Going Loca for Locca Take Home Kits! #LoccaLove #TakeHomeKit #ToGo

Locca Churros & Tea Introduces DIY Boba Kits

South County’s favorite boba shop, Locca Churros & Tea, has good news for boba tea lovers, as they have launched a DIY Premium Boba Kit. The family-friendly activity provides a box with the boba and a variety of tea to make as many as 16 drinks.


Available in-store at Kaleidoscope in Mission Viejo or on Locca’s website for $35 per kit, the “Daily Joy” Boba Kit contains Organic Earl Grey, Organic Matcha, Premium Jasmine Tea, a package of boba/tapioca pearls, and eight boba straws. The “Classic” Kit contains organic black tea, organic earl grey lavender tea, and premium jasmine tea. These three tea variants contain caffeine.

Boba lovers can make their own milk tea by brewing one of the teas in the DIY kit, then adding milk, whether it is oat milk, lactose-free milk, almond milk, or regular milk. The sweetness can be adjusted to personal taste and one can add as little or as much tapioca pearls/boba as they like.


Locca’s Premium DIY bubble tea kit, hand assembled in California, makes a great birthday gift for a tea or boba lover, and fun back to school activity for families. The kits include:


- 6 Boba/Tapioca Pearls (400g/14oz) (10 servings, vacuum sealed for absolute freshness)

- Organic Black Tea (42g/1.4oz)

- Organic Earl Grey Lavender Tea (28g/1.0oz)

The Sleepover... Comedy for Family Movie Nights on Netflix #TheSleepover #Netflix

Family Movie Nights...

We have all the streaming options and love them. 

There is something for everyone on one or the other and when a new movie that is family friendly comes up we look into it. Comedy is a bonus!

We can't wait to stream The Sleepover!

In this family adventure-comedy, Clancy (Sadie Stanley) and her kid brother Kevin (Maxwell Simkins) discover that their seemingly normal stay-at-home mom Margot (Malin Åkerman) is actually a former high-end thief in the witness protection program. When both their mom and dad (Ken Marino) are kidnapped and forced to pull one last job with an ex-flame of Margot’s (Joe Manganiello), the siblings must team up to rescue their parents over the course of one action-packed night that they’ll never forget.​The Sleepover​is directed by Trish Sie (P​itchPerfect3​).
