McDonald's and Bubble Tea

Last month, I reported on the Bubble Tea explosion in Berlin. Now, McDonald's has joined the chorus of restaurants offering this ubiquitous beverage. This sugary concoction from the far east is a big hit in Berlin and apparently the world. Take it as gospel that once McDonald's adds something to the menu:
1. Its nutritional value becomes questionable, and
2. It's no longer hip.
Is Bubble Tea destine to become a common dietary staple or will it pass the way of Pop Rocks, Shasta Soda, and Chia Pets?
