The SB Corner Store offers the traditional tapioca pearls in value-sized boxes of 3 for an affordable price. Tapioca pearls (also called boba) are used to create a popular Taiwanese and Chinese dessert called bubble tea. As a sweet treat, bubble tea consists of black tea or fruit flavoured iced tea sweetened with sugar and served with chewy tapioca pearls and a thick straw. These tapioca pearls are cooked, ready to eat, and delicious. They are opaque white with some colour variation (usually dark brown).
