When we were kids everyone was buying an oven so they could get in on the pan de sal craze. Decades later there was the lechong manok craze, then shawarma, Zagu, recently yogurt, and now milk tea. Our brother-in-law witnessed a near-riot at the mall last week when a popular milk tea joint ran out of the stuff and everyone in the queue had tickets to The Avengers, which was starting in 2 minutes.
