Are eggettes at Eggettes really what your friends say they are? If you have never tried any boba shop, you’re missing out. You might have seen the Eggettes review in November but this is the students’ opinions about Eggettes themselves individually.
What A.P. Giannini students think:
"Why do people even like that boba place? Why do people even tolerate the disgusting brown balls of death? They have no taste, no softness, and feel like marbles in your mouth. The milk tea can either taste very watery or too artificial. Overall, it is a horrible place and only popular for the at least decent soft eggs that are actually related to the restaurant name. But I’ll still buy food there because it’s cheap.” - 8th grader
“Eggettes is a very convenient place because it is the closest boba place that I can go to afterschool. The prices aren’t expensive, but they aren’t the cheapest as well which makes Eggettes a place that many people love to go to. However, there are a variety of flavors, but not as much as other stores to get me satisfied. ” - 8th grader
“I think Eggettes is really yummy and I think it's good. This is good because it has good flavors and they contain not only drinks, but food as well. The tapioca isn’t other boba places that I know of.”
- 6th grader
“I think Eggettes is pretty good, I’m lactose intolerance so I get the original Eggettes. The con of this is that it is pretty expensive.” -6th grader
“I give Eggettes a ⅗ because overall it’s expensive. I usually buy boba and eggettes. It all costs the total
of about $6. Their service isn’t the best. Sometimes, the people working there are rude, since they snatch your receipt from you and they tell you to take your order and leave. However, the food still tastes good, even if the service sucks.” -8th grader
“My squad goes there like everyday, and it is lit. Like, we all drink the boba there and take pictures of how cool it is. The line is long but whatever, because I will still seem cool then those 8th graders that go to Tpumps. A definite 6 out of 5.” -7th grader
“I would give Eggettes a ⅘ because it is close by and you can walk there after school. Also, their food is not the worse thing ever but it isn’t the best. I think that Eggettes is my go to place when I feel like I am starving after school. In conclusion, I would give Eggettes a ⅘ because it is very close by and the food isn’t terrible.” - 7th grader
As you can see, there are lots of opinions on Eggettes regarding the foods quality. There are many different Eggettes in San Francisco and these A.P. Giannini students are all talking about the one at 3136 Noriega St which is between 38th Ave & 39th Ave. Most of these reviews was over 3 stars, but one of the major cons was the service or the expenses, so go at your own risk.

A few months ago, you probably noticed the posters in the hallway for the spring break trip to Washington D.C and Philadelphia. You might have wondered what it is about. For this article, I interviewed Mr. Terjesen, who has chaperoned the trip for four years. I’m going to run through where the trip goes, when it takes place, and how to apply next year.
The spring break trip is a multi-day trip for 7th and 8th graders. Students will get to learn about our government, like an in-person social studies lesson. This year’s trip is going to Philadelphia and Washington D.C. The students will visit Mount Vernon and some of the Smithsonian museums. The 2018 trip is already booked.
Next year, the location is New York and Washington D.C. It is open to 7th and 8th graders. Mr. Terjesen will have a meeting sometime in 2018 for the 2019 trip. This trip is expensive, but it covers almost everything including airfare and lodging. If you are interested in going next year, watch out for the posters in 2018! Applications for the 2019 trip will be available in early 2018.
“Congratulations to the lucky students attending, it will be a life changing experience!”
