Giant Tapioca Balls, Yes Please!

Yep. That’s right. I’m talking boba here.

For those of you who don’t know, boba is a form of tapioca used in Asian delicacies like smoothies or bubble tea. Yes, it sounds weird and it doesn’t look quite appetizing, but it’s delicious! Boba don’t have much flavor besides being sort of sweet. They are chewy, however, which is probably where the appeal comes from.

My good friend who is Asian was the first person to introduce me to this strange delicacy. Now my favorite drink to get is a mango or peach snow with boba of course. Most of the time places selling boba are hard to come by, but I’m lucky enough to live 20 minutes from the “China town” of Denver. Just writing about it now is making me crave some boba. So anyone who hasn’t tried boba should. You won’t be disappointed.
