With Thursday, July 19 (aka #GetToKnowYourCustomersDay) just around the bend, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to reflect on what our customers are saying about us!

Our customer Chelsea left us the review below on Yelp. Seeing how much she appreciates Fruitealicious (and bubble tea in general) brought some bigs smiles to our face. You may not know this yet so we appreciate Chelsea reminding everyone that we are on UberEats! Hopping on UberEats is the perfect solutions for days when you’re just not willing to leave the comfort of your cozy home. Although Chelsea hasn’t tried it yet, we can assure you that the Purple Orea is as good as it looks, if not better!

"The way I evaluate the quality of a bubble tea shop is by always ordering the staple classic milk tea. At Fruitealicious, located inside the 99 Ranch grocery store, you get your choice of 25-100% sweetness. I chose 50% and that was the perfect level of sweetness. And the milk tea was tasty. Bubbles were perfect balance of chewy and flavorful, without being too much of either. So, they knocked it out of the ballpark! The menu selection is quite robust so I may come back to try some other drinks like the purple Oreo shake. This store is also connected to UberEats in case you wanted to have your drinks delivered! I am sad I did not discover this establishment sooner than I did. I will definitely be back."

Jonlin, another happy customer, left us an equally humbling review! It looks like everyone is loving our new location opened in partnership with 99 Ranch Grocery.Our six locations make it easier than ever to pick up bubble tea across the Dallas, Forth Worth and Austin areas.

“Love this place! super convenient when I pick up stuff from Ranch 99. Service is great and the people are super friendly. I'm a regular at a couple of their other locations and am stoked they opened this one up in Ranch 99. Keep on rockin'!”

3 Summer Party Ideas that Pair Perfectly with Bubble Tea

With school out for the summer, party planning is in full swing! Take advantage of the longer, slower days ahead to get some party planning in the books. We took the liberty of drumming up some party ideas that pair perfectly with our favorite drink, ice cold bubble tea!

AdobeStock_147153938 (1).jpg

Crawfish Boil

Gather friends and family around your longest table and warn them of the mess to come. While huge pots, crawfish, potatoes and plenty of napkins are likely already on your shopping list, don’t you dare forget the bubble tea! A perfect alternative to alcohol, having bubble tea on hand will add a fun twist to a traditional crawfish boil.

BBQ

Nothing quenches the heat of some spicy barbeque as effectively as an ice cold bubble tea! Admittedly, a cold pool helps too! Grilling up some wings, burgers and hot dogs will round out the perfect summer BBQ.

Picnic at the Park

Planning a party doesn’t have to be complicated or stress-inducing. Some of the best parties we’ve ever attended are those that are simple! A casual and low-key picnic in the park can make for the most perfect of summer celebrations. Wrangle up the friends, a few big blankets and some snacks to munch on and you’re well on your way to planning your picnic party. We can only think of one thing that would put your picnic over the top, bubble tea of course.

Regardless of what kind of party your host this summer, don’t forget to add drinks to your shopping list. Stop by one of our Fruitealicious locations to pick up refreshing beverages for your guests. Not only will you check one item off your party-planning checklist but you’ll add a fun element to your shindig!

Berry Delicious Options from Fruitealicious 

AdobeStock_88040665 (2).jpg

Our commitment to serving only the freshest of ingredients means that we keep a close eye on seasonal fruit offerings. Since we’re in the thick of strawberry season, we thought it appropriate to highlight some berry delicious options on the Fruitealicious menu! 

Strawberries Galore

Some of the sweetest strawberries you’ll eat are those deep red strawberries available from mid-June to early July. Those are exactly the kind of strawberries we use to make our ever-popular strawberry shortcake! Served on ice, our strawberry shortcake is smooth and best of all, mixed with whip cream. Topped with freshly diced strawberries, it’s sure to help quench your craving for some fresh berries.

Ode to Chocolate

One of our favorite things to mix with strawberries should come as no surprise. Chocolate! Our chocolate covered strawberries concoction is both indulgent and refreshing as it is served on ice. Decadent dutch chocolate and strawberries for the win. Drizzled in chocolate and topped off with a fresh strawberry, it’s truly hard to resist. 

Chillers & Smoothies

Our extensive smoothie and slushy options are packed full of berry-centered deliciousness. A few to choose from include some classics like mango strawberry, strawberry peach and strawberry banana. For a more tropical take we highly recommend trying kiwi strawberry or lychee strawberry!

