Corn! Corn! Corn!

“What can we put on the packaging to make sure that everyone knows it has corn inside?…”

Found in Japanese vending machine from Kirin Beverages. Corn Pottage soup is a popular vending machine drink in Japan in the winter (the cans are heated). It tastes quite good actually – like a corn cream soup.

    I think the Royal Milk Tea is too sweet, don’t you think?

    And I HATED the corn cream soup in Japan! Especially when it sat a little too long and developed a skin over it. GROSS!!!

    Cream corn soup was one of the most DISGUSTING things I had while in Japan. One morning I had no choice since it was the only “drink” served with breakfast at a hotel.

    They seriously need to export these hot drink vending machines to Wisconsin.

    “like corn cream soup”

    What are you? From Japan? Creamed Corn or Corn Chowder. What a dork.
