If there is a time of year I love, it’s definitely autumn and in autumn all the cool stuff happens, including Halloween and Bonfire Night.
Halloween is just over a week away now and I’ve already made my plans to chill out at home, playing Luigi’s Mansion 3 with my boyfriend and relax. Not exactly the spookiest evening in the world, but it’ll be amazing nonetheless!
A couple of weekends ago I was kindly invited by both Bubble Boba and Amy over at Writing into the Ether for an evening of Halloween antics and to try the two new limited edition Halloween drinks for 2019!
I’ve been to Bubble Boba for an event in May where we all got the chance to make our own bubble tea drinks, which was so much fun! I was so happy to be invited again for an event and couldn’t wait to try the Halloween drinks that Bubble Boba have brought out for Halloween this year!
I really do love Bubble Boba and whenever I’m in Fargo Village I always make sure to pop in to grab a drink… My two favourites are red velvet cheesecake and matcha milk tea with pudding.
Both myself and my boyfriend Dane were invited to the event, which was amazing! I do love going to food and drink related events with Dane as and when I can, as I love writing about it from a couples point of view. We both love bubble tea too and are always enjoying discovering new places wherever we go.
Alongside me and Dane, both Amy and Lizzie from over at Hello Lizzie Bee were at the event too! It was lovely to see Lizzie as I hadn’t seen her for a while. 🙂 If you love my content in regards to Japan, you’ll definitely love hers!
I was excited to give the Halloween drinks a go, but sadly I was unable to try the one drink due to allergies… However, Dane tried it for me and he loved it so much!
The food and drink gifted during the evening was for reviewing purposes, so all views on this post are my own.
As I mentioned, Bubble Boba have brought out two new drinks for Halloween:
Witches Brew Apple pie milkshake – A creamy Halloween treat with sweet apple pulp, shortbread ashes and cauldron slime.
Jack-O’-Lantern Milk Tea – A tricky tea that fuses pumpkin spice with all the things nice… Can you smell burning?
Witches Brew was a definite hit with everyone, especially Dane who loved it! This is the drink I wasn’t able to try due to allergies but I’m glad he was able to enjoy it. You need to give it a good shake before you drink so that all the sweet apple pulp and shortbread can mix together! Dane described it of being a drink-apble-pie* in a thick milkshake.
*See what we did there? 😛
I tried the Jack-O’-Lantern, which was such an autumnal drink for me! I’m not a massive fan of Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks (or any coffee place for that matter!) so I worried I wasn’t going to enjoy this one. I did really like it though. I personally couldn’t taste the pumpkin… But I don’t know if this is due to the fact I don’t each much pumpkin anyway? This is just such a warming drink though and the smells and flavours from it reminded me of Bonfire Night, standing around the fire to keep warm and watching the fireworks. It really did flood memories back of the first Bonfire Night me and Dane went to in 2017. I loved it and I can’t wait to go out for Bonfire Night this year with him.
You can have your drinks hot or cold, I decided to have the Jack-O’-Lantern warm, after it was recommended to me and with some whip cream on top. It was delicious and a real treat! However, I did find I was struggling to drink it after getting halfway through. It’s a very filling drink and due to how warming it is with the flavours, for me it was a little too much. This being said though, I enjoyed it from start to finish! You could maybe go for a smaller size if you’re similar to me and now a massive spice and pumpkin fan.
Alongside drinks, we were also given some yummy bubble waffles and given the option of adding whatever we wanted to each of them! Dane opted for bubblegum and raspberry sauce and ice cream, whilst I opted for chocolate sauce and matcha powder.
Can never say no to yummy bubble waffles! I couldn’t finish mine so I took it home with me to nibble the next day. 😛
For our time there during the event we were in awe of all the amazing Halloween decorations that Bubble Boba had put up around the store! They really went for it, all whilst leaving the adorable alpaca plushies across the cupboard in the store. I loved that the store went from spooky to cute in seconds. 😛
We were also given some Halloween hats and headpieces to wear too! This was a little bit of fun and I really enjoyed it.
The night came to an end and me and Dane hung around Fargo Village for a little to chill out before we headed home.
I had such an amazing evening and although I’m not going to do much for Halloween this year, it has definitely got me into the Halloween spirit! I’m going to decorate my house on Saturday ready for the spooky week ahead!
If you’re local to Coventry, make sure to go and check out the two Halloween drinks that Bubble Boba have on offer! Which one takes your fancy?
I’ll also link down to their social media pages too, just in case you want to go and check them out and follow them! I know they recently opened up new store in Cardiff University’s student union! If you’re also local to the Coventry or Cardiff stores you can also use Deliveroo or Uber Eats to get your Bubble Boba bubble fixes direct to your door!

Until next time, take care all and I hope you’re having a lovely week so far.
