Confessions: I LOVE BOBA
I do not know the reason, but I love boba drinks. I actually crave them... I am craving it right now! I recently had a friend say that boba is only for those 16 and under. I TOTALLY disagree. I will go out of my way to hit up the Lollicup in Irvine.
There is something about eating your drink that just seems so right. For those who are unclutured here is what a boba is:
It is placed in the bottom of a drink. You drink with a large straw that sucks up the boba as well as the drink. My favorite is the pina colada slush with boba (of course). You have to be careful (especially your first time) not to choke on the boba. I guess I like how filling they are, more than just a drink, and the mix of textures does not bother me. I admit, my first boba was difficult. It seemed so weird to not get a full gulp of drink, but this totally grew on me. If you want more drink, pull the straw up. If you want more boba, move it all the way down.
To top it off, Lollicup even seals the cup with their own sealing device. That just adds to the coolness. I know I am late getting into the boba game, but I have made up for it. It is my favorite post-Disney treat.
