Boba goes mainstream in the U.S. as fast-food chains like Dunkin’ Donuts and Del Taco begin serving bubble tea & popping boba pearls.
On today’s episode of The Foodbeast Katchup podcast, we discuss the Boba wave going on in America. Del Taco’s new poppin’ boba in the form of “Sprite Poppers,” allows customers to put cherry or mango boba pearls on top of their Sprite. Meanwhile, Dunkin’ is testing Bubble Iced Tea and Bubble Iced Coffee through mid-August at a few locations in Upstate New York and Massachusetts. We sat down with our dear friend Tai Tran of @AsiansNeverDie, who’s built a community of millions on Facebook and Instagram around comedic moments and culture in the Asian-American community, to discuss the current boba wave hitting U.S. fast food chains.