Berry Unique Options

We’ve said it before but we think it’s worth saying it again. Here at Fruitealicious we always encourage both our customers and our team members to be creative. If you have a berry unique concept you’d like to mix up and try, dream it up and we’ll mix it up. Simply select a base, flavor and mixers and leave the rest to us. Remember that we have both raspberry and strawberry as flavor options. You can also add strawberry jellies and blueberry or strawberry pops to your one-of-a-kind creation. 
 

Our Top Favorite Fruitealicious-friendly Summer Activities

As the heat of the Texan summer rays beat down on us all, we rounded up some of our favorite Fruitealicious-friendly activities.  

AdobeStock_141415468 (1).jpg

Austin

We might be new to the Austin area but boy have we heard a lot about the Barton Springs Pool. Fed by underground springs, the Springs are an ideal way to while away a summer day. Sipping on a Fruitealicious beverage while perching at the edge of the springs sounds pretty incredible to us. Might we also recommend hiking to the top of Mount Bonnell, kayaking on Lady Bird Lake and exploring the Barton Creek Greenbelt?

Dallas

Taking a walk around Klyde Warren Park is not only a fun way to spend an afternoon, but it’s a healthy outdoor activity. Bring the dog and check out this vibrant green space in Dallas. Another fun option is to pack up your fishing gear and tackle and head over to White Rock Lake. For the creatively inclined, visit the Arts District in downtown Dallas. Spanning 19 blocks, a stroll through the district provides an unparalleled opportunity to explore a wide variety of masterpieces. Don’t forget that we have two Fruitealicious locations in Carrolton, Texas!

Freestyle

We are not ones to limit our customers creativity, so we highly recommend coming up with your own Fruitealicious-approved summer happening! We can happily vouch for how perfect a Fruitealicious beverage is at a BBQ, pool party or a picnic at the park. Regardless of where your adventures take you this summer, a Fruitealicious beverage in hand is highly encourages so don’t forget to pop by one our stores. Pick up a refreshing bubble tea on your way to check any of these out! Our beverages make for the perfect pairing for just about any summer activity. You can find the full list of our locations here.

Why Bubble Tea is the Perfect Summer Drink

Swap out sweet tea for a drink that’s equally refreshing, thirst-quenching and flavor-packed. Our favorite Taiwanese beverage, bubble tea is the perfect drink to beat the brutal summer heat of Texas.

The Pinnacle of Freshness

Not only is bubble tea itself majorly refreshing, but all of the ingredients we use are as fresh as possible! Even our tapioca balls are made in-house in small batches to ensure consistency in both taste and quality. Served up with an extra-wide straw, our bubble teas should be consumed quickly to retain their freshness. Topping our recommendation list is our Aloe-Ha refresher which is infused with fresh strawberries and freshly diced aloe vera.

AdobeStock_178720957.jpg

Majorly Customizable

One of the many incredible aspects of bubble tea is how customizable it is! With a wide variety of refreshing concoctions available, we have plenty of bases and toppings to choose from. Whether you prefer a classic tea base, a tart lemonade base or an energy-jolting coffee base, we’ve got just the thing for you. A long list of mixers such as fruit, pops and boba provides plenty of opportunities to tweak your beverage to your taste preferences and express your individuality.

Switch It Up

You can sip on fruit-infused water or iced coffee any day of the week. Why not try something new and sip on bubble tea instead? While it’s not new to the beverage scene, we still have plenty of first-time customers who have never tried bubble tea before. Switch up your hydration habits and try the best bubble tea in Texas instead.

With our six locations across Texas, it’s never been easier to pop into Fruitealicious for a refreshing bubble tea.  Remember, we’re open seven days a week year-round and are here to help you navigate the unrelenting heat this summer will bring!

4 Things to Know About Bubble Tea

Whether you’re trying bubble tea for the first time or you’ve been slurping tapioca balls from your favorite class milk tea for ages, we’re confident you don’t know all there is to know about bubble tea. We thought we’d share four fun bubble tea-related facts for the benefit of the novice and advanced bubble tea aficionado alike.

Classic Milk Tea

Trying something new can be overwhelming, especially when just about everything on the menu looks like something you’d enjoy. If you’re looking to try a classic and ever-popular bubble tea, trying a classic milk tea is a great place to start. It is the most traditional form of the popular beverage that so many in states have grown to know and love. The perfection combination between sugar, milk powder and black tea, no two classic milk teas taste exactly the same.

