Inspired by the summer adventures of Nicole’s 2018 family vacation, a seven-thousand-mile journey out west, her dream for the Billie Gold Bubble Tea Food Truck cracked wide open. On October 4th, 2018 Billie Gold, weighing in at 5,600 pounds and 266" long, made her debut into the world at the Levitt Pavilion in Dayton, OH. Nicole's dream became reality. For Nicole, it’s also about bringing her culture into Billie Gold. “Chinese culture revolves around feeding people.” She finds so much joy in providing “happiness in a cup” with Billie's tasty drinks and is thrilled to be Dayton’s first ‘Baroness of Bubbles.’
WHAT IS BUBBLE TEA?
Bubble tea is a cool, refreshing, sweet drink with boba, aka tapioca pearls (or flavored jellies, or popping boba) sitting on the bottom of a clear cup. It is a specialty dessert drink that comes with a fruit or milk tea base, a variety of flavors, and a uniquely fat straw to suck up the boba. Tapioca pearls are usually black but can be white or transparent in color. It varies depending on the ingredients of the pearl. The consistency of tapioca pearls are somewhere between jell-o and chewing gum. Many people think it's similar to the texture of a gummy bear. The tapioca texture is completely unique! The pearls are approximately the size of a marble.
