That nostalgic candy from our childhood, White Rabbit candy, has suddenly become very popular again, with shops incorporating the milky sweet in unique food and drinks creations. This year marks the 60th anniversary of this creamy white candy and in conjunction with this, a pop-up bubble tea store partnering with Happy Lemon and a merchandise store was opened in LuOne mall in Shanghai.
Of course, when word of this special pop-up store started to spread, fans of White Rabbit candy were excited and many of them couldn’t wait to visit the event. There were tons of merchandise on sale as well with items like perfume, body lotion, scent diffusers, bags and many more, Sohu reported.
While all of this merchandise looks amazing, people were more excited over the highly anticipated range of White Rabbit bubble tea drinks and on opening day, more than 1,000 cups of bubble tea were sold, according to a report by Sinchew. In fact, some people had to queue for more than four hours just to get their hands on one of the six flavours of White Rabbit bubble tea available.
These flavours are the White Rabbit Lemon Tea, White Rabbit Lemon Tea with Ice Cream, White Rabbit Milk Tea, White Rabbit Milk Tea with Crystal Pearls, White Rabbit Tiramisu Milk Tea and White Tiramisu Red Bean Milk Tea. The prices of these drinks range between 19 and 25 yuan (RM11 to RM15) and come with the adorable White Rabbit logo that makes it look perfect for photos.
The next day, the queue was just as crazy and it was reported that each customer could only buy two cups of the bubble tea so that other people in the line could try some as well. The super long queue and the limited amount of drinks one person could buy means that some people tried to take advantage of the situation, and there were scalpers who resold their drinks at four to five times the original price.
Some scalpers were selling it at 70 yuan to 150 yuan (RM42 to RM90) but the highest price for a cup of the coveted bubble tea apparently reached 488 yuan (RM289)! Wah, so expensive! The pop-up bubble tea store is expected to be open from 29th May to 18th August.
However, some netizens who managed to try the much sought after White Rabbit bubble tea drinks said that they were disappointed with the taste. They added that it tasted like normal milk tea, though some others said that they didn’t mind queuing up because they were buying a cup of nostalgia.
Would you be willing to queue for this drink? Let us know in the comments section!
