

What a pathetic name.... I wonder how many proposals and meetings they went through to come up with that Jinglish name...

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Add it to the list of artificially sweetened, chemical laden, processed crap that continues its steady stream into the market. Just drink non-fat milk, ignore this product and if nobody buys it it will eventually go away...

its fitting that an over-weight sumo wrestler is the face of this sugar water variation.

carbonated dairy-based drink...an idea whose time will never come

Moderator: Please learn the difference between loser and looser.

Oh my god, that's classic! Thank you mod, after feeling so nauseated at the thought of the dreaded moo moos you've cheered me up and made me feel 100% better! I reckon most of the people on the internet genuinely don't know the difference or how to pronounce the two words. Unbelievable really, but so's the name moo moo.

Never mind the drink though, I'll definitely be giving it a miss.

Moo moo white? That sounds like an international hit.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Calpis and Calpis Soda are two very different drinks. I like the soda on emixed with Shouchu on Ice. I will try thins new drink, called moomoo. I hope it is better than that Azuki Pepsi, That was a looser.

Model Jun Komori, center, with Akebono

So who's the lady on the left?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

From Yokozuna to an almost fighter in K-1, to a part time greeter, to a drummer. Geeezzz! What's next?

moo moo white? Hard to imagine a group of intelligent folks sitting around the meeting room throwing ideas back and forth and getting excited over moo moo white!!!! Wow the other ideas must have been really crap......or perhaps the brainiacs only had like a 10 second deadline!!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Oh wow does Akebono's sash read 'Part-Timer for the Day'? For crying out loud, at least let him be the manager for the day!

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I always trust Akebono and Komori for all my drink selections.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Lame.

These new drinks are rarely anything new. Just variations of previous formulas in a fancy new container with a catchy name and slogan. Here today/gone tomorrow.

Ewww... I saw that at the grocery store just last night and I thought to pick one up some other time, but if it's just like Calpis, no thanks.

saw Akebono here at the Yokota swimming pool....nice guy but he was moving sooooooo slow.

More Junk...

’ but I bet kids would like it too!”

That's not healthy at all....No more SUGAR, FAT, and SALT..It's becoming epidemic = obesity and child diabetes. Stop pushing this junk on us.

The demand for carbonated beverages continues to decline, as there are fewer kids to drink them, and adults prefer tea and coffee beverages. The biggest growth product seems to be thermos bottles, into which people wishing to economise may pour tap water from their home spigot.

"Komori, who was wearing a cow-patterned uniform"

She should be pitching Cow Piss.
