If you are reading this, you’ve probably heard all the hype around the popular brown sugar boba ice cream bar! If you haven’t grown up with boba your whole life, boba is a beloved Asian drink that contains sweet, chewy tapioca pearls with a milk-based tea. Boba has become a true Asian American icon. One of the most popular flavors is brown sugar milk tea. Boba lovers around the world are going crazy over these new ice cream bars when they learned their favorite drink could be turned into another form of dessert. As someone who loves both boba and ice cream, I had to give this an honest review.
So, let’s start, is it worth the hype?
The Aesthetic: 10/10
Without a doubt, after opening it from it’s package, my anticipation was satisfied after it’s creamy brown sugar swirl and boba bits were revealed to me. The visuals of the brown sugar boba ice cream truly do not fail to make your mouth water. It’s also exactly what you expect of a boba ice cream bar.
The Taste: 7/10
To be honest, I couldn’t really tell if the flavor was similar to brown sugar milk tea, or if it was just sweet. The brown sugar flavor was there, but rather subtle. It tasted more like creamy vanilla with an after taste of brown sugar. There was some caramel flavor as well. The texture was creamy and a bit chewy, but that might’ve just been the boba bits. I would’ve wanted the brown sugar flavor to come out more. Overall, the taste was satisfying and sweet.
The Boba: 8/10
The boba bits were my favorite, a bit frozen, but the familiar chewiness and delectableness was still there. The boba was definitely satisfying and solidified that this ice cream bar was a boba ice cream bar. The only reason I rated the boba an 8 instead of a 10 was that I wished they were less frozen and a little more chewy. The closest thing I can compare it to is a few days old mochi.. However, it went well in the ice cream bar and satisfied my boba cravings. I’d still say it was a job well done.
My average rating for the brown sugar milk tea boba ice cream bar? ~8.5/10
Would I buy this again? Yes.
But nothing beats the original milk tea. However, if you are both a boba and ice cream stan, then it wouldn’t hurt to try this collab at least once in your life. You can learn more about the origins of boba here.
