TOPVALU is the private brand of AEON, a chain of supermarkets. There are over 1700 products under the TOPVALU label, and many of them are surprisingly good… including their reduced calorie chuuhai and are only half the price of many chuuhai you can find at other stores.
This 75 calorie lemon-flavored chuuhai uses 3.6% real lemon juice and is tart. With only 2.1 grams of sugar, it is not sweet at all, but I suspect because it has a relatively low amount of alcohol, it’s not bitter. I prefer my chuuhai a bit sweeter, but this is a nice, balanced, tart drink.
