What is popping boba?

Have you heard?  Popping boba is the latest craze.  So what is it?

Buy it here!

It’s boba (also commonly referred to as “bubbles” or “tapioca pearls” ) with juice that ‘pops’ inside your mouth.  It’s an invigorating and fun experience.

Some have considered this to be revolutionary boba technology.  In a recent survey, this new boba invention is something that the vast majority of people have never seen, nor tasted before.   However, the innovative product is making its way across frozen yogurt shops, bubble tea shops, and cafes nationwide.  Large chains such as Red Mango, Yogurtland, Pinkberry, etc. are starting to test the products out.  Mike Shieh, a sales representative for Boba Tea Direct (a distributor of the product), said in an interview, “We’ve had numerous inquiries for this on a daily basis, and it has been our hottest product.”

Not only are stores buying it to serve to their clients in a variety of drinks, frozen yogurt, and desserts, people are buying it for home use or office use.  In the home, some have used it to give their drinks or desserts a fresh look.  Popping bobas go well with cold drinks, ice cream, frozen yogurt or shaved ice.  You can even use these popping bobas in your pudding, jelly, or cake for a brand new type of “Top Chef” style of presentation.

The current flavors that are available are:

  • Strawberry Popping Boba
  • Yogurt Popping Boba
  • Mango Popping Boba
  • Passion Fruit Popping Boba
  • Lychee (ie. Litchi) Popping Boba
  • Orange Popping Boba

A funny side note:  Please make sure you spell “popping boba” correctly.  Many have typed in “pooping boba” instead of “popping boba”.  One letter sure can make a big difference. :-)

    Thanks for the introduction. I’ve ordered a case of each flavor to try out in our 7 shops in Texas.

  2. Matt says:

    Why do you only sell the Yogurt, Mango, Passion Fruit, and Orange? When will all of the flavors be available for purchase?

    • admin says:

      We’ve been getting a tremendous demand and shops nationwide ordering by the pallets. Therefore, we’re currently out of stock on some flavors for about a week. We’ll be getting the rest in shortly again. Sorry for the slight inconvenience. If you would like to be put on the backorder list, please let us know. Currently, we have every flavor except Lychee Popping Boba and Strawberry Popping Boba (running very low on Mango Popping Boba as well). As mentioned, we’ll be getting more in stock soon.

  12. Armath says:

    Hello, is there available a sampler/trial amount for purchase? We’d love to have some for our home, and would be willing to invest in a tub, but it’s a very large amount to order for being uncertain of the flavors. This would also be good for businesses wanting to sample your products! :)

    Are popping boba vegan? Is the calcium lactate in the ingredient list animal or plant sourced? The other ingredients look okay. Thank you.

  21. Tiffany says:

    Oh man I tried these for the first time today and let me tell you the passionfruit boba is to die for….. I mean omg!

  22. Jocasta says:

    Funny that you caution people about spelling when you don’t know the difference between “it’s” and “its”.

    • admin says:

      LOL. :-) Actually, to clarify … it’s = it is. So when we write the following:

      It’s boba (also commonly referred to as “bubbles” or “tapioca pearls” ) with juice that ‘pops’ inside your mouth. It’s an invigorating and fun experience.

      It can be written also as:

      It is boba with juice that ‘pops’ inside your mouth. It is an invigorating and fun experience.

    This stuff is amazing! We first found it at our local frozen yogurt shop and now we go there just to get the bobas! I’ve heard of people freezing them then putting them in their tea, topping on cakes/cupcakes, making bubble tea, etc. The possibilities are endless and everyone is hooked on them!
