Tapioca Day?

June 28 is National Tapioca Day!

I was never really a fan of tapioca pudding growing up, so about 12 years ago when I was introduced to boba and bubble tea, I really wasn't interested in trying it. Since boba was explained to me like a soft gummy bear that has a sweet taste, I gave it a try.

Tapioca Pearls

Tapioca pearls are make from the starch of the cassava root. When cooked, these pearls become a sweet chewy ball with a gummy bear texture. Tapioca pearls or boba are added to various drinks, such as tea, milk, juice, smoothies, and coffee.
