What are PopaBall’s Bursting Bubbles?
A 125g pot full of bursting juicy bubbles in a selection of different fruity flavours!

Where do they come from?
More than likely you’ve heard of “Bubble Tea”. The concept of putting bubbles into beverages came about in the early 1980s at a small tea stand in Taiwan, a craze that spread quickly through neighbouring Asian countries and then around the globe, reaching the UK in around 2010. Classically, “Bubble Tea” began as a sweetened tea that was shaken to form a layer of foam bubbles at the top of the drink.

It wasn’t until a few short years later when Tapioca pearls were introduced to those drinks; chewy balls made from arrowroot starch that would sit at the bottom of the beverage – they added an extra dimension to beverages by turning them into a snack and a drink.

Over the years variations of “Bubble Tea” have changed, but the delicious concept of adding juicy popping balls to drinks has remained; whether they go into tea or not!

What do I do with them?
Drain the liquid in the pot and add about a third of the pot of bubbles to your drink, suck them up through the specially designed chunky straw, bite and feel them burst with juice. They retain their shape and flavour until they are burst!

What are they made from?
The shell is made from seaweed extract and they have a super juicy liquid middle!

What do they go well in?
They are most commonly used in bubble tea but also go just as well in most cold drinks! Try them in a glass of water, cordials, cocktails, smoothies and even fizzy drinks where they will eventually float!

These bubbles make a fantastic addition to any party (for adults or children alike!) as they can not only go in water, soft drinks, mocktails and alcoholic drinks, they also make a great topping for desserts such as ice cream, jelly, yoghurt and mousse!
