word to the wise  
when buying yogurt in Japan be very careful to not only look at the picture on the yogurt container, but also be on the lookout for the tiny label that says アロイ (aloe) because it is not a pleasant experience when expecting only blueberries to be eating yogurt with blueberry and small chunks of aloe.  My tongue feels funny now.

Hee! Perhaps it's good if you've just had a hot coffee, and wish to soothe your tongue?

possibly? however, then the blueberries might be distracting! ;)

I had aloe juice once. My mom brought it back from an Asian market.

It was interesting.

there are tons of things with aloe in them here. but usually i try to avoid them. and interesting, i think, is definitely the right word.

...that would definitely be an interesting surprise. Gack.

exactly! i will endeavor not to do that again, you can rest assured!

Well I couldn't have read アロイ anyway.
Unpleasant surprise indeed :(
Yuck.

definitely NOT what i was expecting, for sure!

They mix aloe with blueberries? I didn't even know people ate aloe. I thought it was for sunburns and stuff. Ick...

they mix aloe with a lot of things - it's kind of like tapioca that way, except it's considered healthier. And it can be used for sunburns and stuff, but people used to (and still do) eat it. Still, ick is so the word.

hahah i totally loved that kind, don't be a hater ;p have you tried the drink with the aloe chunks?

DUDE WHY AREN'T YOU IN JAPAN WITH ME???

Not that I'd drink the drink with aloe chunks - I'd leave them all for you. I was in Asakasa today and *seriously* contemplated having Italian but then decided that would be way too early to already start eating the american food.
