At Wasabi the other day and I was about to order their bubble tea but the passion fruit one contains jelly and I wanted the tapioca pearls. I was informed the only tea that contains the pearls is their milk tea, I can't have milk (DS has Cows Milk Protein Allergy and he is BF). At which point I'm told the milk tea doesn't contain milk, it contains vegetable fats.
Anyway, I emailed head office to find out and they've just replied that their milk tea doesn't contain milk confused I think I may just avoid that.

I'm not entirely sure of the right answer, but possibly ur right. It's a bit confusing.

I found having to label check when DS2 was diagnosed with a milk allergy totally eye opening. There are so many products with random ingredients.

Could be soy milk? :-/

Japanese food does not normally contain fairy produce, due to lactose intolerance. This is probably the reason.

Ah fuck. That would be dairy produce. Unsure of the lactose content in commodities produced by fairy folk. This may also be an issue though although I must admit ignorance.

What is fairy produce?!

Japanese and Chinese people don't really drink milk. They think it is disgusting drinking it past baby age.

Japanese and Chinese generally avoid both the diary and the fairy. grin

But yes, just avoid it. No need worry if you're being U. oh, you weren't

Sorry for the confusing post. It was confusing for me it's called milk tea.
therein I know what you mean about the random ingredients guacamole from Waitrose contains milk, at Wahaca it doesn't.

Most guacamole contains milk, the only supermarket one I know that doesn't is sainsburys be good to yourself x
