May is Asian American and Pacific Islander month, and what better way to say this than to sample a variety of Asian treats! Daisy Phillips joined us in the studio today to show us some of her favorite treats.
One of their top recommendations is to try boba at one of the many boba shops opening in the Salt Lake Valley. While boba is commonly thought of as lots of tapioca balls in iced tea, Phillips reminds us that boba is much more than that. With a variety of different teas to try ranging from milk teas to fruit teas to aloe or yakult probiotic drinks for those trying to avoid caffeine, those wanting even more options can skip boba and opt for instead Pudding or jellies decide.
Phillips also shared with us some of her favorite candies and snacks, including Japanese soda-flavored fizzy candies, lychee jelly, yakult, Asian caramels, shrimp chips and Japanese rice crackers. Surae also shared with us one of her favorite childhood treats; dried plums!
