Costco Boba Bam Instant Boba Pack Full Review


Are you a boba fan? Have you had the convenience of making boba at home? Costco now carries brown sugar boba packs to make your own bubble tea at home! Today I’m reviewing the Costco Boba Bam Instant Boba Pack. Is this as good as buying boba from a bubble tea shop?

Originating in Taiwan, boba (tapioca) milk tea is now enjoyed around the world. Boba is made from the ground cassava root, boiled and formed into small balls. The distinctive chewiness delivers a very satisfying mouth feel … BAM!

Another product available at Costco is the Costco Sriracha Hot Chili Almonds Review

Location in Store

The instant boba packs can be found in the freezer aisle at Costco. The item number is 1571731.


Milk is required to make the instant boba packs. You can non-dairy beverages or regular milk. I picked up 2% regular milk for the purpose of making the boba but I think oat milk would be fabulous. Both my husband and I think these Costco brown sugar flavor instant boba packs are pretty delicious.

If you’ve ever had a bubble tea before this is a delicious homemade version. My husband found it a bit watery and would have used less ice but I found it super flavorful and creamy and would have preferred a bit more ice.

There’s a sweet, distinct brown sugar taste and the tapioca pearls are chewy, sweet and in my opinion, the perfect texture. When I have bubble tea I like to get flavors like raspberry, mango and add things like lychee jellies so I prefer going out for bubble tea over this version from Costco. I still really enjoyed my drink though and will finish all the boba packs in the box.


The Boba Bam Instant Boba Pack box costs $15.99 Canadian at Costco. For that you get 12 instant boba sachets and 12 straws. This is pretty expensive considering it’s not a complete drink but it’s so much cheaper than buying bubble tea. One bubble tea where I live is over five dollars.

Everything that comes in the Costco Boba Bam Instant Boba Pack.


Water, Sugars (brown sugar), Tapioca starch, Modified tapioca starch, Caramel colour, Natural flavour, Cellulose gum.

There’s nothing of nutritional value on this ingredients list so I see this as more of a treat. The instant boba packs are gluten-free, vegan and nut-free. You can easily make a dairy-free bubble tea with a non-dairy beverage.
