Grab a cup of bubble tea and say “cheers” to National Tapioca Day on Friday!
Those chewy bubbles at the bottom of the tea are tapioca pearls.
It’s a big culinary trend that started in Taiwan.
The pearls are also used to make tapioca pudding.
Tapioca is a starch extracted from the cassava plant.
It can also be made into a flour used to make a flatbread.
Be sure to take photos of whatever tapioca treats you enjoy Friday and post them to social media using the hashtag #NationalTapiocaDay.
