The past one year of lockdown has seen some interesting food trends emerge. From Dalgona coffee to banana bread, Tsunami cakes to hyperreal cakes - there have been so many dishes and recipes which caught the fancy of social media users. Bubble tea recently found itself among the food trends online. This milky concoction is a popular delight all across the world, especially in the United States. Chewy tapioca pearls paired with a delightful and refreshing tea make for a delicious drink every time. But did you know there is a bubble tea shortage currently in the United States? According to reports, one of the key ingredients used in Bubble tea is facing a delayed shipment.
The tapioca balls or 'Boba' usually are found in Taiwan and other South Asian countries, but of late, they have been facing delays in shipments. Producers and suppliers are not able to identify when the supply of Boba pearls will be restored. "If and when we run out of boba, we believe demand will shift to other toppings. But even those toppings are running low due to the same supply chain issues," wrote popular bubble tea chain 'Boba Guys' in an Instagram post.
