SF Eats: Smitten Ice Cream x Boba Guys
Two of the hottest local businesses in the Bay area have decided to combine forces and create delicious tea-flavored ice creams to blow your mind! At the Smitten Ice Cream x Boba Guys launch party, we got the inside scoop (GET IT?!) on the new flavors they've been working on for the last few months. Shocker: they're all super delicious!
Although there were 3 flavors that debuted at the party, the release schedule is not as straightforward as you'd think. First, there was a Duke of Earl Grey flavor that was ONLY at the party, so, sorry, but you're not going to be able to try it anywhere! Second, the other 2 flavors will be launching at different times, but Andrew (Boba Guys) and Robyn (Smitten) shared that another exclusive, Chinese New Year flavor was being worked on for next year. I found out what it was but can't share just yet (hint: it's something that Asians have been asking for for a LONG time).
Key takeaways on the flavor releases:
- Dirty Horchata (espresso + horchata) will be sold in all Bay Area shops starting the first week of November
- The Strawberry Matcha Latte and secret Chinese New Year flavors will be launched early next year
- Each flavor will have about a 2-month run in all the Bay Area Smitten Ice Cream shops
