So…I do know that is dishonest as a result of technically this mochi is not Dealer Joe’s model, however in case you’re buying at TJ’s loads, you want to attempt these, and I’ve by no means seen them wherever aside from Dealer Joe’s.
For these of you unfamiliar with mochi ice cream, it is a kind of smooth, dessert-ish, rice-based shell full of ice cream, and, ohmyfreakinggosh, it is good.
I assume Mikawaya is a Japanese firm. It would not shock me if these puppies are imported from the Orient. They’re a bit dear: within the ballpark of $3 for six little ice cream ball issues…however belief me, it is value it. When you purchase them individually at a mochi ice cream restaurant in Little Tokyo, for instance, you would possibly pay $1 for each. So six for $3 is a discount. Plus, the standard is on par with ones I’ve had from an precise mochi parlor. They’re superb.
My favourite flavors are strawberry and vanilla. Chocolate is OK…solely get the inexperienced tea taste in case you LOVE inexperienced tea. I’ve by no means had mango, however I hear it is not dangerous.
Subsequent time you are within the frozen part of TJ’s, choose up a field. They’re scrump-dilly-icious. Backside line: 9.5 out of 10.
