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.
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?
