Popping Boba Sodas

Del Taco's New Sprite Poppers are Made with Flavored Popping Boba Pearls

— June 27, 2020 — Lifestyle
Del Taco is ushering in summer 2020 with the debut of its new Sprite Poppers—a fizzy new pair of drinks that are bursting with tropical flavors.

Del Taco's new Sprite Poppers are like a cross between citrus-flavored soda and bubble tea. The new drinks start with Sprite lemon-lime soda, which is then combined with either mango or cherry-flavored popping boba. The popping boba are essentially chewy tapioca balls featuring a thin shell on the outside, and mango or cherry-flavored juice on the inside. The result is a sweet and fizzy summer drink with the added burst of cherry or mango flavor.

Del Taco's new Sprite Poppers are available now at participating locations nationwide.
