What We Thought of The New Boba-Inspired Brown Sugar Jelly
Being an avid boba fan (meaning I’m obsessed and have boba at least 3 times a week!) I didn’t have high expectations for Peet’s brown sugar jelly only because I’ve had some really great jellies and boba from cafes that specialize in toppings like these.
However, I’m a huge fan of Peet’s Coffee and had to check them out. I ordered the Brown Sugar Cold Brew Oat Latte. I’ve had this latte before and love it so it was a matter of dissecting the new jelly topping.
The jelly was surprisingly very tasty, and not too sweet. It was not overpowering in brown sugar flavor, in my opinion, it could have used more. The chewiness resembled eating clear gelatin with a good bite and chew so it wasn’t a super soft jelly.
My main gripe was that they don’t nearly give you enough of it! I got a large size which is a hefty 20 oz cup. I watched how much jelly they added to my cup and it seemed from my estimation that it was 1/8 of a cup or just two tablespoons.
For the large size, I think they should double the amount since it didn’t seem proportionate to the amount of liquid in the drink.
For a good boba or jelly drink, you definitely want to have a good ratio of drink to topping! The good news is you can always ask for more jelly for an additional $.75.
One more way to enhance the drink is to add more brown sugar mixture/syrup down the cup. As you can tell from the photos the iced coffee sadly lacked the brown sugar stripes that are so popular in Asian cafes of brown sugar iced drinks you see on social media.
Now that you know about Peet’s Summer of Jelly, it’s time to try it yourself! Don’t forget to add some bouncy Brown Sugar Jelly to your drink for a bit of fun.
This is the perfect option if you’re looking for a cooling pick-me-up or a new way to enjoy your favorite beverage.
While there may be a few flavors you would do just about anything to get your hands on, try something different and give these a shot!
