Top 4 Drinks People Like and Dislike

 

Let’s try to comprehend what the world order would be like if everyone loved and hated the same things. The world as we know it wouldn’t exist and specific things would have never been invented or discovered. Perfect examples of this theory are beverages like coffee, milkshake, frappe, and bubble tea. Long-time supporters and sworn opposers everywhere have their reasons for liking or disliking these drinks. However, here are some factual reasons why someone can either hate or love each one of them.

1. Coffee

Why Love It?
“I can’t live without my morning coffee!” That is a phrase which we hear more and more these days. Coffee drinking has turned into an everyday ritual with surprising mood-boosting effects. That is the primary reason why most people love coffee. Caffeine triggers certain glands to increase your adrenaline levels. Let’s not also forget that caffeine is addictive. So, people keep coming back for more, even if they don’t need it.

Why Hate It?
Meanwhile, some people quiver at the thought of drinking coffee. Usually, they avoid coffee because of its bitter aftertaste and harmful effect on breath and teeth. But, these are not the only reasons. Based on relevant science, some people just don’t react well to caffeine. Specifically, caffeine seems to affect the precise chemical processes within the body. So, to avoid discomfort and sleepless nights, people stay away from coffee.

2. Milkshake

Milkshake is another beverage that raises conflicted opinions.

Why Love It?
Milkshake buffs attribute their affection to its sweet taste, creamy texture and refreshing aftereffect. Also, it’s not every day that you get to enjoy a drink that is made out of any ice cream flavor you want.

Why Hate It?
On the other hand, milkshakes are not as innocent as they might look. They are bound to come with many calories and fat since milkshakes use ice cream and milk as their main ingredients. Even if you use low-fat or non-fat milk and ice cream, the calories find their way into this thick and frothy beverage.

3. Frappe

Frappe drinking is a long and beloved tradition amongst Greeks. But, is this the case for other nationalities?

Why Love It?
The main and most important reason to fall in love with frappe is that it tastes like no other coffee and has a unique aroma. It’s made out of Greek instant coffee and is served cold. So, it’s the ideal way to cool yourself off during a hot day.

Why Hate It?
Despite its unique taste, frappe coffee comes with one disadvantage. There is not extensive research, but some claim that frappe is harmful to one’s health. It’s instant coffee, after all. So, it’s not filtered. As a result, some hate frappe.

4. Bubble Tea

This sweet treat is turning into the next “it” drink. Some love it; some hate it. But, why?

Why Love It?
To begin with, it tastes amazing! Not only is it sweet and creamy, but it also contains chewy Tapioca pearls. What people also like about bubble tea (especially in London) is that it comes in several flavors. So, no disappointments there.

Why Hate It?
For some people, bubble tea equals bubble trouble. Most claim that it is not even real tea; just a beverage stuffed with artificial flavorings and chemicals as well as lots of sugar. So, a lot of people are concerned about the health impacts of consuming bubble tea and, thus, stay away from it.

Bubble Tea

In recent years, the drinks market has seen the rise in popularity for bubble tea. When you take a look at what is there to offer, you can see why this wonderful drink has exploded into the market. Its bright fruity colours and intriguing topping additions causes many to question, what is bubble tea?

So what is bubble tea?

Most people will say that it is a sweet and refreshing drink that originated in Taiwan in the 1980’s. There are many different names it has been known for. These include, pearl milk tea, boba milk tea, and zhen zhu nai cha. What makes this tea based drink different from other drinks is that it contains toppings which are found at the bottom of the cup. A wide bore straw is required to drink and suck up the toppings, creating a unique experience. In recent years, bubble tea has transformed into different variations that can be mixed with other drinks. Bubble tea has been fused with the different tea, fruit juice, smoothies and even slush.