Toppings Differentiate Bubble Tea

There are hundreds of thousands of bubble tea combinations out there, we come up with original combinations regularly! One of the things that differentiates bubble teas most, however, are the toppings. Tapioca is one of the most common toppings but fresh fruit, jellies and popping boba are common, too!

Quality Matters

Especially when making the tapioca balls, using high quality is essential to a quality bubble tea drink. It helps that here at Fruitealicious we make our tapioca fresh and in small batches each and every day.

Fruitealicious Makes the Best Bubble Tea

That’s right, we might be biased but be stand by it! Offering our delicious bubble tea in six different locations across Texas, it’s more convenient than ever to scoop up some bubble tea to sip on. With the summer heat quickly approaching, we highly recommend you figure out which location is most convenient for you to visit, and fast!

Refreshing Tropical Blends from Fruitealicious

Is it too early to start thinking about summer? We think not here at Fruitealicious! While we serve up tons of tropically-inspired smoothies and slushies year-round, we’re especially excited to serve them as the heat of summer approaches. Think cold, refreshing mixes featuring mango, coconut, pineapple, passionfruit and strawberry. Our dedication to using only the freshest ingredients ensures that you’ll appreciate each delicious blend.

Fruit.jpg

Mango Passionfruit

Mango and passionfruit, a delicious and dynamic duo in any tropically-inspired beverage! As one of the most popular fruits in the world, mango has long been a staple in beverages and dishes alike. Papaya, grown throughout Central and South America rounds out the sweet taste of the mango. We’re also incorporating mango into a few other delicious combinations like green apple mango, mango pineapple, kiwi mango and peach mango.

Pina Colada

Nothing is quite as synonymous with the tropics as a pina colada. The perfect marriage between coconut and pineapple, it’s a refreshing option to welcome in the summer months ahead. Coconut is electrolyte-packed, making it a hydration power fruit!

Lychee Strawberry

Exotic and nutrient dense, the lychee fruit comes from tropical areas of China. Packed with health and medicinal benefits, our sweet tasting lychee strawberry blend is the perfect ode to tropical days ahead.

Fruit.jpeg

El Diablo

Not for the faint of heart, this spicy frozen treat packs a bit of a punch! This delicious collaboration of sweet and spicy is tropically-inspired and mango based. A roller-coaster of taste, the El Diablo will take you on a ride featuring a little bit of everything, sweet, salty, and spicy!

Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Chocolate covered strawberries is a combination of dutch chocolate and sweet strawberries, need we say more? If you’re looking for the ultimate chocolatey indulgence, this is most definitely the right choice for you!

Spotted Cow

The Spotted Cow combines two of our favorite things, smooth caramel and sweet tapioca! Topped with flan pudding, this frozen treat is doused in rich caramel. Tapioca pearls add even more texture to this creamy blend.

Purple Oreo

Don’t let it’s vibrant color scare you away. Purple Oreo is the perfect marriage between Taro and a favorite chocolate cookies, oreos! Creamy and sweet, Taro is made from a root that tastes a lot like vanilla, offering just the right amount of creamy taste to this blend.

Strawberry Shortcake

No stranger to a timeless classic, we really enjoy this satisfying frozen creation. A berry-packed treat, Strawberry Shortcake is the perfect mix of strawberries and whip cream! Warning: this may bring back memories of long summer days spent baking in the Texas sun.

If you’re still reading and haven’t already jumped in the car to drive over for one of these, we applaud you. Don’t you worry, each of our five (soon to be six!) locations is open seven days a week! Stop in today to try one of these five tasty frozen treats.

Our Core Values: The Fruitealicious 5

Fulfilling our mission of empowering people to live their lives to the fullest would not be possible without staying true to our five core values! Our values of persistence, effort, attitude, communication, and empathy serve as the guiding star for all that we do at Fruitealicious. 

Persistence

Especially when working to overcome adversity, we truly believe that persistence is a key ingredient! Regardless of how difficult a feat may seem, we recognize the power of getting up and persisting time and time again to succeed.

Effort

We’re sure that you’ve heard the saying, “you get out what you put in.” A commitment to putting forth maximum effort at all times is essential to our company culture. Our team members come to work every day and put their best foot forward to get the job done!

