S$1.41 per cup till June 25

It also announced an introductory promotion: "Like" FamilyMart Malaysia's Facebook page, and you can get the drink at a special introductory price of RM4.90 (S$1.41) until June 25.

After the promotional period, the beverage will be available at RM6.90 (S$2.26).

Even at its usual price, the drink is relatively more affordable compared to Tiger Sugar's Brown Sugar Boba Milk, which costs S$5.30.

Too popular

Some customers complained that it got sold out quickly, or that news of it travelled faster than it was made available.

A trade-off for its affordability, perhaps.

The Japanese convenience store, which recently opened an outlet at JB City Square, is known for its variety of relatively affordable snacks.
