On days when you can’t make it to a boba shop, wouldn’t it be nice to reach into your freezer instead to make a boba drink in an instant? Well, with Boba Bam’s Instant Boba — which recently arrived in some Costco stores this month — you can. And according to Costco Hot Finds, they’re not only super easy to make, but they’re also delicious.

Boba Bam Instant Boba comes in one delicious flavor, brown sugar, and the packs of 12 are available for $10.99 each. Each box comes with straws, too.
Making the instant boba is super-easy: Simply microwave the pouch for 60 seconds (or, you can drop the pouch in hot water and let it thaw that way, as Costco Hot Finds did), pour into a cup, add ice, and top with milk.
“The texture of the boba balls is as good as store bought boba, and the brown sugar flavor sweetens your drink!” Boba Bam writes on Reddit. “It’s really convenient when you want to grab a boba drink, and don’t want to wait in line at the store.”
