Gave that mystery konjac another chance - KEEP (drink version only)

Tuck | Jul 13, 2005 01:18 AM

I wasn't curious enough about Bin Bin Konjac to actually make another trip out there. Someone actually bought a konjac drink for me, so I had to try it. Thankfully, BBK has been redeemed. I tried the strawberry shake with konjac. I was told that they pureed fresh strawberries rather than syrupy, sugary, strawberry topping. Definite plus. The drink was initially a tad sweet, but as the ice melted and diluted the liquid, it became the perfect dessert drink in this hot weather we're having. I do still enjoy the texture of the konjac cubes yet still don't know what they are. I just love the pop as the cubes give way to a bite. The cubes are not chewy like boba balls but almost crunchy. Konjac could be aiming to be the next boba. Perhaps the key to enjoying BBK is to avoid the shaved ice versions and go for the drink versions. In any case, I could find myself making the drive to pick up a konjac drink in the future now that they've redeemed themselves in my mouth. Drink version is a keeper.
