Japan’s New Tomato Latte: How Does It Taste?

Tomato? Latte? Do they even taste good together? That’s what SoraNews24 tried to find out.

Convenience store chain Lawson unveiled the Tomato Latte on June 4. The said beverage is Lawson’s new addition to their Machi Cafe drink series and costs ¥210 (US $1.95).

It’s a collaboration between Lawson and Japanese vegetable juice producer Kagome, and Lawson boasts that it’s made with “high-lycopene tomatoes.”
Trust us when we say the sound of it wasn’t all that appealing to us, but we were too curious to not try it. A closer look at the latte’s description made us relax a bit: it’s a blend of tomatoes and milk, and there are some carrots thrown in to sweeten it up and make it easier to drink.
We watched the cashier mix the tomato juice and milk, our eyes full of trepidation. But when we tried it…
…it was delicious!

Sounds like you could add milk to a V8 and get the same effect. Or maybe just some creamy tomato soup. Sure let's call soup a Latte now. I'm having a Minestrone latte tomorrow.
