Japanese can now buy stress-relief milk — for 43 dollars per bottle
While surfing the news I stumble upon this master piece…. I LOVE JAPAN (Will order a dozen anyway, I badly need it !)
TOKYO (AFP) – A Japanese dairy company on Thursday announced the launch of super-premium milk for stressed-out adults — at the price of 43 dollars for a bottle of 900 millilitres, or one quart.
Tokyo-based Nakazawa Foods will launch the “Adult Milk” line of products in October targetting “adults who live in a stressful society,” the company said in a statement.
The price of 5,000 yen a bottle is nearly 30 times as expensive as ordinary milk even in Tokyo, which is famous for its high prices.
The milk is taken from cows once a week at the break of dawn, as they discharge a lot of a stress-relieving hormone called melatonin during the night, the company said.
The milk is bottled within six hours of milking at a farm north of Tokyo.
It is said to contain three to four times as much melatonin as usual milk.
