Georgetown Snap Cafe: animals rule in marketing
Following the Fox: Georgetown Snap Cafe
A red fox wearing glasses introduced us to bubble tea a few weekends ago at the Georgetown Snap Cafe. My husband and I had been walking in the heat for a couple of hours when we spotted this fox prancing across the top of sidewalk sign pointing the way to Snap, “Georgetown’s cutest cafe.” This fox promised us mouthwatering refreshments, including “Bubbletea.” We had no idea what bubble tea was, but I’m a sucker for a good animal mascot so we followed the fox down the alley way to his storefront.
Bubble Tea. Try it. You’ll like it.
Feeling uncharacteristically adventurous, and incredibly thirsty, we ordered some bubble tea. I tried the coconut. Weird and wonderful! The bottom of the glass was filled with what looked like blueberries, but were in reality big, gummy black tapioca pearls.
Why “Fish Eye” Tapioca Rules.
I LOVE large pearl tapioca. When I was a little girl I would affectionately ask for the pudding with the “fish eyes” when I wanted my grandmother to make tapioca pudding. I just never considered drinking them. Once I got over the fear that I was going to choke to death on one as I sucked it through the jumbo straw, I started to really enjoy the concoction. It was kind of like drinking a runny batch of tapioca pudding.
Now as for the fox’s claim that Snap was the cutest cafe in Georgetown, that was a little bit of a fable. It had cute potential for sure, but it needed to have a good, deep cleaning. I was also a little sad that the hip little red fox that helped us find Snap didn’t play a more prominent role once we arrived at the establishment. We did like the bubble tea enough to walk back later that evening for a second round. Thank you mister fox for showing us something new!
