Another Ugly Can of Pokka Milk Coffee

Now you’re wondering why I got another, smaller (thinner!) can of Pokka Milk Coffee when I so disparaged it the last time. Well, it was the cheapest coffee fix I could find at HK Super, save for the gross-looking mini-cup shot of coffee outside by the entrance.

Cans of Pokka Milk Coffee - Real Brewed
The only thing different on the label on the smaller can is this paragraph: “Rich in taste and strong in aroma. The original Milk Coffee, brewed from fresh coffee beans.”

Original? Mmm… so UCC started the trend in canned coffee and Pokka the one for milk coffee?

CAFE AU LAIT. Ingredients: Water, freshly brewed coffee, milk, sugar, stabilizer (E473, E491), natural flavoring.

STABILIZER: Sorbitan Monostearate E491. Sugar Esters E473.

The appearance of milk particles in this product is natural, and does not affect the quality.

Contains permitted Food Additives of Non-Animal Origin.

Product of Singapore. Under the license and the strictest quality control of Pokka Corp., Japan. Manufactured and distributed by Pokka Corporation (S) Ltd, 39 Quality Road, Singapore 618810. Distributed by a company based in Brunei Darassalam. UPC Bar Code Number 8 888196 110428.

Ugly Can of Pokka Milk Coffee

Isn’t that the ugliest thing? The artist’s rendition of a man’s face on a can of Pokka Milk Coffee. I wouldn’t be caught dead holding this can in public. Bought it only because I felt compelled to try all of Pokka’s products.

Can of Pokka Milk Coffee - Real Brewed
Again, like most of Pokka’s drinks, the taste was unremarkable. I’ll stick to Monster Java and Starbucks Doubleshot canned coffee.

CAFE AU LAIT. Ingredients: Water, freshly brewed coffee, milk, sugar, stabilizer, natural flavoring.

STABILIZER: Sorbitan Monostearate E491. Sugar Esters E473.

The appearance of milk particles in this product is natural, and does not affect the quality.

Contains permitted Food Additives of Non-Animal Origin.

Product of Singapore. Under the license and the strictest quality control of Pokka Corp., Japan. Manufactured and distributed by Pokka Corporation (S) Ltd, 39 Quality Road, Singapore 618810. Distributed by a company of Brunei. UPC Bar Code Number 8 888196 121028.

Can’t remember what it tasted like… so it is neither remarkably good nor remarkably bad.
