New York-based startup BUBLUV, Inc. recently launched its first product: a better-for-you, ready-to-drink bottled bubble tea. In this episode of the Xtalks Food Podcast, Sydney talks about how the brand differs from others bubble teas on the market, namely that it contains fewer calories and sugar than its competitors. She talks about how the growing bubble tea market and the constant demand for better-for-you beverages will help BUBLUV succeed. The team brings attention to relatively unhealthy aspects of traditional bubble tea and commend the brand for creating a healthier alternative.
Also, in this episode, Sydney discusses Gerber’s new line of plant-based baby food called Plant-tastic.
