I hope everyone is still in the mood for bubble tea during Phase 1 of safe reopening, because there are still ways to get bubble tea-flavoured snacks and sweets safely to you, straight to your doorstep.
I don’t know about you, but when I think of bubble milk tea, I think of Taiwan and its many night markets—the aromatic street food with countless bubble tea stalls to accompany them. Because boba is such a hit in Taiwan, many of the snacks in this list consists of products imported from Taiwan, so don’t be surprised to see snacks and sweets that infuse boba with other popular Taiwanese snacks.
If boba isn’t your thing, check out our previous article on other Taiwanese snacks you can get from Shopee during this #StayHome period. For now, here are 5 boba-inspired snacks and sweets from Shopee you should check out if you’re a huge fan of the delectable beverage.
1. Royal Family Bubble Milk Tea Mochi
Starting off the list strong with a delightful chewy dessert, we have the Royal Family Bubble Milk Tea Mochi (S$5.90). For those who are unsure what mochi is, it’s a Japanese rice cake made out of a short-grain japonica glutinous rice, water, sugar and corn starch. Typically soft and chewy, mochi is a yummy dessert that is enjoyed by all.
Add the boba flavour to it and you have the perfect dessert to satisfy any bubble tea lover. Filled with a bubble tea-flavoured paste that’s made out of sword beans, black tea powder and brown sugar, there’s also a round jelly in the middle of the paste resembling a pearl.
These are available at Sheng Siong Supermarkets, but if you don’t intend to leave the house or don’t have a Sheng Siong outlet near you, opt for buying these on Shopee instead. You can get these at S$5.90 per pack, and it will be conveniently delivered to you!

2. Bubble Milk Tea Pineapple Cake
Another Taiwanese hit, there’s also the Bubble Milk Tea Pineapple Cake (S$7.40). Apart from bubble milk tea, Taiwan is also known for their pineapple cakes. They usually come in the form of flaky pastry that wraps around sweet and gooey pineapple paste.
In this rendition of the famous snack, the filling of the cake is a combination of both pineapple and bubble tea flavours, so be prepared to have a tantalising taste of the two popular Taiwanese snacks in harmony.
There are many different versions and brands of this cake, and it’s the type you’d typically spot at Ximending when you’re shopping for souvenirs. On Shopee, you don’t have to worry because these are directly imported from Taiwan.

What’s another famous Taiwanese snack most people bring back to Singapore after a rewarding holiday? If you read our article on the Taiwanese snacks you can find on Shopee, you’ll find that Cow Rolling Chives Cake is definitely a crowd favourite.
These snacks are basically chive biscuits with sweet and chewy nougat sandwiched in between them. One of my favourite snacks from Taiwan is the Cow Rolling Chives Cake. For any boba lover, the Bubble Tea Nougat Biscuit (S$8.64) will definitely tickle your fancy.
Infused with bubble tea pearls, the nougat makes for a chewy texture along with the crunchiness of the savoury biscuits. At S$8.64 for a packet of eight pieces, have the delicious combination of Taiwan’s most famous snack and beverage delivered right to your doorstep.
