Fire milk taste limited in Hokkaido by Kirin Company
When I went to Asahikawa, found a Hokkaido limited edition of popular brand canned coffee in the vending machine at Sapporo station. Fire milk taste limited in Hokkaido looked as usual types of canned coffee sold everywhere, but it was actually described as Hokkaido limited on the can. Sugar and milk added into the coffee are made-in-Hokkaido and the canned coffee is sold only in Hokkaido. Milk produced in Hokkaido is used in various tasty products and even seen them in other countries, meanwhile, sugar produced in Hokkaido is not as popular as milk. In addition to rich taste of Hokkaido milk and fresh cream, the mildly sweet sugar are making the nice taste.
