While sucking away on your favorite Fruitealicious drink and chomping till your jaw gets tired, you may have wondered what are these little suckers I’m chewing on?  Well we’re here to give you a quick run down on all the Add-ons we have available for you.

Tapioca Balls

Always fresh tapioca balls at Fruitealicious

This is where bubble tea all started.  These black chewy balls of goodness are made of Tapioca, which is from the Cassava root.  A perfect tapioca ball is chewy all the way through with a slight firm and bouncy feel to them when first biting into each one.  We also soak them in honey and brown sugar to give them a slightly sweet tasting undertone.

Quick Tip: Tapioca goes well with almost any drink but try them with either a milk tea or an iced coffee to compliment the inherent caramel taste within them.

Jellies

Rainbow Jellies

Contrary to popular belief these are not made out of gelatin.  They are actually made out of coconut water.  Also known as Nada de Coco, they have been around for a long time within many Asian desserts and snacks.  Recently they have been used as an alternative to tapioca for bubble tea.  We carry about 8 different jellies at Fruitealicious in various flavors.  Most are similar in consistency except for Rainbow Jellies (which are softer and more neutral in taste) and Aloe Vera (which are diced up aloe that has a succulent crunchy texture).

Quick Tip: Jellies are a great way to change the flavor of your favorite drink and create a different element.   Try putting 2 flavors that don’t seem to match such as Watermelon Fruit Chiller with Green Apple jellies and you’ll be surprised how fun your drink becomes.

Fruit Bits

We finely dice our fruit into tiny little pieces each day for your drink satisfaction.  We purchase, ripen, and cut fruit using a system that always allows us to get each and every mango, kiwi, strawberry, etc to taste the very best it can before we chop up those suckers with our samurai cutting knife!  We currently carry strawberry, watermelon, mango, pineapple, kiwi, raspberry, and peach bits.

Quick Tip: Add a different fruit to your favorite Fruit Chiller.  Try adding fresh mango bits to your next Pina Colada or fresh strawberry bits to your Pineapple Fruit Chiller.  Another popular one is adding fresh mango bits to your iced tea.  Lastly, ask the staff for the “Tootie Fruitea” add on and they will put all our fruits in your iced tea.

Popping Boba

Mango Pop Boba!

Pop!  Pop!  Pop!  Proudly serving the newest add-on available… Popping Boba!  Pop Boba is the newest phenomenon in the Bubble Tea world.  These new-age bubbles burst in your mouth with every sip.  Since they are so new, we have been only able to slowly get them in direct from Taiwan.  We currently stock mango, strawberry and lychee flavors.  We are hoping within the next month we will have passion fruit and yogurt flavors.

Quick Tip:  Looking to a surprise in every sip?  Try 2 Pop Boba flavors in one drink!  You can ask us to split the serving into 2 flavors if you like.  Every sip will be like a new adventure!
