Team leader Ashley Smith told MTL Blog the health bar is based on an existing concept and model. We found that these bars typically use products and recipes supplied by Herbalife Nutrition, a global multi-level marketing corporation.
To celebrate its new location in the Old Port of Montreal, One Babo is serving up $2 bubble teas all day Saturday starting at 12 p.m., as long as you follow its Instagram page. The first 50 people will actually get their boba totally free.
One Babo, formerly called One More Thé, has another location on Chemin Queen Mary in Côte-des-Neiges. This is its second time opening in the Old Port after the previous location had to close last year due to COVID-19.
"This year, we were lucky to be able to open once more in our favourite place in Montreal, but in a different spot," said Karen Chen, One Babo's external coordinator.
Chen described One Babo as an international expansion of a Taiwanese boba chain.
"We specialize in authentic Taiwanese boba drinks with an innovative twist, with unique flavours and toppings for everybody to enjoy," Chen said.
Here's what you can expect to find on the menu on July 3:
Classic One Babo Milk Tea
Jasmine Tea Jelly Lemonade
Black Iced Tea with Boba
Violet Crystal (Yakult®)
Grapefruit Green Tea
Pouchong Rice Honey Tea with Boba
The drinks will be served in "regular fat cups," according to Chen, and they will all include a topping!

Everyone loves churros — what could be bad about fried choux pastry dough covered in cinnamon sugar and sometimes stuffed with caramel or chocolate? If you're getting hungry just thinking about the popular Latin American treat, then mark your calendar because you now officially have plans at Churros Montreal on Saturday.
To celebrate its 22nd anniversary of operation, Churros Montreal will be selling churros for $1 on June 19.
Sugar Sammy posted a side-by-side photo of the PQ's first official win with founder René Levesque in 1976 and compared it to modern-day PQ politics, with PQ leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon announcing a motion for the flag emoji via Twitter.
PQ leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon said a Quebec flag emoji and Facebook emoticon would be a "symbolic gesture of [Quebec's] right to express its pride."
The Unicode Consortium website — which is the organization responsible for creating emojis — shows that a request by the Quebec government for a flag emoji, submitted on September 12, 2019, is currently "under consideration."
For starters, it tastes like bubble tea and is topped with actual black sugar boba bubbles. The owner, Daisy Yuan, used to have a bubble tea shop near Places-des-Arts called Coin Bleury. When it closed due to the pandemic, she said she turned her attention to baking.
"I love bubble tea and lighter cakes like chiffon. It's not easy to find this kind of style in Montreal so I might as well start baking," Yuan told MTL Blog.
This particular cake is made with Earl Grey chiffon, a layer of Assam milk tea panna cotta, Earl Grey crème chantilly and a dash of black sugar syrup, Yuan said.
Then there's the tsunami aspect. As you unwrap your cake, it overflows like a waterfall, allowing the creamy toppings to cover the entirety of the cake.
Lastly, Ri Yue offers 4-inch bento cakes made for one to two people, which makes sense considering "bento" is a Japanese lunch box. The bento aspect may just be the best part because it means you can eat a whole damn cake to yourself.
A bento boba tsunami cake costs $10.99. For a full list of Ri Yue's baked offerings, check out its website.
