Priced at $2.49 each, the drinks come in three flavours: dragon fruit, yellow peach, and strawberry. The drinks seem to come with the ingredients needed to make your own milk tea.
While The Alley is a Taiwanese brand, these pre-packaged drinks are noted to be made in China.
It turns out that these drinks are not “The Alley” products. In fact, if you Google “fake alley drinks” you will find that these fake drinks were being sold in Malaysia.
Back in August 2019, The Alley Canada announced that the counterfeit pre-packed drinks made its way to Canada and are not manufactured by them.
It’s recommended to buy the actual drinks from The Alley rather than the counterfeit ones. Apparently some customers complained of stomach aches after consuming the fake ones (see here).
