Milk Tea and Cereal? It Makes More Sense Than You Think.

Who doesn’t love cereal? It has always been an important and irreplaceable part of my diet… more so than even coffee. Fountain city has given me an excuse to merge two of my favorite things, with a twist. I visited them on #trysomethingnewtuesday, in the mood to, well, try something new. The barista gave me his personal recommendation and followed it up with the two new unique options that I try below!
 
Taro and Pops
The K-Pop Freeze in the Wild

If you follow on Instagram, you may have seen mention of the Taro bubble tea that tastes like cookies. Well, turns out, it goes great with Pops cereal, and the birthday cake Cookie Crisp. Whoever came up with this idea was absolutely inspired. These flavors work so well together- the sweet, yet somehow earthy, Taro just works with cereal. I’d like to try a Frosted flake variant, actually.

 
This freezer may blow the heath out of the water as my favorite choice from them. The caramel is mellow alongside the noticeably distinct flavor of the Pops. Not going to lie, I LOVE Pops cereal and always have. The flavor has always been so great for the times when I want just a hint of sweetness. The Taro adds a certain richness to this Freezer that’s a touch decadent and definitely more than a little filling. 
 
I used nonfat milk and luckily, it doesn’t detract from the flavor. The K-Pop is like drinking milk and cereal. I love it. I definitely recommend this for those who are young at heart or are just hardcore cereal lovers. If you grew up eating Pops Corn cereal and like nostalgia, look no further! 
 
Taro and Cooki Crisp
The Birthday Cake Freezer- AKA Sugar Cookie Freezer

I was going to do a whole second post, but honestly, it would be redundant. The Birthday Cake Freeze was similarly sweet, but not overpowering. My first taste of this one was pretty much all Taro, so I definitely recommend a brisk stirring before you enjoy this beverage! I sloshed it like a fine wine and tried again- the next try was much more cereal and milk, than Taro.

 
It (of course) quite reminds me of the K-Pop Freeze, I imagine due to the Taro in both of them. That’s not to say this one isn’t distinctive in its own way. It does lack caramel, so doesn’t mimic its partner. If I didn’t know it was Birthday Cake flavored, I’d probably think it was Sugar Cookie. That’s not a bad thing, either, I absolutely love sugar cookies. 
 
If you twisted my arm and told me to say something, not in a rave review of these drinks- I’d have to pick the really played-down color. Taro is purple, and these drinks are barely colored by it. It’s more of an aesthetic gripe than anything else. I’m all about unusually colored drinks and such, so I was hyped to try these.
 
 
 

K-Pop Freezer Taste; /5

   This Iconic and inventive nostalgia-trip deserves no less than 5/5 for flavor and bonus points for creativity. I have never seen, heard, or thought of anything like this. I can’t wait to see what the awesome folks over at Fountain City Coffee come up with next!

Birthday Cake FreezerTaste; /5

This one, while fantastic, was not completely identifiable as Birthday Cake. It didn’t really stand on it’s own as a unique drink next to its partner. It did taste much more like Sugar Cookies than anything else, which still made me really happy.

 

If you’re local to the Columbus, Georgia area be sure to drop by Fountain City Coffee to try these before they’re gone!
