Costco Shoppers Are Freaking Out Over This Boba Milk Tea Mochi

Originating in Taiwan in the 1980s, boba tea, which typically consists of tea, milk, and chewy balls of tapioca called boba, has seemingly taken over the world, according to Eater. It shouldn't come as a surprise, then, that it's also starting to take over shelf and fridge space at grocery stores and supermarkets, including warehouse giant Costco, whose recent inventory has included such items as boba instant packs, boba-filled cakes, and even boba ice cream bars. Well, add boba milk tea and mochi, a sweet glutinous rice treat popular in Japan (via Allrecipes), to that mix.

It's something that has not gone unnoticed by fans of Costco, boba tea, and mochi on social media. In a recent Instagram post, @costcobuyer announced, "Boba milk tea mochi is a really tasty snack! It's just $6.99 for this 60-count bag. I recommend freezing these...SO GOOD!" The post has already received nearly 2,000 likes, with several people noting that they needed to go try some, with comments like, "These sound amazing!" and "Oh my goodness! NEED."

The boba milk tea mochi is a hit

Several Instagram comments are from fans that have already tried the boba milk tea mochi. One reviewer wrote, "Just here to confirm they are GOOD," while another concurred, "So good! I just ate some." Only one reviewer thought that they were too sweet. The key may be to keep the bag really cold, as in freezer cold, as @costcobuyer recommends. The product may contain boba, but it's a mochi, which is best stored in the freezer.

Fans who want to try some of this sweet treat for themselves should follow the example of one of the commenters, who replied, "Omggggggggggggggg *runs to Coscto*." That's because the item has already been discontinued, in certain areas, including it seems in New Jersey, as some rather disappointed Costco shoppers pointed out in the comments. One fan noted that they are still available in the Bay Area, at least for now. However, it's not clear how long that will last, so run, don't walk, to your nearest Costco, or risk disappointment when these disappear for good.