AdobeStock_70823192.jpeg

Attitude

We believe that a positive attitude goes a long way, not just at work but in our personal sphere of influence. That’s why when you walk into any one of our Fruitealicious locations; you’ll be greeted by one of our smiling, helpful team members. We hope that our positive attitude and good vibes will stay with you long after you’ve slurped up your boba tea.

Communication

There’s no arguing the importance of communication in establishing positive and productive relationships with others. We’ve found this to be true in the foodservice industry as well! 

Empathy

You’ll notice that many Fruitealicious team members are young, that hiring move was intentional! We were all young once too looking for our first job so when we started this business we knew we wanted to give young people opportunities. Beyond wanting to help them thrive in their first job, we want them to gain life skills along the way! Acting with empathy is just one of the five values we instill in our employees. 

Fruitealicious would not be the extraordinary company that it is without the support of our incredible customers and hardworking staff! We are thrilled to serve communities that support the core values we espouse. 

Peace, Love, Boba: it’s in our mission, after all! Stop in and visit us at one of our many locations to see our mission and values at work. 

Scary Good Milk Teas

During the spookiest month of the year, milk tea is known to keep the ghouls, goblins and ghosts away! All jokes aside, a creamy milk tea is appropriate any time of the year. Be sure to stop in and try any of our delicious iced milk teas.  

Classic

In our humble opinion, you can never go wrong when ordering a classic milk bubble tea. With a strong flavor of tea, this traditional option is very creamy and rich in taste. If you can’t choose between all of the delicious milk tea options we have at Fruitealicious, the Classic is a great place to start!

Almond

Almond milk tea is a great option for vegetarians and vegans alike as it is dairy-free. With a slightly nutty twist, this milk tea option won’t disappoint! We highly recommend topping your almond milk tea with some chia seeds which will add an energy boost and contain protein and fiber.

Coconut

Looking for a tropical take on your milk tea? Try the coconut milk tea and let your imagination take you back to memories of your summer beach trip. Adding mango and pineapple jellies is highly encouraged!

AdobeStock_125876982.jpeg

Taro

Made from taro root, taro milk tea makes for a thick, creamy concoction. Described as sweet and creamy, taro has a unique flavor but is said to taste like vanilla by some people. Don’t hesitate to add some tapioca to your taro tea to give this thick treat some added texture.

Matcha

It seems like matcha is all the rage lately. It’s antioxidant and detoxifying properties offer up two health-related reasons to order the matcha milk tea! Don’t let it’s vivid green color scare you away, matcha milk tea is another tasty option on our menu.

Whatever halloween-related frights you face this month, a yummy milk tea will bring you plenty of comfort whether you’re kicking back at home or donning your goofiest costume bopping around town.

The Low-Down on Tapioca

If you’ve ever had bubble tea, you probably think of tapioca as those delicious, chewy balls found in your glass. No? Perhaps you’ve enjoyed the small pearls in tapioca pudding. Regardless, you may still be left wondering, what exactly is tapioca?  

 

Cassava Root (Yuca)  

Tapioca is actually a starch that is extracted from the cassava root, known in some parts of the world as yuca. The root is mainly grown in tropical and subtropical areas throughout Asia, South America and Africa. Originally produced in Northern brazil, most tapioca production now comes from Brazil, Thailand and Nigeria. In many parts of the world, yuca is a staple food source.  

 

From Root to Tapioca 

After being harvested, toxins are removed from the cassava root before the starch is processed. The starch is what we’re interested in because it is formed into the ball-shaped pearls we put in bubble tea! Pearls, however, are only one form that tapioca comes in. It can also be formed into powder, sticks or flakes.

Tapioca Uses 

We’ve already discussed two uses for tapioca, tapioca pudding and bubble tea. Tapioca is also known to be a very effective thickening and can be used to thicken soups. This should come as no surprise but our favorite use for tapioca is using pearls in our bubble tea, of course! Here at Fruitealicious, we believe that fresh ingredients are key to creating a tea that is both refreshing and delicious. You’ll find that we cook our tapioca in small batches throughout the day to ensure that they are fresh for our customers at all times.  

 

What do tapioca balls taste like? In our opinion, they taste like caramel! That flavor has a lot to do with them being infused with brown sugar. Whether you have yet to try tapioca or you’re a tapioca connoisseur, we look forward to treating you to some of our bubble tea. Find us at any one of our five locations and look for our sixth location coming soon to Austin!
