Del Taco announces the return of a fan-favorite beverage, Poppers. The drinks first popped onto Del Taco’s menu for a limited time last June and have returned with fresh new flavors. Popping pearls has remained a popular beverage choice over the years but had not appeared on the menu of any major quick-service restaurant until Del Taco’s launch of Sprite Poppers last summer.
This year, Del Taco is literally shaking things up with the introduction of the Mini Shake Poppers alongside the Lemonade Poppers which includes two different flavored popping boba consisting of colorful encapsulated fruit juice that bursts with flavor when you bite into them. The new Poppers are available for a limited time only.
Del Taco invites fans to pop through one of its locations to try the drinks, which include:
Lemonade Poppers: Refreshing Minute Maid ZeroSugar Lemonade and round bursts of blueberry or peach flavored popping pearls served over ice. Available in regular or large size.
Mini Shake Poppers: This first-of-its-kind treat adds round bursts of blueberry or peach popping pearls to a mini version of Del Taco’s cult-classic premium vanilla shake.
“When we launched Sprite Poppers last year, it quickly became a sought-after beverage for our fans and many took to social media to share the full sensory experience of the beverage,” says Tim Hackbardt, Chief Marketing Officer at Del Taco. “Because of its viral popularity and uniqueness to our category, we knew we wanted to bring it back and share new ways for our guests to experience Poppers.”
To celebrate the return of Poppers, Del Taco converted one of its L.A. area restaurant drive-thrus into a one-night only bubble-inspired experience complete with a light show and ambient electronic music. Fans were surprised with an exclusive taste of the drinks before they launched to the world with local influencers including @popeyethefoodie joining in on the fun
