Yeo’s Soy Bean Drink: Authentic Asian Drink

I want to avoid calling “thuppo wum” “soymilk” because if my memory serves me correctly, Ming Tsai explained the difference between soymilk and soyjuice distinctly. I can’t quote him on it, but soymilk is when the soy bean is grinded back in with the boiled juice. On the other hand, soy juice is the byproduct of boiling the soy beans in water, then discarding the beans. And having tasted Yeo’s versus the craptastic “healthy” soymilk, I would think that Yeo’s doesn’t serve me any benefit besides satisfying my sweet tooth and that is the one I prefer.
I don’t want to call Yeo’s Soy Bean Drink soymilk because, for the obvious reason, Yeo’s doesn’t call it soymilk. It might technically be processed as soymilk, but that stuff goes down smooth so I don’t think there is a high ratio of beans in there if any. Unlike that nasty Silk, which looks like baby formula and tastes like a mouthful of glue, Yeo’s is sweet and light.
And to make a reference to another Asian drink I enjoy, there’s Vitasoy’s Coconut Soya Drink, which is a blend of cocunut and soy. It’s a creamy, sweet and even blend and for the American taste buds, it’s a refreshing tropical flavor that isn’t too alienating. Is it better than PiƱa colada? Sometimes. I’m a sucker for either one, as long as you’re paying.
