So... apparently this is a thing. Why am I not as excited for this as I am for PI Day or May the 4th Be With You Day or Talk Like a Pirate Day? Well, because it's tapioca. The most mocked of all of the pudding flavors. So, I did some digging as to why anyone would dedicate a day to this and. . . I still don't get it.
Tapioca is made from a South American root and is a starch that can be used in place of wheat. It promotes healthy weight gain and is good for calcium. But the only part I'm really interested in are the balls.
Stop giggling. I'm talking about tapioca balls! In Boba tea! Boba balls! Why did your laughter get louder when I tried to explain. Why are you laughing as someone who enjoys Boba ba-
Oh. I hear it now. I'll be quiet.
