One of the things I scout for when traveling are retro milk bottles.
You know, I don't even eat much dairy anymore but I'm a sucker for the packaging designs. Here are some things I particularly love to look for in Japan.
明治 Meiji Dairy Co. has been around since 1917.
Chichiyasu チチヤス is a dairy company that specializes in all things lactic.
Here are some or their beautiful packaging designs.
森永 Morinaga Co. has a sour yogurt drink called "Mami" that I accidentally put in my cereal once thinking it was milk...
Morinaga's mascot for a time was Homo-chan ホモちゃん
Homo meaning "homogenized"
I'm excited to see what the antique fairs turn up!
Until next time ...
