As I mentioned before, I'm very into drinks that come in cool bottles! Even though I was on crutches, I still made my way to Icy Cream Roll because of their fun drinks.  They were very busy at night so I went again in the day time and it was a much shorter wait.
They offer 'butterfly' teas that are blue and beautifully colored together with their lemonades.  The bottles are actually really fun because it serves as an infused as well.  You scan unscrew the top from the bottom and see the separation.  The drinks are beautiful and fun when you mix the colors together.  Alas, the drinks themselves are not very good... Which is too bad because I love the bottle!
Another trend are ice cream rolls, which they offer as well.  For those who dare, they offer durian here and it is pretty flavorful.  

All in all the decor is super cute with ice cubes as seats on astro turf.  They also have a neon lit hallway to the bathroom that's great for photo ops.  Lots of fun stuff to take pictures of here.  If only the drinks were better, I'd go back.  It's more of a one time fun trip rather than any place I'd frequent.

Roasting Water has been one of my favorite new go to milk tea places because of their awesomely cute/beautiful bottles! It's become one of my hobbies to get my drinks with the special glass and many places have started this trend.  The best thing about Roasting Water is that all their drinks come in their bottles.  There's no extra charge and the prices are very reasonable.
A good and bad thing is that they often change their bottles so if you see a previous design that you liked, it may be gone in a flash! These mermaid bottles were from a while back and they were quite beautiful.  They use to do glass bottles with wooden corks but now they use plastic bottles.  I kind of missed the glass bottles, even though the kids were not too tight.

As part of their store decor, they use super cute cups that make you want to buy or take tons of photos.  Sadly, those cups are not for sale ;(.  They've recently caught on that it would be lucrative to sell all these cute cups! So some are available and some are limited items that come with regular milk tea.  I totally bought the gimmick and bought the super expensive cups/containers lol.  If you go, try the smoothies and fun tea combos.  If you just want tons of their bottles, you can cheat and buy their Vietnamese coffee like I do since they are one of the cheaper items that still tastes great.

On our most recent short trip to Vegas, I wanted to take the time to check out the M&M and Coca Cola store.  It's been so long since I've visited the M&M store and I had find memories of the Coca Cola Museum in Atlanta.  Both stores were designed purely for fun and shopping. So if you like the respective brands and products then you will love it.
What I really wanted to do was taste the World of Coca Cola and see what other flavors are floating around the world.  Whilst in line we were attracted to the delectable floats! I think we were a little confused on the sodas that came with the float as you can't choose.  Warning: they come with regular US soda and not the international sodas.  There is 3 set options : international soda, float, and a combo of both.  If you want the fun international flavors then choose the first set, but if you want ice cream the choose the float set.  I wish we chose the combo of both because I really wanted to taste the international sodas! Why don't they make an international float set?  That would be the best of both worlds! Still the float set we got was a lot of fun and imaginative.  A lot of combos that I would never have tried.  We all agreed that the traditional root beer float still tastes the best together as it is such a classic combo :D.

Beware of the scary bear and photos the offer! I thought it was an online thing you can retrieve but it's like a Disneyland ride photo to make you purchase, MINUS the ride lol.  Still it was kind of fun and now I can say I was 'bitten' by a bear lol.  Needless to say.... I bought the photo package.  **hanging head down in shame** The gimmick works! Lol
