At this point, the Bay Area has welcomed the brown sugar boba craze with open taste buds. The cascade of brown sugar syrup swirling in fresh milk atop chewy boba is not only in every major Bay Area city at various shops, it now also comes in ice cream bar form at Safeway. It’s in mochi form at Costco. Food nerds, however, will want to make a pilgrimage to Tiger Sugar in Cupertino. It’s the only Northern California location of the Taiwanese boba chain that’s responsible for popularizing the brown sugar boba trend. Guzzle down the signature Black Sugar Boba Milk with Cream Mousse, add green or black tea to the original version, or get the Tiger Sugar brand ice cream bars and Tiger Sugar Popcorn to restart the sugar hit when the last boba pearl has been sucked up.
