The viral cracking drink has made it's way to Riyadh

Take a sip…

It’s no secret that Riyadh loves itself a viral drink (or a dozen). The city is known for its ability to flock to new places in record timing to find the next best drink or dessert. So, let us introduce you to the brand-new cracking drink in Riyadh.

Now available at the four branches of Drip Coffee, these viral drinks are all set to be the next best next thing in the capital.

If you don’t know much about these cracking drinks, it’s what the name suggests. You actually have to squeeze the cup itself and watch it “crack” to reveal the drink inside. Each cup is coated with melted chocolate sauce which is left to harden before your drink is poured in. Then you can squeeze away and enjoy. The Drip Coffee version is now available for SAR24.

Drip Coffee is a Saudi brand that joined the market back in 2015 by an ambitious young woman and has since become one of the most popular cafes in Riyadh.
