Have you ever heard of Mochi? It’s a Japanese rice-cake-like dessert with ice cream inside. Every time we pass by the little Mochi box at Whole Foods I think about buying some but never do. That officially changed when we decided to try some on a whim.
It. Was. So. Good.
There were about a dozen flavors and we chose strawberry and pistachio. We actually ate them in the car because it was so hot outside we were worried they would melt on the way home! I was surprised at how solid they were. When they say mochi is a multi-sensory experience, they are right. There’s no other way to describe it other than the first bite is like biting into a dumpling, but then the coldness of the ice cream hits you, then the flavor. You kind of have to chew it but then it starts to melt – I know, it sounds crazy but it was so darn good! I can’t wait to go back and try more 🙂
