Why I am happy to live in Japan – Part 3: Dairy Products
I started this series with some serious topics, but today I would like to write about something smaller: dairy products. I grew up drinking a lot of milk with my family – by the time I was in high school, the four of us drank about 24 liters of milk per week!
We ate a lot of cheese and ice cream, too, so my life was filled with dairy products, and I enjoyed them very much.
When first I came to Hokkaido, I was surprised by how delicious the milk is here. I enjoyed drinking it with coffee or poured over cereal. I was also surprised because there is milk flavored ice cream here. In America, soft-serve ice cream is usually vanilla or chocolate flavor, and I had never heard of milk flavored ice cream, but it’s so delicious! I now usually get milk flavor if I have soft-serve ice cream. Hokkaido cheese is also really good – I am happy to be able to get high quality, fresh cheese in any supermarket.
I hope Hokkaido’s dairy farmers keep working to give us lots of healthy and delicious milk, cream, butter, cheese, and yogurt.
