Damn - £9.80 for that.

I swear the mark up must be incredible.

Huge queues too.

Didnít realise it was a trendy thing, itís quite refreshing but reallyÖIím in the wrong business.

Though you were talking bubble and squeak, great do, don't even know what that other stuff is, and don't want to know tbh.

It's a drink with some tea, some sugary blobs, ice and a £4 plus price tag

All the kids love it - and I'll be frank with you - on a hot day it's pretty refreshing.

Could be a fad but for now, it's a weekly treat chez Heathers post rowing.

The tentacles of China hit the windy dark shores of Aberdeen.....

Is there anywhere these tick tock algorithms can't get in....

I'm a sucker aren't I?

You just know that in 5 years you'll be watching TV with your missus and see me on the news after having been scammed by Nigerian astronauts or whatever

You live in Aberdeen, how the f*** would you know

Seen little kiosks suddenly pop up all over the place selling this, no Idea what it is. I thought it might involve some sort of shisha pipe

Had them in London too - was good there tbf tbs tbs tbph

They're pretty tasty tbh and come in a lot of fun flavours.

They're just sugar water really - I dread to think of the profit margins.

Always presumed it was for pre-teen girls, know most of my daughters mates have out grown it now.

First saw this about 12 years ago when stopping over in Hong Kong on the way to Sydney for a mates wedding.

Friends of friends kids were absolutely mad for the stuff, I should've got on the bandwagon & been the first to import it here

Never had it, looks like tapioca on steroids

Disgusting imo. It was a Taiwanese thing that got imported to China. First ever time I went out with the future wife she bought one. Was tempted to walk away right then.

Couldn't move for them here at one point. Like frozen yoghurt shops on steroids. Was a lot of franchising scams going on. Set up a store, give huge discounts, queues round the block. But once the discounts were dropped (which they had to given HK rents) so did the business.
